thornhill woodsJuly 14 2016 – Vaughan, ON – Residents of Thornhill Woods will soon get a few new neighbours moving in as the City of Vaughan has approved a zoning by-law amendment for the westernmost part of land owned by the Toronto Waldorf School. The entrance for this development will be the northern continuation of Bathurst Glen Drive where a dead end currently exists.

Homeowners of both Serene Way and Dewpoint Road will inevitably see the green space that they now back onto turned into 45 detached homes, most of which will consist of 25-35 foot frontage and of varying depths ranging from 100 ft to 130 ft, with few pie shaped corner lots as deep as 180 ft.

It’s unclear if and when the development will be completed or if any changes to the current application will be made but it’s safe to say that homes will soon be built on this location. See below for site map.
