Greenbilt Homes is Building The FlexPlex®

Why FlexPlex®?

FlexPlex® is a next generation residence. It flexes quickly and easily from one housing type to another through its unique design. Greenbilt has perfected the FlexPlex® home through hundreds of hours in design and planning, working with architects and engineers.

FlexPlex® makes new home ownership financially possible and it can continually change with your changing needs. Go from a rental model supporting your initial purchase to a Single-family home for kids and grandparents, and then back to the rental model to age in place. And your FlexPlex® is covered by the Seven-year new home Tarion Warranty.

FlexPlex® homes fit beautifully into suburban Single-family neighborhoods as well as urban locations. They look like large Single-family homes from the street. With four exterior walls and lots of natural light, you enjoy all the benefits of Single-family detached living.

You’ll see how housing is made affordable through our “flex” housing solution. Prospect owners can come see this exciting new housing form. We invite to you tour the new FlexPlex® Greenbilt is currently building in Etobicoke.

Multi-generational Living

interaction or privacy in the house to make Multi-generational living comfortable for everyone

Facilitating Co-ownership

By making Co-living easy, you can pool your resources for a down payment and mortgage payments.

Rental Model

You decide how much of the building you want to live in, how much you want rent out, and what kind of rental accommodation you want to Offer–anything from a duplex up to three 2-bedrooms.

You can generate rental income as a “mortgage helper” or produce passive income to support your lifestyle, especially in retirement.

Multi-generational Model

Create as much interaction or privacy in the house to make Multi-generational living comfortable for everyone. You can have a traditional interactive Single-family home with up to four kitchens. Or, if privacy and independence is important, your Multi-generational home can have separate units for each family group.

Every bedroom has a private bathroom. Every floor has its own independent heating, cooling and electrical system. Every floor has exceptional soundproofing. Reconfiguring the home as family members come and go you is easy because everything to do it is built into the walls.

Co-ownership Model

Individuals can have their own customizable units, with each floor having its own kitchen, independent utilities, and soundproofing. Each bedroom includes its own bathroom, and the small condominium/Co-op structure allows for easy selling while others remain.

Housing Cooperatives are popular in cities like New York and provide a better home at a better price by pooling financial resources. Co-operative residents in Toronto reportedly have the highest quality of life and housing satisfaction.

Perfect Lifecycle Home

Unlike a traditional Single-family home, the FlexPlex® gives you almost unlimited flexibility to keep changing the building as your needs change. It’s the perfect lifecycle home.

Renovation of an existing structure can be very expensive and time consuming. FlexPlex® makes it quick and easy by building the capacity for future changes right into the structure.
