As Canada’s greenest real estate developer, Windmill projects converge their core values of integrity, sustainability and innovation. The ecological and environmental responsibility inherent in our project management approach allowed for the opportunity to participate in Enbridge’s Savings By Design campaign – a building initiative that subsidizes the Integrated Design Process and provides additional incentives for adopting green practices throughout the course of a building’s development. Learn more about this program here:

Using an Integrated Design Process, Windmill engaged a team of sustainability professionals who worked in collaboration to offer creative and innovative designs that partner sustainable structures with contemporary architecture. Inspired to make a difference in our communities, Windmill offers green features and practices in conjunction with the Canada Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum certification status such as innovative heating and cooling systems, tight building exterior (envelope), and quality appliances and lighting fixtures. These elements of design not only help minimize our carbon footprint but offer our homeowners real savings in lower energy bills, proving that the best ecological choices are also good economic choices. With new projects underway in Centretown and Hintonburg, Windmill buyers are sure to be seduced by the neighborhood charms and the modern conveniences of urban living.
