St. Elizabeth Village

Hamilton, Canada

FORREC’s creativity within lifestyle communities has shown no bounds. The plan for St. Elizabeth Village in Hamilton, Ontario came from our client’s vision to create an active living resort-style community for Canadians aged 55-plus. FORREC’s design for this 114-acre site reflected the warmth, charm and vibrancy of small-town Ontario. The master plan revitalized the existing residential inventory and added over 3,000 new residences. We wanted to create a place where residents, friends and outside guests enjoyed exciting amenities, commercial opportunities and entertainment experiences in an atmosphere that was youthfully vibrant. Bringing a resort-like feel to the site did precisely that.
