We Believe in Community First

 

Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of what really matters in life. We believe the people around us matter the most, we believe in community first. We like helping others. We like reaching out, hosting social engagements, doing community service, or even just hosting a fruit crumble competition (we’re pretty proud of that last one).

“Community is a sign that love is possible in a materialistic world where people so often either ignore or fight each other. It is a sign that we don’t need a lot of money to be happy–in fact, the opposite.” 
― Jean VanierCommunity And Growth

 

An Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Condominium in Regina?

At Prairie Spruce Commons we believe in building environmentally and socially sustainable condominiums in Regina. Environmentally, this starts with the building; solar panels on the roof, grey water ready, design to optimize natural light, in floor heating and cooling and gardens on several roof tops. The building is designed for the future. Minimizing the impact of housing over the next 50 years costs more up front but with this investment into your home, you can save a lot of money over the long run on utilities and upkeep. Plus, you can sleep soundly at night knowing you’re making Regina just a little bit better.

Prairie Spruce Commons is socially sustainable because we’re centred around the concept of community. Sharing with others, caring for others and being respectful of the people around us. Being a part of a community is healthy for the mind body and soul. Humans needs community to feel good, to feel like they’re a part of something, to feel needed. At Prairie Spruce we’re all a part of a special team that makes the living space that much better.

How many condominium developments actually encourage a sustainable development in Regina? Not enough! When it comes to building large structures in your city, you have to look at he sustainability of them and what the impact on the environment will be over time. The more sustainable condominiums in Regina the better.
