Middlesex County is meeting the needs of its growing population with a surge of residential options. The County’s recent housing needs assessment found that the demand for multi-unit housing will only increase as local communities are seeing population growth of up to 21 per cent, driven by young professionals and families moving to the area. To meet that demand, the County is prioritizing the construction of townhomes, condos, and apartment buildings. 

In Lucan, the newly-constructed Lucan Woods III apartment complex on Butler Street boasts 23 units in three mid-rise apartment buildings. Available units range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom units with a den. Each spacious unit includes a dishwasher, in-suite laundry and lovely balcony views of the town or adjacent farmland. Barrier-free units are also available to accommodate the growing number of seniors.

Then there is the Kilworth Heights West development in Kilworth. This mixed townhome community offers the convenience of city living with the charm of living in the country. It puts the Thames River, Komoka Provincial Park, hiking trails and open spaces at your doorstep. It includes eight townhouse lots and a 77-unit free-standing condominium block. 

Just down the road in Komoka, a private-public partnership is leading to an innovative development that will see a mix of housing types and the construction of a civic square. Developer, Design for Happiness, says it will be people-centred and made for human connections.

In Mt. Brydges, the housing revolution continues as Banman Developments moves ahead with the Timberview Trail project. It will offer approximately 24 townhomes and 16 semi-detached units. It features floor plans up to 2070 sq. ft. and is close to parks, schools, restaurants and shops.

And finally, enjoy carefree family living at Sifton’s Clear Skies development in Ilderton. The mixed residential subdivision includes 32 townhomes just off Hyde Park Road. A short 10-minute drive will bring you to all the major amenities you need at the Hyde Park Power Centre and Masonville Mall.

Gone are the days when a single type of dwelling dominated the housing scene. Middlesex County is witnessing a remarkable transformation, with the housing mix now including a range of choices, from charming townhomes and cozy condominiums to spacious apartments, providing residents with an array of living styles to suit their preferences. From Dorchester to Glencoe to Parkhill there is no shortage of housing options to meet your needs.
