The legacy of Minto Communities in Barrhaven continues in Phase 3 of Riversbend at Harmony

Minto Communities Barrhaven

For almost seven decades, Minto Communities Ottawa has been building master-planned communities across the city. The developer’s legacy has led to some notable achievements, like Builder of the Year at the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association Awards (2022, 2021, 2019, 2016) and building the Minto Dream Home for CHEO for more than 20 years. Minto’s commitment to community is clear, and that dedication continues in Ottawa South. 

There’s a home for everyone in the city’s evolving south end. From the storybook neighbourhood of Quinn’s Pointe to Anthem, Minto’s newest community in Barrhaven, to the upcoming return of Riversbend at Harmony—whether it’s a quick occupancy home, an attainable Metro Townhome or new designs to meet the needs of modern families.

Minto Communities homes in Barrhaven

Riversbend at Harmony: serenity along the Jock River

After selling out in the beginning of 2022, Riversbend at Harmony returns to Barrhaven. The grand opening of Phase 3 is on sale soon, bringing brand new executive townhomes and low-maintenance avenue townhomes to the community.

For growing families and multi-generational living, brand new executive townhomes are a welcome choice. Unlike most townhomes in Ottawa, these designs offer buyers the choice between three–six bedroom floorplans—all of which include a finished basement and can be upgraded with a basement bedroom and bathroom.

Alternatively, avenue townhomes are a great choice for those who desire low-maintenance living. These three-storey towns feature 2–3 bedrooms, a second-floor balcony and an open-concept main living area. Best yet, they were recently redesigned with more interior square footage and storage than previous models.

Time for you and time for play

From new home designs to new and established parks to green space and waterways. To add to the current parks in and around the community, Phase 3 in Riversbend at Harmony will include a new two-acre park. Plus, it’s situated within walking distance from the Jock River, Stonebridge Trail and many other multi-use pathways.

Conveniences are a quick drive away from the community, as well. Meaning new homeowners are minutes from a full plate of tasty restaurants, the Minto Recreation Complex and big box stores, like Walmart Superstore and Toys R Us. Access to Highway 416 is also close by, along with great schools, such as Half Moon Bay Public School and St. Joseph Catholic High School.

Quinn’s Pointe: ready for quick occupancy

Quinn’s Pointe is considered a storybook neighbourhood, tucked away with quiet, family-friendly streets but still close to countless Barrhaven amenities. However, Phase 4 in the community is nearly sold out—only a limited number of quick occupancy homes are available. 

For eager buyers, this presents an opportunity to buy new and close sooner. And save thousands of dollars at the same time. Move-in-soon and move-in-ready homes range from single family homes to 2- and 3-storey townhomes. And all models are fully equipped with upgrades. Upgrades vary per model.

Anthem: Attainable homes in Barrhaven’s new town centre

Anthem is the perfect spot for investors and first-time buyers in Barrhaven. This new community became an instant hit, with the first release selling out within days of the grand opening. The following release continues to sell fast and buyers are urged to act fast. 

Anthem is made up of attainable metro townhomes exclusively. These homes start from the $400s and offer two bedrooms, three-piece bathrooms, private entrances and outdoor spaces, like large ground-level patios and generous balconies. Underground parking is also available.

Poised to become Barrhaven’s future downtown, the community is walkable, trendy and connected. The invigorating urban vibe of Anthem is undeniable. From the shared neighbourhood amenities and the nearby shops along Strandherd Drive to the future LRT stop and the city’s planned civic centre.
