The Daniels Corporation Commits to a Sustainable Future

Developer's New Collection of Townhomes in Regent Park, Called Field House EcoUrban Towns, Launches Corporate Focus on Sustainability

TORONTO, July 27, 2020 /CNW/ - The Daniels Corporation ("Daniels"), Canada's leading developer of low rise and condominium housing communities, signalled a stronger corporate focus on sustainable home building with the launch of Field House EcoUrban Towns, in Toronto's Regent Park.  This townhome community, and subsequent Daniels projects that bear the "EcoUrban" stamp will boast a litany of innovative construction and lifestyle technologies that lower carbon emissions and support a fossil free living experience.

"Innovation is in Daniels' DNA," says Director of Project Implementation, Adam Molson.  "From our founder, to our current leadership team, The Daniels Corporation's approach has historically been built on a commitment to doing better.  Whether we challenged ourselves to address the market's affordability crisis, the challenges facing first time buyers, or responsible stewardship and community engagement, we have always been determined to be at the vanguard of the Canadian development industry. Prioritizing susainability is the latest example of our corporate commitment to doing better," adds Molson.

Daniels is determined to give home owners the power to reduce their contribution to climate change without demanding dramatic changes to their lifestyle.  By utilizing new construction technologies and innovative lifestyle features, EcoUrban communities will allow buyers to dramatically reduce their carbon output.

Now under construction with occupancies expected in less than a year, Field House is the first Daniels community to boast the EcoUrban designation.  The community features 24, three-storey townhomes, ranging in size from just over 1,319 square feet to just over 1,700 square feet. 

Prices at Field House start at $1.1 million.

It is anticipated that these EcoUrban towns, once constructed and occupied, will use 52% less energy, emit 89% fewer greenhouse gases and reduce energy costs by 11% as compared to Daniels' traditional townhouse product. Furthermore, approximately 18% of the development's energy needs will be supplied by the integrated solar panel array.

These homes use all electric building systems, thereby enabling residents to live 'fossil fuel free.'  They also benefit from low VOC paint, high efficiency heat pumps, triple glazed windows, low flow faucets, and single flush low consumption toilets.  Suite hydro and water will be individually metered using 'Smart Meter" technologies.

"We know there are a lot of people out there who are concerned about climate change and want to do their part, but don't know where to start. Buildings are responsible for 45% of Toronto's greenhouse gas emissions and so by offering people a new kind of home, that allows one to live fossil fuel free, we're trying provide a meaningful way for today's homeowner to take action and be part of the solution to today's climate crisis" says Adam Molson.  "Daniels decision to design and build our EcoUrban communities, where climate impact is one of the first considerations playing a key role in their planning, design and construction, makes it easier for those who want to do the right thing."
