living green

LEED-ND has been a key focus of Greystone right from the beginning with several LEED-ND initiatives integrated into the master plan of the community. Goals include community amenities and connectivity, walkability and sustainable energy. Key features include extra-wide tree-lined allées, bike paths and storage, close proximity to LRT and integrated transit stops, a vibrant public plaza, room for a farmer’s market, a pedestrian road that backs on to 30 meters of green space along the Rideau River, Energy Star homes, a diversity of housing options, a mix of commercial and retail, the retention of key heritage components, and seamless design integration into the surrounding community.

Located just minutes from the downtown core in a scenic and historic setting, Greystone Village is destined to become one of Ottawa’s most desirable communities to live, work, play, shop and more, as well as Ottawa’s only public LEED-ND candidate community! It’s because of this that Regional Group is proud to lead the way in green design principles in Ottawa.
