When DiGreen Homes and Digram Developments Inc. build communities, they aim to make them unique, President Abubakar Masood says. “We want to build a nicer product instead of the cookie-cutter products,” he says. “If my customers are going to pay a specific amount of money, I better give them a bang for their buck,” Masood says. “I want them to get something that myself and they are proud of.”
Digreen Homes marked the opening of its Residences of 16th Avenue sales office with a ribbon cutting and groundbreaking ceremony. Mayor Frank Scarpitti was guest of honour. Also in attendance were Councillors Alan Ho, Alex Chiu and Amanda Collucci as well as City of Markham staff Ronji Borooah, Kathy Jeffery, and Michael Lafete. The Consul General of Pakistan Mr. Ashgar Ali Golo, and Mr. U.L.M. Jauhar, Consul General of Sri Lanka were present to show support for the third generation builder, as were other important Digreen business partners. The new development consists of 42 townhouse units and is located near Markham Road and 16th Avenue.
It may seem like a small thing, but the fact of the matter is that the example speaks volumes about the kind of sustainable strategies practiced by Digram Developments Inc. Along with its building division, Digreen Homes, Digram pays particular attention to any environmental impact for each and every one of its projects.
