There is a charming sense of nostalgia to one of Reginas newer subdivisions: The Greens on Gardiner. Located in southeast Regina, this community offers pleasing streetscapes, inviting green spaces, pedestrian-friendly walkways and grassy boulevards more often associated with mature neighbourhoods.
The development incorporates numerous environmentally-sustainable practices, such as designating 40 aces of green space for features including an environmental reserve, a rainwater conservation system, permeable paving and selection of drought-tolerant turf and plants.
Bordered between Arcola Avenue and Woodland Grove Drive, this subdivision is now in it's third and fourth phase of development.
Construction has already started on Gateway to The Greens, a ground floor commercial development on Chuka Boulevard with condos above it. The condominium units will range in size from 500 to 1,200 square feet and promise to be attractive to first-time buyers. Chuka Boulevard is a mixed use street, with a combination of commercial and multi-unit development, including apartment buildings and some seniors' residences.
Phase Five will introduce some apartment rental buildings, a first for the Greens. There will also be a high-level seniors' care facility and a gated higher-end condominium development featuring single and double attached units.
Phase Six will include the new school, the adjacent park and a couple hundred lots. Forty of those will be park lots, a variety of townhouses, lane lots and lots for houses with single and double front garages.
This spring, an exciting pilot project of carriage homes opened in The Greens on Gardiner. The development has 11 laneway lots, each featuring a primary streetfront residence with a detached combination garage and revenue property facing the back lane.
When completed, The Greens on Gardiner will be a full-scale development, homes for all age groups with housing choices for everyone from first time buyers, to families, to someone retiring and senior homes.
