The Thomas Gillbard Concept - Go Green

Mansions On George

The Thomas Gillbard School was originally built in 1906, although various additions have been constructed through the years, and sits on over 2.57 Acres of land in the heart of downtown Cobourg, a lovely town with a population of slightly over 19,000 people, on the shores of Lake Ontario. Around 60 Miles (100 kilometers) east from Toronto, Cobourg is a fine example of Victorian Architecture with one of the most nicest examples of a Victorian Town Hall in Canada. Victoria Hall is a gem to behold and is perhaps 50 yards from "Mansions on George". In turn, Victoria Hall is a few steps from Cobourg Harbour and Marina with it's many boat slips for residents & visitors alike." Mansions on George" Development will have extensive preservation of the historic architecture and enhanced landscaping.

The Development has the largest amount of Private Green space of any Condominium in Cobourg and Northumberland County.

Mansions Building Plan

Demolition & Construction commenced in the Summer of 2005 and the first part of the overll re-development of the Gilbard School is completed. This Condominium (Mansions on George) is Registered as a Corporation (NSCC#72) and will share and with MANSIONS ON JAMES some of the costs as they will have many Common elements, including Green Space and Roadways.

We hope you come to Cobourg and enjoy your Condominium for many years and, if you already live here, we hope you will enjoy your new location close to the Downtown and the Lake.
The Harbour has seen radical change in the last two decades moving from a functioning Port to a Tourist attraction with Condominiums being built in this area. Prices for many of these units, at the time of writing, range up to $895,000.00+ and Cobourg seems likely to be the Central Southern Ontario equivalent of Niagara on the Lake.

Externally, Open Parking and/or Garages is available to the residents on the Southern and Western side of the Property and the Green Space on George Street will be maintained and enhanced and New Green Space added on James Street. Ample Resident and Guest Parking has been provided.

The Thomas Gillbard School itself is an imposing Mansions on Georgestructure and it is a classic of it's day. The imposing Pillars on George Street, the architectural features over the side entrances, the height and size of the structure is a Victorian Architects dream. The original Roofline on Mansions on GEORGE has been amended, and restored, but the basic structure remains essentially as the original building above, with Energy Efficient Insulated Walls, Brand new Plumbing & Heat and Cooling Systems, Insulated Floors, Walls & Ceilings. Internally, Mansions on GEORGE generally has soaring Ceilings and very large New Low-E4TM Argon windows to let in the sunlight of your dreams.

The Gillbard School Playing Fields to the Rear and the West of the Main School will contain 36 suites. It faces onto James Street and shares the Roadway System and Green Space with Mansions on GEORGE of the "The Mansions on George DEVELOPMENT". We are tieing as many of the Architectural features of the old school together into Mansions on James although this building will be Four Stories high (Five with the Parking Garage) it's Roofline will be similar to the Gillbard School itself, The Town of Cobourg is very concerned about Sightlines and Architectural features so as not to intrude on the everlasting Victorian look of the Town.

MANSIONS ON JAMES SUITES consist, in the main, of 1300 -1500 Square feet of accommodation with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, Living Room/Dining Area and most will have a Balcony. These Homes will continue the High Energy Efficiencies of Mansions on GEORGE making the Development probably the most "Green" Condominium in Ontario. Occupancy of these MANSIONS ON JAMES Units will be for the Winter of 2018.
