Appleby Gardens by LJM Developments has hit the proverbial nail on the head when it comes to offering an option for those new homeowners that want a liveable and walkable neighbourhood. These luxury residences are being built on Appleby Line in Burlington in a growing neighbourhood that offers all the amenities you come to expect nearby. Living locally is a movement that is growing in importance across the globe, even in smaller towns, not just metropolises. People want to be able to leave the car at home and, walk, jog, cycle or transit to nearby amenities in order to do their part for the environment and spend less time in a car. LJM Developments help make that possible with their building designs as well. Living Locally This entire movement has stemmed from a dual effort to get people to recognize the beauty and importance of their local communities. One half of the effort came out of small businesses across North America promoting themselves as the answer to urban sprawl and big power centers. Instead of driving 30 minutes to the nearest big box store, small local businesses offer many of the same goods right next door. As small businesses employ upwards of 80% of all employees in North America it also makes sense for consumers to continue to support these smaller enterprises. Saving 10-20% on an item, but driving 20-40 kms to get it, wasting gas and an hour of your time, seems less worth it, if the same option is a two-minute walk from home. The second half of the dual effort of course comes from the green movement and encourages everyone to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels as much as possible. Living locally, enjoying the amenities close to you including parks, shopping, community activities within mass transit, walking or cycling offers this opportunity for everyone to do their part to fight climate change and its harmful effects. LJM accepts this challenge with every new build.
