Greatwise Developments celebrated a major milestone at its highly anticipated Fresh Towns development in Ottawa last weekend. The Toronto-based builder held an official groundbreaking ceremony at its sales office at Baseline Road and Morrison Drive on Sunday afternoon. Guests, including many purchasers, enjoyed music by multi-instrumentalist Kelly Craig, CEO and Musical Director for the Shine Group, while indulging in tasty treats and gourmet fare by Tulips and Maple. They were also among the first to view the project’s Signature Collection. This latest release consists of 11 stunning townhomes geared for outdoor living with designs that feature spacious backyards and rooftop patios.

“We were thrilled with the turnout,” said Natan Ary, Vice-President of Development, Greatwise Developments. “Groundbreaking to start construction is an exciting milestone in any community, and we are grateful to the many purchasers who placed their trust in us to build their new homes.”


Priced from the upper $300,000s, the homes at Fresh Towns range from 1,283 square feet to 1,745 square feet and include one- or two-car garages, two- to three-bedrooms, and laundry rooms on either the main floor or on the bedroom level. The Rooftop Collection features expansive outdoor terraces on top of each home, while those in the Contemporary Collection boast private backyard patios.

The new Signature Collection includes nine innovative townhomes and two semi-detached — the first time that semis have been offered in the Fresh Towns community. The latest designs provide residents a traditional backyard and an incredible rooftop patio to enjoy the outdoors. That’s in addition to spacious interiors with a study and powder room on the ground level, generously-sized bedrooms and luxurious master ensuites (all as per plan).

“Interest in the new designs is phenomenal,” said Derek Nzeribe, Ottawa Regional Director at the Milborne Group. “The Fresh Towns community is an example of how desirable the West Ottawa market is right now, especially when builders offer excellent designs at excellent prices.”


Exteriors boasts modern architecture by award-winning architecture firm Roderick Lahey Architect Inc. Characterized by brick with cement board and wood-like siding accents, the elevations are clean and modern resulting in a sophisticated and inviting streetscape.


The interiors were designed by West of Main and offer bright, vibrant and open-concept spaces for easy living and entertaining. Principal rooms feature nine-foot ceilings and engineered hardwood floors throughout, while kitchens are finished with stone countertops, designer backsplashes and a stainless steel appliance package.

Located at Morrison Drive and Baseline Road, Fresh Towns is ideally situated in an established neighbourhood close to a wealth of local amenities. Bayshore Shopping Centre, for example, is a short six-minute drive away and offers nearly 900,000 square feet of retail space anchored by Hudson’s Bay, Winners/Homesense and Walmart.


The family-friendly community is also within close proximity to parks, playgrounds and schools such as St. Paul High School and Pinecrest Public School. And with easy access to OC Transpo routes and major thoroughfares like Baseline Road, Highway 416 and Highway 417, Fresh Towns is well-suited for commuters travelling to downtown Ottawa.

With construction now underway, be sure to visit the Fresh Towns sales centre at 2795 Baseline Road to learn more about the development. Hours are Monday to Thursday from 11am to 6pm and weekends from 11am to 5pm.
