Legacy Summer 2020 Construction Update

As construction ramps up for the summer months, we’re seeing how Thorold’s master-planned Legacy community is growing. Browse our photos for an aerial sneak peek of all the activity happening at Legacy this summer.


Construction in phase one is complete and ready for Legacy families to move into. With most of the curbs, sidewalk and sodding in the neighbourhood wrapped up, the topcoat of the roads and driveways are underway and will be finished later this summer.



We started to close homes in this phase back in March with over 30 new families calling Legacy home. Most homes in this phase are being framed and some are a little further along with exterior cladding taking place.



Phase 3 began construction in early March, with several of the homes having their foundations poured. Homes that are a little further along are being framed and mechanical, plumbing and electrical rough-ins have started.


Empire Legacy offers the perfect backdrop as you plant your roots and grow your family. As the community continues to welcome new homeowners, we invite you to browse our selection of available new and move-in ready detached homes today to find the home that’s right for you.


In light of the recent events and escalating concerns surrounding the COVID-19 situation, Empire is taking extra precautions for the health and safety of our team members, homeowners, customers and vendor/trade partners. As of today, our construction sites remain open, but we are doing our part to maintain social distancing through modified scheduling and staffing. We are diligently monitoring the situation and will provide further updates as they become available and as they pertain to your closing date. We thank you for your understanding and wish you and your loved ones health and safety in this uncertain time.
