Route 22 Townhomes: Canterbury Estates
Update (September 2020)
Ryan Homes intends to construct a new townhouse subdivision known as Canterbury Estates containing 38 new townhouses within 9 buildings on the 3.3 acres located on the north side of Route 22 and west of its intersection with Old Rand Road. The primary facades of the buildings will be a combination of masonry using brick or stone and fiber cement board
On September 18, 2020 staff conducted its pre-construction meeting with the developer of the Canterbury Estates Townhomes on the north side of Route 22, the contractors and various trades prior to issuance of a site development and inspection permit. The property owner intends to begin mass grading of utility installation on the property in the upcoming weeks. Following the completion of the installation of utilities, private streets and building pad preparation, Ryan Homes intends to begin the construction of the townhouse buildings on the site. Canterbury Estates is a 38-unit 9-building subdivision on the north side of Route 22, east of the CN railroad bypass and west of Old Rand Road.
The site plan is designed to minimize exposure to the CN railroad. End units nearest the rail will have windows with enhanced sound-proofing ratings to help noise impacts and a screening fence will be construction along the frontage of the property with the rail to minimize potential conflicts. The price points for the townhomes will start in the high $200,000's and are expected to average in the low to mid $300,000's.
