In pursuing LEED Gold certification for their new residential development The Vanguard, Devron Developments continues to position itself as one of the GTA’s most sustainable builders. That reputation will be burnished even further in November, as Devron becomes the first developer in Canada to give away a brand new Tesla Model X. The giveaway is part of an overall campaign to raise awareness around The Vanguard, as well as the often-overlooked role developers play in the move towards more sustainable modes of transportation.
“One of the greatest responsibilities we have as developers is to ensure that the design and features we introduce in our projects reflect our values for the future,” says Devron CEO Pouyan Safapour. “A denser urban environment encourages a more walkable, transit-orientated lifestyle. With that said, some people still need their own car. By providing Tesla Destination Chargers and EV charging stations in the building, we are enabling our purchasers to make a more sustainable choice when it comes to their vehicles.”
Not wanting to wait for the construction of The Vanguard to be complete before introducing Tesla Destination Chargers into the Grandview neighbourhood, Devron introduced four publically available Tesla Destination Chargers at their presentation centre
“Not only will the chargers add great value for our residents who embrace electric vehicles, but Tesla’s commitment to quality, future mindedness and its leadership in sustainability are traits that we admire and share,” said Safapour, who has a background in structural engineering and sustainable design. “That’s why we took the extra step of integrating the chargers into our sales experience as well.”
Charging stations are just one of a handful of innovative sustainable features found throughout the project. The Vanguard will include integrated indoor and outdoor green space which includes a 7,000-square-foot rooftop terrace. The exercise bikes in the fitness facility will feed electricity back into the main power grid and a centralized water filtration system at the source will only allow clean water to be enjoyed throughout the building.
Devron Developments recently launched The Vanguard Tesla Model X Giveaway. No purchase is required to enter this contest, regular walk-ins or interested purchasers who register and schedule a tour at The Vanguard Presentation Centre between now and November 3, 2016 will also be entered.
A winner will be drawn on November 5, 2016 at a public event hosted by Devron Developments at The Vanguard Presentation Sales Centre, located at 7089 Yonge Street, Toronto.
