Welcome to West 5
Hi, I’m Richard Sifton and I’m President of Sifton Properties. You know, Sifton has been building London for almost 100 years, but I can honestly say that I’m about to introduce you to our most innovative and leading edge community ever. Meet West5, a revolutionary new experiential lifestyle destination in London, Ontario. It will be a place to work, shop, live, play and get inspired – a place where you can just feel the energy. We’re going beyond just building a community; we’re shaping the future of how communities are made.
Over the next 10 years, I’ll be working to bring this exciting new leading edge community to fruition. So what makes it so revolutionary? Glad you asked! One of the main parts of my vision is to strive for a sustainable and 100% energy efficient community. Net Zero office buildings, solar and green rooftops, solar powered streetlights, electric car charging stations and rainwater harvesting are just a few of the leading edge features at West 5.
West 5 will also be a mixed-use community, there will be design forward retail and office spaces, modern new townhomes, condos, apartments and retirement residences. At the heart of West 5 there is a vibrant Central Park full of art and culture, so you can take a break during the day to enjoy yourself. In short, my vision for West 5 is to be a destination and it will have everything to make your life more connected and amazing.
Sifton has a long history of community involvement, West 5 is no different, and as we’re shaping this landmark community we’d love to have your input. The idea generator is your chance to let my team and I know your thoughts on our vision for West5, and believe me, we’d love to hear them!
West 5 is going to be one of the first communities of its kind. It’s going to change Canada, and London is leading the way. We’re embarking on an exciting journey, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you here on the West 5 blog.
