Inspiration in Sustainable Buildings

Our restored and renovated Chart House will meet the highest standard for sustainable building design in the world.

Maitland Tower is a registered Living Community Challenge project. The Chart House is a registered Living Building Challenge project, and we hope it will be a beacon of inspiration for transforming the built environment in Eastern Ontario and beyond.

Restoration of Community Landmark

The Maitland Tower represents 200+ years of history in the area. We are restoring the masonry to ensure it will remain part of our local landscape for decades and hopefully centuries to come.

Advocate for local, healthy food for all

A truly sustainable, healthy community is one where everyone has access to fresh, local food. Demand at local food banks has increased in recent months due to the pandemic, and we, like so many, want to help.

This year we are supporting the Grow-A-Row campaign, where everyone is invited to plant a few extra seedlings or sow a few extra seeds, and donate the harvest to your local food bank.

We have put in about 2000 square feet of new vegetable garden space, and we look forward to donating all of our harvest to support our local food banks.
