The Commons: Glenview Homes launches new phase in Orleans community

Glenview Homes creates vibrant communities that are built to last

Glenview Homes asked, their residents answered. 

That’s why phase two of The Commons — a vibrant Orleans community set to launch new town homes — now includes flexible features to suit any family.

“For us, being on the cutting edge is about understanding people’s needs,” said Jamie Langdon, Glenview Homes senior new homes sales consultant. “We’re always listening and adapting to how homeowners want to live.”

Keeping their clients’ current and future needs top of mind is also why Glenview embeds new communities within existing neighbourhoods, rather than on the outskirts of town.

The Commons is no exception. “We chose Innes Road because it’s a central location,” said Langdon. “Residents will have access to amenities like high-quality schools and public transportation, as well as a 15-minute commute to downtown.”

What’s being built?

The Commons phase two development will initially offer Orleans buyers five new town home designs.

The new stock of 101 units will range from 1,806 to 2,286 square feet, including finished basement rec rooms.

From there, you’ll discover what the Glenview slogan “start with more” really means. 

This family-run business has always offered the families that buy their homes more up-front value by prioritizing quality over quantity.

It’s why their new builds offer walk-in pantries, open-concept floor plans, designer options , bigger bathrooms and kitchens equipped with quartz countertops, and taller upper cabinets. “We’re always noting what our clients are looking for,” said Langdon.

New features among the five Innes Rd. town home models include one double car garage unit, a flex area that could be your home office, laundry on the second floor, the option to add a fifth basement bedroom, as well as contemporary exteriors. 

Glenview also offers several custom design options for each model so you can design the home your family needs from the start. Architectural options include an additional bedroom, a second-floor family room, or a bathroom in the basement.

Variety creates vibrant communities

With over a decade of Ottawa home building experience, Glenview has learned that creating a vibrant community that evolves organically for generations to come is what buyers value most. 

“Ottawans tend to pick an area, and stay there,” said Langdon. 

It’s why The Commons phase two will also include several new single-home model plans later this year, in addition to the new town homes.

This home was designed specifically with their customers’ feedback in mind. It includes a main floor bedroom with a full ensuite bathroom, as well as a second floor loft space. The model home will be open for viewing in April.

“We’re marketing The Prescott as a multigenerational home,” said Langdon. “But homeowners could use the additional rooms as a nanny suite or home office, whatever they need.”

In addition to being close to some of the top public schools in Ottawa, another family-friendly community plan for The Commons is a new community park, which will be bigger than what’s been built in other communities.

What Langdon may love the most about The Commons is how the variety of housing options keeps families together. 

“When parents, kids, grandparents, and aunts and uncles live in the same area, it makes the community itself very unique,” he said.

Kelsey Johnson and her husband were interested in The Commons for its proximity to family and high-quality finishes, but it was the kind of service a smaller builder can offer that sealed the deal. 

“Glenview staff have always had the time to answer our many questions and are very responsive,” said Johnson. “Jamie, Raymond and Nichole have been easy to work with and super helpful as we navigated building our forever home.”
