When planning new communities, Mattamy Homes CEO Peter Gilgan draws inspiration from the New Urbanist movement. This includes designing communities to be pedestrian-friendly, preserving natural environments wherever possible, and residents should be provided with numerous local amenities. This approach, combined with constant adaption to new trends in design and homeownership, has led to Mattamy becoming the largest private home builder in North America.
Mattamy Homes was founded in 1978. Since then, Gilgan and his team have overseen the company’s successful expansion both across Canada and into some of the US’s most competitive housing markets. Throughout this period of growth, Mattamy has received a slew of awards, a highlight being winning BILD’s Homebuilder of the Year award in 2018, 2017, 2015, 2014 and 2011. In addition, the company has consistently been named one of the best places to work in Canada. This allows them to recruit the most experienced and dedicated industry professionals, who then deliver clients on-time results and excellent customer service. In addition, Mattamy believes in giving back to the communities of which it is a part-and has made generous donations to numerous charity organizations. The Peter Gilgan Foundation has directed over $260 million dollars to causes such as environmental protection, educational initiatives and youth organizations.
Hawthorne Village. In keeping with the principles of New Urbanism, the centre of Hawthorne Village is a 7.2 hectare park that serves as the focal point of the community. Milton GO station is just minutes away by car, and myriad shopping and dining options are also close by.
Bronte Creek by Mattamy Homes. What sets this intimate community apart from its neighbors is its proximity to nature. True to the name, Bronte Creek Provincial Park is located directly behind the development. In addition, Bronte GO and Highway 403 are both a short drive away.
Fletchers Meadows. With its mixture of commercial and residential development and growth centered on the local GO station, Mount Pleasant is one of the most pedestrian-friendly suburban in the GTA. Fletchers Meadows sits in the heart of this vibrant community, and includes a park at its center.
