I bought a house in their other Barrhaven community (Conservancy) last year. If you are interested in buying at the Ridge, let me know if you would like a referral--we would each get $1000 cashback....

Interesting...I believe on the plans this intersection was planned to get traffic lights put in eventually? I don't know what a triangle curb is but could this be the first step in adding lights?

Super useful info, thanks! I can't think of much more land that is available for development that's in "Barrhaven main" (i.e. north of Jock River I assume) so seems quite likely that the area being...

Is it a big road running west-to-east? I think that road is the Chapman Mills extension (which yes, does include a proposed future BRT lane in the middle). I'm assuming this according to the site map...

I believe builders only have to follow the building code that was in effect at the time they submitted the plans for the houses (or something like that). So it's quite common for new build houses not...
