fyi all - This project is coming to a close. The first two families moved in this week and others are moving in throughout August and September. As Formwell's first project, it seems like it's gone pretty smoothly (from the perspective of someone without knowledge of the industry, but who lives on this street.) The progress has been good, and the homes are looking really nice. I know at least those of us with kids on the street are looking forward to having more neighbours (friends, potential babysitters, and my daughter has big plans to launch a cat sitting business on our street!)
Cat/pet sitting is a huge, huge opportunity! You have no idea what people would pay for that piece of mind.
Agreed re: the opportunity in cat sitting. Except our daughter is only 10, so "her" cat sitting business inevitably means "her & mom/dad" cat sitting business. She's too young to just send off into someone else's home by herself yet. Though it's coming! I think she and a friend have big plans to launch a larger cat sitting network of their friends a la "babysitters club" series. I love the entrepreneurial spirit!
Also, a few of us neighbours on the street kindly asked Formwell if they'd consider hosting a welcome party for the new neighbours in their development, that's also open to the rest of the street so we can welcome them to the neighbourhood and get to know one another. I hope they say yes! Washington Ave is changing so quickly, between this development, the Washington 8 (8 homes built on a deep lot that previously held 1 older home), and a development that replaced 1 home backing onto the playground with 4 homes. All together, these three recent developments replaced 5 homes with 46, all within the span of a few years. Exciting!
46 new homes that were built without the need for any "missing middle" housing policy.
The key difference being the developer secured the higher density or a rezoning, and capitalized on the uplift. Now the City did it for them, so the seller capitalizes and the financiers need the developer to come up with even more cash to bankroll their project.
