Watercolour Westport

Walkable. Connected.

Living in Westport, Ontario

Your neighbourhood, the place you call home makes a profound impact on the way you work, live, relax and interact with others. Watercolour Westport wants to build something new for you and the generations to come. The streets, amenities, public spaces and parks with a balance of homes and business will set a new standard for quality of life, economic growth and environmental stewardship.

The time has come for you to be part of a harmonious place surrounded by natural beauty and an opportunity for a healthy lifestyle. A place where community will come to life with something for everyone.

Compelling VISION

By integrating parks with walking trails, fitness stations and gardens Watercolour Westport will be a neighbourhood where you will find a place to belong. Boutiques, businesses and restaurants await in Westport which are all within a pleasant one kilometre walk. Your new neighbourhood will include homes of varying sizes and types, catering to all different ages and stages of life.

Watercolour Westport is about feeling a renewed mind, a restored soul, truly relaxed, full of vitality and direction, peace and joy. It’s about living intentionally, discovering a new sense of awe and wonder in creation, and gaining clarity in a community that balances nature with neighbourhood.

Genuine COMMUNITY

Watercolour Westport’s founder, Stephen Rolston of Land Ark Developments, wants to invest in Westport, a supernatural town that is economically viable, environmentally sensitive, and extraordinarily creative.

The longing we share is simple: to belong and be a part of creating a walkable and connected neighbourhood that will enchant people, foster a strong sense of community, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Watercolour has been developed around the walkable pedestrian-friendly tenets of Traditional Neighbourhood Design (TND) made famous by Andrés Duany and his architectural firm DPZ and the association he helped found, Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) and the book he wrote The Smart Growth Manual.

Sustainable LIVING

Embrace the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy. Living in a home that upholds the highest standards for environmental
stewardship and sustainability. Every step of our building process and every decision keeps both the present and future in mind. A place you will be proud to call home.

Watercolour Westport will implement green building practices in the creation of energy efficient homes in Eastern Ontario with the latest technology and feature the best collection of “Light Imprint New Urbanism” storm water management systems.

Our community will be walkable. Many families will thrive with one car making a positive contribution to the environment.
Traditional Neighbourhood Design promotes more walking and less driving. Cars are essential but with all daily needs within a
one kilometer walkable radius, you can say good bye to the tedious commutes.

Local IMPACT

Geographically remarkable and historically protected, Westport is a place of significance. At the headwater of two freshwater lakes and part of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere, the beauty that surrounds the village has an immeasurable value for generations to come. In that light, Land Ark Homes has partnered with the village and its community leaders to thoughtfully plan the addition of the community of Watercolour.

The future of the village of Westport will unfold the plans over a significant period of time, the disruptions and changes will require patience, and the continued care for the village and its residents will lay on the shoulders of the leaders of today and those yet to come.
