Professor’s Lake – Greenpark

When: built circa 1979-1980.

Where: Pepperwood Place (parts), Poinsettia Place, Princeton Terrace, Pottery Crescent, Professor’s Lake Parkway (parts), Panorama Crescent, Premier Place, Pacific Lane.

Who: Greenpark Homes.

What I Know: The houses built in this area are an excellent example of the types of designs which were popular at the cusp of the 1980s. Backsplit and raised bungalow designs were commonly built in Bramalea up until the early 1980s, when they started to disappear from the models offered by new house builders. Greenpark Homes built quite a few of such designs in this community, yet subsequent phases around Professor’s Lake had predominantly 2-storey designs.

Even though this was the first neighbouhood built in the P-Section, none of the Greenpark-built houses actually back on to Professor’s Lake. Lakefront houses were built in later phases by Lakeview Homes, Bramalea Limited and Aspen Ridge Homes.
