When: Built circa 1984?
Where: Flamingo Crescent (parts), Finsbury Drive (parts)
Who: Kingsway Homes
What I Know: According to the 1969 Master Plan, this land was “owned by others”, but zoned for single-family residential.
This in-fill area is the newest part of the F-Section, most of which was built in the 1960s and 1970s, with the exception of Finchgate Estates built in 1982.
As is common with smaller builders, the designs in this area are based on popular floor plans built by larger builders – including the back-split plans that are nearly identical to Darcel Homes’ plans from Blue Mount Estates. There is an impressive and unusual mix of designs in this community, including semi-detached, narrow detached and various types and sizes of wider detached plans. The Lancaster side-split plan is in a style common to 1960s-era developments, so it is interesting to see such a design as late as the 1980s.
