In 1972 Lou began thinking about making it possible for his guests to become year round residents. The approval and design process took an enormous amount of time and energy, but in 1985, the community of Green Briar was founded at the eastern end of the property along with an 18 hole golf course. Green Briar was an instant success and recognized as Canada’s first adult lifestyle community in a genuine resort setting. Over an 11 year period, 497 homes were meticulously constructed at Green Briar, as people recognized the uncompromising quality and outstanding value.
During this time, Lou’s sons and nephew also joined the family business, bringing with them the same amount of energy and thoughtfulness that made the business so successful. The result is a truly remarkable team that has created an elegant community that embodies sound management principles, astute planning and a commitment to uncompromising quality.
