It's Good to Be Green

These features include Energy Star appliances, programmable thermostats, low-flow toilets and shower heads, Low VOC paints, and more. We are also highly cognizant of our own environmental impact, and continuously take steps and look for ways to reduce it.

We understand and value our place in the urban fabric of a great community.

At Auburn, we believe in building communities that will last for generations, providing a wide variety of housing choices to foster diversity in our neighbourhoods. Auburn works hard to design communities that will contribute to the vibrancy of a city’s downtown. Two recently completed projects – The Harriston, a high-rise tower with stunning views of both the city lights, and the Thames River in downtown London, as well as Arrow Lofts, a unique loft residence in Kitchener that has contributed to downtown living. Our newest development, Watercrest in downtown Barrie, boasts luxury rental condominiums with breathtaking views of Kempenfelt Bay. Auburn commits to offering a stylish, functional and affordable place to call home while fostering the evolution of downtown neighbourhoods. 

We are very excited about The Barrel Yards Development in Waterloo, which will offer high-rise condos, apartments and live/work spaces, offices and a four star hotel/restaurant. 

Auburn Developments strives to build well designed, quality homes that enrich communities.
