The core of Aoyuan International’s development philosophy is the creation of communities that emphasize a healthy, active lifestyle. Sites are selected based on their proximity to transit services, parks and other necessary amenities. Additionally, the company works tirelessly to ensure that its buildings meet the highest standards of environmental friendliness.
Aoyuan International is a branch of China Aoyuan Group, a Hong Kong Stock Exchange-listed development firm, and was founded with the aim of diversifying the parent company’s investments to locations outside of China. In addition to their Toronto presence, Aoyuan has offices in Hong Kong, Sydney and Vancouver-some of the world’s most desirable housing markets. In each of these locales, they aim to provide walkable, amenity-rich living environments that allow for residents to live without relying on a car for transportation.
