Project:  Residences of Lora Bay

(Thornbury, Ontario)

Client: Heathwood Homes

 

BMA was retained to evaluate the overall master plan for the Lora Bay community relative to the initial phase of development by Heathwood Homes. The master plan was modified relative to a wider variety of product type from coach homes to smaller and larger detached lots including the relationship with the golf course and existing Georgian Trail (former rail line) which serves as walking and bike trail. The plan proceeded with private condominium roads and unique engineering standards. 

 

The community was well received by the marketplace.

Project: The Lake Joseph Club

(Muskoka District, Ontario)

Client: ClubLink Corporation

 

BMA worked with the overall ClubLink team to develop this flagship golf resort destination on the former Elgin House resort property at the confluence of Lake Joseph and Lake Rosseau in the heart of the Muskoka resort district.

 

The renewed resort consisted of a championship 18-hole course, a 9-hole academy course (both designed by Tom McBroom), golf clubhouse, a waterfront restaurant complete with a significant dock facility, 24 luxurious golf villas and related support infrastructure on a 421 acre (170 ha) property.

 

BMA also participated in a master plan exercise outlining a further build out of resort accommodation. The conversion from historic resort to a marketable resort real estate asset was tied to a carefully articulated revised zoning for the property.

King Valley Golf Club is located on Dufferin Street, just west of Aurora, in King Township. An application was submitted for 80 homes adjacent to the 10th hole and practice facility at the golf course on the 150 acre site.

 

The application was resolved at the Ontario Municipal Board with the community consisting of 55 homes, 10 resort type units (short stay occupancy) and a private amenity building with swimming pool.

 

BMA’s contributions included land planning, management of planning applications (local and Region of York) and the OMB hearing, as well as coordinating all technical aspects of the development such as a unique communal service system that utilizes the golf course irrigation system for dispersal of treated effluent.

 

The community was built out by a quality Toronto builder and is now complete.
