Hi Lot,
We went with the alarm system, pretty good deal. Just make sure though if you go with them or another provider, get the controls at both your front door and entrance from the garage, I think it was only an extra $100. We did get some duct placed as well from the basement to the second floor incase we do potlights upstairs. My house is wired already? I take it you were there? if so, I will have to go and take a peek!

Default Sunday evening at the site, please see pics... stolen steel beams...

Please see pics. It is clear that the site is lacking security guardI wasn't able to take a clear picture of the license plate of the truck, but it can be seen that "4 steel beams" were in the truck, wheelbarrow. I hope the ones that they took are really garbage and not a steel beams for someone's house.

Hi everyone...I currently live in Burlington and I am looking to purchase in the next phase at this location however I have been trying in vain to get some prices and with no response from either builder except for a 'thank you for your interest check the website' message. They don't even have any models/floorplans available online to look at anymore but I drove through the site over the weekend and see it is coming along and the homes look great! I was wondering if any of you could give me some prices from the first phase so I know roughly the ball park for this location? And would any of you also be able to tell me when you think they might be releasing for phase 2? They wouldn't give me that information either so I have resorted to this website in hopes of getting some info! I would appreciate any little bits ....thank you )

Hi want to be newbie,
The second phase probably won't be released until later next year. The prices in this phase for Starlane ranged from $405,900 for a 1,700 sq ft home and up to $530,000 for a 3,300 sq ft home (prices were a little higher for each depending on elevation/5 bedroom option and walk out basement lot. Also, they did raise the prices of the homes within the first hour and a half of having the doors open.

Thank you for the info! So they are not releasing until 2013? Wow, seems like a long way away....are they wanting to finish building in this phase first? I have bought 3 new homes from builders and they have released phases well before the first one is finished? Seems strange to wait over a year to release the next one. Also, I was told Starlane is the same builder as Greenpark when I called to enquire. Are they one in the same or different? And are there any other builders at this site or just those two? Thanks again for the info on the pricing!

Starlane and Greenpark are owned by the same family, they are the only builders in this phase. They could very well release the second phase a little earlier than late next year, never know. You can always snoop around on the city of Hamilton website, you can usually find notices here of when a developer/builder has applied for lands/permits/etc for a new development.

Hi Want to Be Newbie,

You can email me at tara.wilkins@td.com. TD is the Mortgage Specialist on site, and I have all the floorplans for the Starlane and Green park homes in this development. Send me an email, and I can forward them all to you to look at.

Tara

I am sure all of you have gone and snooped at the progress of your home, and understand other people have gone into someone else's home to have a peek, but last night was the best! I went into my home and some guy was in there and said that he bought it! I told him that was impossible but he was adamant that he and his friend had purchased the home on my lot and he was checking out what he had bought, crazy! and kind of creepy....
He either was crazy or felt he had to come up with this story to justify why he was snooping around.

Hi LAG,
That is seriously CRAZY. Why would someone lie when they got caught? I dont think it is a big deal to look around at the other floor plans. I think it is fun to see what people picked out for their homes - I am the girl who walks in the backyards and peaks in to see what kitchens everyone has! I love it, it is my favorite Sunday walk!

But to lie! wow, people are amazing!

Hi Tara,
I know! it doesn't bother me at all, infact on 4 separate occasions I have gone to my house and someone has been in there. Nothing wrong with a little bit of snooping! I just hope that is all he was doing, I have seen his van around the subdivision almost everytime I have been there, mostly parked in one of my neighbours driveways and know he is not one of the homeowners/workers. Would hate to find out he is taking stuff, my house is being tiled right now and there are a few boxes lying around.....
