When completed, Urban North will house over 1,700 families in townhomes and condominiums in the southern end of Barrie. Residents will enjoy convenient access to the GO Train, community park areas, and downtown attractions. Urban North’s proximity to Lake Simcoe and everything Barrie has to offer will make Urban North an attractive community for active professionals and families.

“We are proud to be part of such a great project – one that leverages green transpiration and heavily-forested trail pathed areas to create a family-friendly lifestyle community. ” said Gregory Zehr, CEO of MarshallZehr Group.

“I’d like to thank everybody who made this possible” said Dino Sciavilla, President of PACE Developments.
