Our Commitment

The Caydon Lifestyle

Caydon carefully selects locations that provide the best everyday life experiences a city can offer. The sites are positioned in established neighborhoods close to Downtown and always boast a wealth of recreational opportunities. These include great food, wine and coffee to share with friends, lots of shopping, leisure options and accessible, frequent public transport. Caydon's developments also provide a high level of exclusive amenity for relaxation and enjoyment. The designated commercial spaces bring more retail and restaurant/cafe options into the area and care is taken to complement; not compete with existing businesses. Every Caydon project is an investment in the well-being of residents and the surrounding community.
