How and where consumers choose to live is about to undergo a dramatic shift. Westman Village, the new 5.5-hectare, multi-faceted development within Mahogany will offer discerning consumers anything and everything they could hope for. Whether a condominium, an estate home seniors living and retirement or leasing, there is something for everyone here. And the heart of the game-changing development, the $25-million Village Centre, recently celebrated its completion with a grand opening party. The 40,000-sq.-ft. centre features a wine cellar, arts and crafts centre, fitness, spin and hot yoga facilities, woodworking room, two swimming pools, movie theatre, party room, running track and half-court gymnasium. Oh, and don’t forget the indoor garden, library, terrace, billiards room, steam room and two-storey waterslide.

More than 500 guests attended the awesome opening on Dec. 6. Chef-attended stations, Aqualillies performing in the pools, a killer band in the gym, painting demonstrations, guitarist Aaron Young, Lisa Longball golf demonstrations, scotch bar samplings, piano players and woodworking demonstrations were but a few of the evening’s eye-popping offerings. 

Host with the most, Jayman Built chairman and CEO Jay Westman gave a heartfelt welcome to all as guests raised their glasses and toasted the opening of Village Centre. Who was not in attendance would make a much shorter list as the who is who in business, politics and the homes industry attended including: Marg Southern; Ann McCaig; RBC’s Jeff Boyd; Bill Smith; councillors Sean Chu and Joe Magliocca; Ross Glen; Carol Oxtoby; Michelle Cameron Coulter and her husband Al Coulter; Diana Joseph and her husband Ken; Wade Schultz; Don Dessario; Bryan Pinney and Steacy Collyer; Norm Bogner; Lance Hurtubise; Dan MacPhee; Vince Wong; Ryan Turbide; Richard Heine; Wayne Benz; Bob and Cole Harris; R.D. Hubbard; Dennis Aucoin; Wallace Chow; Nicole Westman Jones; Westman’s proud wife Karen; and uber event producers Advance Your Cause’s Tom Dodd and Samantha Morahan, who ensured the opening bash was a huge hit.
