While the Island is green year round, spring gardens burst into bloom earlier here than anywhere else in Canada! With large yards at The Ridge subdivision, gardeners can plant flowers, shrubs and trees to their heart’s content. Design your landscaping to showcase year-round colour, and still make it as low maintenance as you wish.
The Ridge community has 20 new homes under construction in Phase I and preparing lots for Phase II. With new residents already enjoying their spacious properties, contact us to learn more about building your new custom home at The Ridge.

With an aging population on Vancouver Island, health care is a major concern for residents and for those considering retiring to the Island. The Comox Valley is well-positioned to care for an aging population, thanks in part to the ongoing North Island Hospital Project, which is managing the construction of the new Comox Valley Hospital.
Replacing St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox, the new hospital now under construction in Courtenay will offer expanded services in a modern setting, and serve residents of the Comox Valley and the North Island. The new hospital is expected to be completed in the fall of 2017.
Access to important services such as health care has been a significant draw for residents retiring to the Comox Valley and Courtenay. The Comox Valley also features a variety of retail, recreational and cultural amenities.
New home developments like The Ridge are able to offer additional benefits that appeal to many baby boomers, including zoning for Carriage Homes or secondary suites for extended family, in-laws or adult children.
With new custom homes starting at $430,000 (including lot and landscaping) building a new home at the Ridge can offer an affordable lifestyle that can be difficult to maintain in larger urban centres.
