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.
