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.”
