Windsor NS May 25 2016, Sales consultants from The Crossing, Atlantic Canada’s premier lifestyle community attended the Seniors Health and Wellness Expo hosted at the Royal Canadian Legion in Windsor NS. The event was coordinated by the Hants County Senior Safety Association providing a venue for local area seniors and 52 vendors to get together with a complimentary lunch included.
Attended by several hundred senior residents the event provided an opportunity for the attending suppliers to present their services. The gathering also provided seniors with a single point of access to view and check out the options available for their market needs.
When asked about The Crossing’s participation at the show, Betty Crockett commented, “It’s a really good opportunity for us to meet and talk with residents in the area about their requirements for residential housing. Our community at The Crossing is focused on providing service for people that are at or near-retirement. Since this event is also focused on the senior segment, it is a really good fit for the services and homes that we provide through Brison Developments. More than anything else we sincerely enjoy getting to talk with the people here to see how our homes and service can assist them as they enter an exciting and new chapter in their lives. ”
Owner Mitchell Brison stopped by to see how the show was progressing. He was able to provide us with an outline of the plans for the community. “The Crossing” was introduced as a premier retirement and lifestyle community 6 years ago. When we started this project it was implemented with a vision and a plan to be recognized as leaders in our region’s retired and semi-retired residential home market. Our results to date show that we’ve been successful in doing that.”
The Crossing is recognized as Atlantic Canada’s premier lifestyle community and is located in Garlands Crossing just outside off Windsor NS. With approximately 200 residents presently living at The Crossing its needs are ever changing.
In looking to the future Mr. Brison added “The future expansion of our community is a very exciting aspect of our development. We’ve just completed the construction of four R-2 Semi-detached units. 3 were sold before completion and new units are being constructed as we speak. We also have longer-term plans for the inclusion of 4-plex units plus two 48-unit apartment buildings. Our new units are intended to provide additional options for residents who wish to downsize and reduce the demands on their time for home maintenance while still remaining in our community.”

The Crossing, Atlantic Canada’s premier lifestyle community highlights some pictures of the nature that can be found along its walking trails. The sounds of the many different birds chirping along with the squirrels provides a brief glimpse into the active yet peaceful environment that exists among the residents.
The Crossing was introduced to the market in 2009. Since that time it has grown to become one off the premier lifestyle communities in Atlantic Canada for those at or approaching retirement. Pet friendly with walking trails, local vegetable gardens and social neighbors, it is an ideal location for those seeking a relaxed yet active and peaceful living environment.
When speaking with existing residents you will find they moved to The Crossing for different reasons. For some it was for the purpose of downsizing the physical demands of their family home. For others it was to optimize their financial position. Living at The Crossing has provided some residents with the option and opportunity to reduce the annual expense of home maintenance while also reducing their capital holding in their existing home. These are just a few of the many reasons The Crossing is considered to be Atlantic Canada’s premier lifestyle community.

As was recently reported in the Globe and Mail in January, the demand for retirement lifestyle communities is poised to increase. Most of the growth will come from those approaching semi-retirement as they seek less demanding lifestyles. While presently 1 in 6 Canadians is over the age of 65, it is projected that 1 in 4 will fit that profile by 2036.
The Crossing, introduced a new television commercial earlier this month appealing to the retirement market in promoting its development as “The Valley’s Premier Lifestyle Community”. With a focus on well planned retirement communities designed by Brison Developments, The Crossing is fast becoming the one of the most sought after communities for retirees living in Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada.
