The Town of Whitby is the headquarters for the Region of Durham. There are approximately 92,000 people residing in Whitby. Many local residents are employed by corporations such as BMW Canada Inc., Sony of Canada, Lear Corporation, Enbridge, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Canada, and Woodbridge Foam, which are all based in Whitby.
In recent years executive families are discovering the many positive attributes that this town has to offer including: well designed and affordable new home subdivisions, easy access to Toronto, a beautiful waterfront, highly regarded schools, a revitalized downtown shopping district, and outstanding recreational amenities.
The north-end of Whitby is one of the Greater Toronto Area’s busiest districts when it comes to the building of new homes. Most of the building activity here is centred in the historic Village of Brooklin located at Thickson and Winchester Roads. The new home developers in this part of Whitby have worked closely with town planners to build attractive homes and new neighbourhoods, that are well planned and designed. Many of the subdivisions in Brooklin have an “early Ontario” theme. These houses have Victorian style influences with gabled roofs and inviting front porches. An emphasis has also been placed on streetscapes, with old fashioned street lamps, tasteful landscaping, and public spaces.
