LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE BEST WORST YEAR EVER

KYLEMORE'S WELLNESS-INSPIRED MASTER-PLANNED COMMUNITY NOW SELLING

THANK YOU ‘LUNCH’ DONATED TO MARKHAM STOUFFVILLE HOSPITAL STAFF

On Thursday, August 13, the entire staff of Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) was treated to a delicious packed lunch courtesy of Kylemore Kares Annual Charity Golf Tournament. Angus Glen Golf Club prepared and delivered 1200 lunches on behalf of Kylemore.

“Every year the proceeds from the annual golf tournament are donated to charities. This year we wanted to say a special Thank You to frontline workers for going above and beyond the call of duty during these unprecedented times. We reached out to our local hospital to make the arrangements,” said Cailey Stollery, CEO Angus Glen and Kylemore Group of Companies.

2020 marks the thirteenth consecutive year the invitational tournament has been held at Angus Glen Golf Club. “We weren’t sure we would be permitted to go ahead, even if we had the support of our trades, suppliers and consultants. However, when the Province announced golf could resume, we called some of our contacts and found that they were eager to participate,” explained Frank Spaziani, Vice-President of Kylemore. “From there the Kylemore team together with the golf club worked tirelessly to ensure all health and safety precautions were met,” he added.

Cailey Stollery and Frank Spaziani, were joined by Suzette Strong, CEO and Allan Bell, Vice President, Community Relations and Corporate Partnerships, MSH Foundation for a symbolic cheque presentation. The lunches, combined with support provided in the early days of COVID-19, amounts to $30,000. The company has also responded to requests for special assistance due to the pandemic from Yellow Brick House and Participation House in Markham.

“Kylemore’s generous donation to Markham Stouffville Hospital speaks directly to the caring and generous spirit of our community. With this financial support and meal donation, our dedicated frontline staff is inspired and empowered,” said Suzette Strong. “Every contribution ensures our patients can receive the critical care they need, even in the face of unprecedented crisis. Thank you, Kylemore, for your long-standing support.”

The tournament was held on Friday, August 14 at Angus Glen Golf Club’s two 18-hole championship courses where golfers enjoyed outdoor on-course food, beverages, and entertainment.

In a pre-recorded video message Cailey Stollery and Frank Spaziani thanked sponsors for their ongoing support, not only of the tournament but also with quickly adapting to safety measures which allowed for the continued construction of Kennedy Manors luxury townhomes in Markham.

To date, approximately $1,950,000 in total funds has been raised and distributed to over 200 charities which include Canadian Mental Health, Evergreen Hospice, Sick Kids Foundation, Yellow Brick House, United Way, Children’s Wish, Hockey Helps the Homeless, Flato Markham Theatre, Unionville Home Society, Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, as well as organizations serving seniors.

Since 1997, Kylemore has been building luxury homes of lasting value in some of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the Greater Toronto Area. From boutique resort-style condominiums, to executive townhomes, exquisite detached residences, and magnificent custom homes, Kylemore delivers quality craftsmanship, innovative design and superior architecture to their homeowners. kylemorecommunities.com

Kylemore Communities donates gifts to youth shelter

Just in time for the holidays, the Kylemore Team shopped for much needed Wish List items and delivered them to 360°kids. The donation included toiletries, slippers, a larm clocks, gift cards, pajamas and articles of clothing donated by Angus Glen Golf Club’s Nike Pro Shop.

Since 1988, 360°kids has provided a full complement of programs and services aimed at assisting at-risk and homeless youth with a focus on York Region. Taking a complete 360-degree approach to care, the charity provides a range of programs and services that are essential to the health and well-being of kids, including counselling, outreach services, housing support, positive mentorship and employment opportunities.

Thank you!”

Throughout each year, Kylemore continues its tradition of giving back to the community by donating funds raised from its annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament, which the company matches.

Kylemore Kares Supports Hockey Helps The Homeless York Region

More than 245 players, 27 retired pros, almost 100 volunteers, 40 sponsors and more than 2,200 donors came together recently to help the homeless in York Region. As a result, Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHtH) York Region was able to grant more than $200,000 to its partner beneficiaries.

Kylemore Communities was one of 24 teams entered to play in York Region at this year’s Hockey Helps the Homeless Tournament held in Markham. Registered teams were assigned one or two former professional players, taking to the ice for three games during the day-long tournament held at Angus Glen Community Centre and Centennial Community Centre.

“It’s such an important event to raise awareness for the plight of people who are homeless and the charities that support them,” says Frank Spaziani, Kylemore’s vice-president and team captain. “Congratulations to the organizers for such a well-run and fun event. With the annual support of our consultants, trades and suppliers, Kylemore has been a donor to Hockey Helps the Homeless for many years.”

Funds raised from 2019 benefit 360°kids to give homeless and at-risk youth in York Region the safe homes needed to get back on their feet. Learn more 360kids.ca.

Construction Starts on Kylemore's Luxury Town Manors


Kylemore team marks the start of construction.

Kylemore Communities has announced the start of construction of Kennedy Manors Towns on the Park, following recent completion of roads and installation of services. The site is located within an existing residential pocket on the West side of Kennedy Road, North of 16th Avenue in Markham. The sold out neighbourhood of 132 luxurious Town Manors features classic architecture in combinations of stone, brick, and stucco.

Kennedy Manors sold quickly due to its incredible location just minutes to prestigious Unionville, and convenient to Highways 404, 407, two GO Stations, plus community centres and golf courses. Kennedy Manors layouts captivated the purchaser market by offering large, luxurious townhomes ranging from 1,700 sq.ft. to just over 2,600 sq.ft. in eleven different model types. Kylemore’s award-winning Angus Glen Community, featuring new urbanism planning elements, inspired the plan for Kennedy Manors which has rear lane 15- and 19-foot wide townhomes, as well as traditional 23 foot townhomes with street facing garages and driveways.

7 ways the new home industry gave back in 2017

The Gift of Shelter

What we learned about smart homes by talking to home builders

Throughout the month of August, we chatted with five home builders about the use of smart home technology, and we learned a lot.

We had the chance to discuss smart homes with representatives from Branthaven Homes, Canderel, Heathwood Homes, Kylemore Communities, and Losani Homes. Here’s what we learned:

1) Buyers aren’t asking for smart home upgrades

It’s just not as much of a priority as the ad campaigns make it out to be. Yes, you’ll see Google Home ads before a movie at your local theatre and you’ll read reports about the success of digital home assistants, but that doesn’t mean buyers expect builders to offer these features.

Losani was the only builder who said they’ve seen an increase in buyer interest in smart home upgrades.

2) Cost is not a deterrent

Most of the builders said that prices have come down quite a bit over the years, so it’s no longer an expensive upgrade. So, this isn’t the reason buyers aren’t asking builders about smart home features.

3) Technology is evolving too quickly

When you buy in the new home industry, it’s two or more years before you move in. In the smart tech industry, a lot can change over this amount of time, so the feature the builder was selling may be outdated by the time the home is ready. This is a major reason why smart home features aren’t being offered as standard or even upgrades.

4) Cross-platform compatibility is a must

There are so many smart home systems available, but they’re not all fully or smoothly compatible on all devices. It’s a headache for the builder and buyer trying to figure this out because it’s impossible to know what the resident will want to use to control their smart home.

5) Might be easier to just suggest a supplier

Kylemore’s approach is to just build smart home ready, then they leave it up to the buyer to make any upgrades they want. Kylemore recommends suppliers if the buyer inquires, but when it comes to system selection and installation, they stay out of it. At this point in time, we think this is a wise strategy.

6) Smart homes will be standard someday

Though there are clearly wrinkles to iron out, there was still no hesitation or question from all builders that smart homes will be standard someday. It’s only a matter of time. The research to make it happen is being done in both the new home and tech industries.

Kylemore raises $10,000 for Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada

Kylemore Communities and Angus Glen Development recently hosted their 10th annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham.

200 golfers, consisting of Kylemore’s trades, consultants, and suppliers, participated in the charity tournament. To date, Kylemore Kares has raised more than $1.3 million for a variety of charities and organizations.

At the lunch after the tournament, the City of Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti congratulated Kylemore and all the golfers on another successful year of raising money for an excellent cause.

Tiffany MacDonald, Provincial Director of Ontario, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, as well as past wish recipient, Roxy and her family, were in attendance to accept a $10,000 donation. The money will go towards granting a child’s wish.

In the past, Kylemore Kares has supported many other charities and organizations, including the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, the ALS Society of Canada, Union Villa, The Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport at the University of Toronto, and many other sports and theatre programs.

Big year for Kylemore Communities

The 10th annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament is yet another milestone event for Kylemore, making 2017 one of their most exciting years ever!

This year marks Kylemore’s 20th anniversary, which we learned more about when we caught up with Kylemore at the Angus Glen Community Party last June. This is when Kylemore unveiled their big plans for a new master-planned community in Markham!


Brownstones at Angus Glen

With the 20th anniversary, a new master-planned community in the works, and an incredibly successful charity golf tournament, we’d say that Kylemore is making a huge difference not only in Markham but across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Kylemore currently has two developments in the works; The 6th Angus Glen and Brownstones at Angus Glen.

At The 6th Angus Glen, there are large suites with golf views still available in Building B, with move-ins available this summer. The Brownstones is Angus Glen’s most private enclave of luxury townhomes. The exquisite homes overlook the South Course and are close to all the amenities of Main Street, Unionville.

Kylemore is one of those builders that really sets firm roots in the communities in which they build, and they are known for delivering top quality and expertly crafted homes to happy families of all sizes.

Maybe builders should just recommend smart home suppliers

Since there are so many smart home features and products available, it can be difficult for a new home builder to offer them as upgrades. For now, it may be wise for most builders to ensure the homes are simply compatible with smart home products and just recommend a supplier when homebuyers request them.

“Today, there’s very little required for smart technology integration into a home because it’s all wireless. We run Cat 5 wiring throughout so our homeowners only need the wireless devices,” says Craig Brown, Contracts Manager, Kylemore Communities.

“We recommend a specialty supplier to our purchasers,” he adds. “They use Sonos and Control4 Whole Home integration to tie together security, cameras, programmable lighting, door locks, heat, pool equipment, motorized window treatments, and all of this can be controlled through a cell phone or iPad/tablet.”

Though Kylemore isn’t directly offering smart home upgrades, they still recognize that some buyers desire these types of features, especially since Kylemore builds a higher-end product. The more higher-end the home, the more customization the buyer expects, which makes Kylemore’s approach even more appropriate.

Brown explains, “These systems also have bluetooth communication so it’s possible that just by walking up to your house the system would unlock your doors without a key, turn off your security alarm, turn on your pre-selected lights to your dimmer setting and open your blinds to your favourite settings. It can activate a sound system and when you leave, it will reverse these procedures. The wireless options now are unlimited all through your WIFI.”

Having your lights flip on and blinds open automatically for you? That sounds like luxury living.

Smart home upgrades seem expensive, but according to Kylemore, cost isn’t really a huge obstacle. “I think costs have come down considerably since we first started to hear about smart home technology, and there’s built-in flexibility so you can pick and choose what you want to add and pay for. There are also more suppliers so you can shop around for comparison before deciding.”

By not offering a smart home package with their new homes, Kylemore is potentially making the products more affordable for buyers, allowing them to pick and choose the features they want from a variety of providers.

When we asked whether Kylemore would ever team up with a tech giant like Google to offer smart home upgrades, Brown said that their system is working well and they will continue with their current approach.

“It’s such a personal preference and once a system is set up the user needs proper instruction to use it effectively; this isn’t something we get involved with.”

Kylemore Communities builds predominantly in Markham and currently has two amazing developments in the works; The 6th Angus Glen and Brownstones at Angus Glen. They also have some big plans for Markham, so stay tuned!

Last month, Kylemore Communities hosted their 9th Annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament in Markham at Angus Glen Golf Club, raising money for local charities and organizations.

212 golfers, including Kylemore consultants, trades, and suppliers, attended the special event. The day consisted of an early breakfast, a round of 18 holes, and a great lunch where prizes were awarded.

“What’s foremost in our minds is to lend a hand to charities and non-profit groups each year, and there’s no doubt that the need is great,” says Kylemore’s President Patrick O’Hanlon. “We’re committed to making a difference in our communities. We can design and build a house, we can plan a community, but it’s the people who make it feel like home.”

This year, two Canadian Olympians, Vicky Sunohara and Jayna Hefford, attended the Charity Golf Tournament. These gold medallists played for Team Canada and also play for the University of Toronto’s Varsity Blues, which was one of the recipients of this year’s Tournament.

The special guest speaker this year was Ira Jacobs, Professor and Dean, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto, who showed his appreciation for Kylemore’s support and funding for the new Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, which was completed in fall 2014.

To date, more than $1.2 million has been raised and donated directly to local charities and organizations. In the past, Kylemore’s Charity Golf Tournament supported Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, ALS Society of Canada, Union Villa, and other local sports, cultural and theatre programs.

Kylemore has built and developed 1,440 homes in the Angus Glen community in Markham, and when a builder is that dedicated to the flourishment of an area, it makes perfect sense to ensure that locals are supported through the growth. Any builder that devotes their time to donating money and moral support to the communities in which they’re building is a builder with a bright vision of the future.

BRIDGE CONNECTING TWO MARKHAM NEIGHBOURHOODS OPENS

MARKHAM, ON., APRIL 17, 2015 - The only paved connection between the East and West Villages of award-winning Angus Glen Community in Markham is now officially complete. To mark the occasion, City of Markham Mayor, Councillor Amanda Collucci, and ratepayers association president Paul Bourbonniere joined with Lindsay Stollery and Kylemore Communities’ Patrick O’Hanlon and Frank Spaziani, to be first to cross Blackstock Bridge, and likely the only ones to do so in golf carts. Guests were invited to unveil one of four naming plaques installed on the bridge.

 

The bridge is named after Frank Blackstock Stollery, the grandfather of Arthur Stollery who purchased the land known as Angus Glen in the 1950s. Frank Stollery’s father, William, was a Toronto-area home builder and entrepreneur who loaned Frank $1,000 which he used to open his own haberdashery shop on Yonge Street at Bloor in 1901. Frank named the business “Stollerys” which ultimately grew to be a city landmark and destination shop for men’s and women’s wear until it sold in 2015. Frank remained active in the retail clothing profession until his retirement in 1968.

“We are pleased the bridge is named after Frank in recognition of the Stollery family’s history in home building and entrepreneurship,” said Lindsay Stollery, great-granddaughter of Frank Blackstock Stollery.

Since 1997, Kylemore has been developing and building Angus Glen Community. “It has always been in our master-plan to connect the two neighbourhoods by extending Angus Glen Boulevard across the creek. We know that the residents will appreciate this new route to get around from home, to parks, shops, the Angus Glen Community Centre, Angus Glen Golf Club and local schools,” said Patrick O’Hanlon, president of Kylemore Communities. Kylemore worked under the direction of the Ministry of Natural Resources to ensure the bridge-building program caused the least amount of disruption to the creek and environment.

Angus Glen Community comprises almost 1,100 homes, numerous parks, golf courses, shops and restaurants and won a prestigious 2014 Markham Design Excellence Award. In 2013, the community received the Building Industry and Land Development (BILD) Association’s “Places to Grow Low-rise Community of the Year” Award.

Kylemore’s Sales Centre is at 285 Angus Glen Boulevard, south off Major MacKenzie Road, west of Kennedy Road. Hours are Monday to Thursday, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, Sunday and Holidays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday by appointment only call 905-887-9950. For more information visit KylemoreCommunities.com.

KYLEMORE CELEBRATES SPRING WITH A NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD RELEASE AND TWO NEW MODELS

On Saturday, May 25th, Kylemore Communities will release Parkside East, a new neighbourhood of its popular 31-, 35- and 43-foot homes in the established East Village of the award-winning Angus Glen Community in Markham. “Only in Angus Glen will you experience an award-winning golf course community near to state-of-the-art recreation, tennis, shops, parks and conveniences with access to everything great about this City,” says Kylemore’s President Patrick O’Hanlon.

“We’re thrilled to have more of these highly desirable homes. The rear lane concept is a proven winner among our buyers who appreciate the fabulous streetscapes which result in having the garage at the back, not to mention the extra light indoors and the privacy of a courtyard-style back garden,” explains O’Hanlon. Angus Glen is an architecturally controlled master-planned community. Homes are constructed with exteriors of stone, brick and stucco with decorative accents, steep roof pitches and mouldings which result in attractive streetscapes.

To help launch this special Parkside East neighbourhood, Designer Jane Lockhart of Jane Lockhart Interior Design in Toronto, has added her signature style to two exciting new models to show the appeal of these family-sized, two-storey designs. Jane Lockhart has collaborated with Kylemore on eleven earlier Model Homes and has first-hand experience with the company’s approach to building a home of lasting quality. She is skilled at translating this commitment into models which illustrate an appreciation for life in a Kylemore home.

“It’s a treat to design two model homes at the same time. It gives us an opportunity to showcase the versatility of a Kylemore floorplan simply by creating a unique colour palette for each home with stunning results! These spacious homes are designed for the way today’s modern families live – with all the comfort, style and detail homeowners expect from Kylemore,” says Jane.

The Oakley is a 4-bedroom 3,518 square foot home that Jane describes as evocative of haberdashery, incorporating classic influences and darker colours with touches of Ralph Lauren style. The second Model is a 3-bedroom home of 2,338 square feet called The Riley. Jane describes the ideal buyer for this home as couples who are downsizing and families with young children as there is plenty of room to grow in this home. Jane’s design theme for The Riley taps into current trends which lean towards lighter and fresher colours. Kylemore’s trend-forward designs include an ensuite bathroom for each of the bedrooms.

Deluxe interiors have gas fireplace, natural finish oak staircase, 9-foot main floor ceilings, cornice mouling in dining room, granite countertops and quality cabinetry in kitchens and a host of other desirable finishes. Each Parkside East home will also include an Upgrade Kitchen Appliance package.

Parkside East homes range from 2,200 square feet on a 31-foot lot to 4,088 square feet (including loft) on a 43-foot lot. Prices range from $959,990 to $1,359,990. Closing dates will be offered starting in late 2014.
