Living Homes today announced the launch of its expansion into Canada with an eco-enclave of four modern homes in North Toronto.  Steve Glenn, founder of Living Homes, was kind enough to share with us some detail of the upscale project, which will be fabricated by Conquest and developed by a new company called Nexterra Green Homes.


As you might imagine, these homes will be contemporary and exclusive.  Pricing will likely start somewhere near $1.6 million (Canadian) for these Energy Star and LEED Platinum seeking homes.

The prefabs will also be very green, featuring wood-frame modular construction, superior insulation, triple-pane windows, and design according to Living Homes’ Z6 goals (i.e., zero energy, water, waste, emissions, carbon, and ignorance).

Indeed, Barry Campbell, co-managing director of Nexterra, envisions “an eco oasis of sustainable luxury in the middle of the city” that “causes minimal disruption to the surrounding neighborhood.

The show home should be open for public tours in the Winter 2010, and we’ll definitely follow up on progress by that time.  Located at 20 Senlac Road, all four homes are available for purchase.
