Community Update - The Crossing


Here is a glimpse at the exciting developments taking place in our community, which include the construction of a new 83 Unit Apartment Buildings, Garden Homes, and more!

Over the past few years, The Crossing has experienced significant demand and growth. We have continued to safely grow and expand in 2022. We now have over 600 residents and in response to demand have introduced new streets and housing options.

Here are the highlights, as of June, 2022.

Manufactured Homes

For the past 11 years, people have had the ability to purchase manufactured homes from Prestige Homes to be placed in the land lease section of The Crossing (Irven Drive, Merriweather Crescent, Annie May Court, and Goosie Loop on the map below). Our mini home division of The Crossing is now full. 

Custom Built Semi-Detached Homes

Custom built semi-detached homes on Edward Drive (where residents who purchase own both their home and land) are being constructed as quickly as possible to keep up with demand. Edward Drive is now fully built. On rare occasion a home odes come available via private sale.

New Streets – Elizabeth Avenue & Community Way

Custom built detached one-level homes from the Valley Garden Home Collection and semi-detached homes are now available on Elizabeth Avenue and Community Way, our newest streets. Those who move to Elizabeth Avenue will enjoy stunning views of our apple orchard, blueberry bushes, and duck pond. There are 12 lots available for Garden Homes with 17 Gardens home now built and occupied.

The Valley Garden Home Collection

The Valley Garden Home Collection caters to empty nesters and retirees, and presently features 8 one-level home designs that are available in several communities throughout the Annapolis Valley – including The Crossing. You can learn more about the Valley Garden Home Collection and view renderings/floorplans here:  

Ongoing Construction

Development has started on the newest section of The Crossing, on lands that extend beyond the existing community, creating new streets that will connect with Payzant Drive in the former town of Windsor. These streets, when completed, will provide an additional 79 lots for detached and semi-detached homes in our community.

Apartment Buildings

Provisions are currently being made for four 83-unit apartment buildings, which will be located at the top of the hill beyond Elizabeth Avenue and Community Way. Details on apartment sizes, features, pricing and timing will follow by the end of this year (2022).

As we continue to grow, we would like to acknowledge the hard work and support of all staff, tradespeople, and the critical role of New Valley Homes Inc. We would also like to thank our existing residents – as their continued support and positive endorsements make this all possible!

These are exciting and busy times at The Crossing, and we look forward to continuing on this journey. Stay tuned for future updates!
