The Daniels Corporation is launching the first Daniels’ EcoUrban-designed community this summer in Regent Park. Daniels Field House Towns consists of a limited collection of 24 three-storey towns with spacious interiors, an amenity-rich downtown location and environmentally-friendly features.
Designed to be fossil fuel-free, Field House Towns makes it easy for residents to reduce their contribution to climate change without making dramatic changes to their lifestyles. Daniels’ EcoUrban-esigned residences provide comfortable, stylish living while helping to minimize the impact on the environment through innovative technologies and green features. The result is a 52 percent reduction in energy use, 89 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and a reduction of overall energy costs by 11 percent.*
“We know there are a lot of people out there who are concerned about climate change and want to do their part, but don’t know where to start,” said Adam Molson, Director of Project Implementation at The Daniels Corporation. “Buildings are responsible for 45 percent of Toronto’s greenhouse gas emissions and so by offering people a new kind of home, that allows one to live fossil fuel free, we’re providing a meaningful way for today’s homeowner to take action and be part of the solution to today’s climate crisis.”
By using an all-electric building system with rooftop solar panels, which generate renewable energy on-site, carbon dioxide will not be emitted through the operation of these homes. Additionally, triple-glazed windows offer superior thermal insulation and minimize heat loss in the winter, while a fully wired electric vehicle charging system comes complete with an SAE J1772 connector.
“Daniels’ decision to design and build our EcoUrban communities, where climate impact is one of the first considerations playing a key role in their planning, design and construction, makes it easier for those who want to do the right thing,” adds Molson.
Overlooking the neighbourhood athletic grounds, the homes’ modern exteriors by IBI Group are characterized by welcoming entryways, oversized picture windows and warm brick cladding. A central courtyard features lush landscaping and secure, underground parking is available.
Inside, the sleek interiors by HOK range in size from 1,319 to 1,708 square feet with three-bedroom and three-bedroom-plus-den models available. Each layout is open-concept in design with nine-foot ceilings in principal rooms, plenty of natural light, and gourmet kitchens with abundant prep and storage space. Environmentally-friendly features include low VOC paint, high-efficiency heat pumps, low-flow faucets and toilets, “Smart Meter” technology, and Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) that provide a direct supply of fresh air while recovering heat from exhaust air.
Residents of Daniels Field House Towns will have a variety of local amenities just steps from their doors. In addition to the athletic grounds (which include a soccer pitch, running track, basketball court and ice rink), the nearby Pam McConnell Aquatic Centre houses a 25-metre lap pool, warm water/therapeutic pool, swing rope, diving board and water slide. Everyday conveniences include a Freshco supermarket, Shoppers Drug Mart, Regent Park Community Centre, and several boutiques and coffee shops. Plus, with public transit, walkways and bike lanes close by, areas like the Distillery District, Financial District, Leslieville and Cabbagetown are easily accessible.
Prices at Daniels Field House Towns start $1.1 million with tentative occupancy scheduled for spring 2021. To learn more, be sure to register for priority status at fieldhousetowns.com and book an appointment at the presentation centre located at 500 Dundas St. East.
