Our team at dg & associates is so excited to be a part of The Westerly at Fairwinds! We had the pleasure of hosting the inaugural event along with the Fairwinds Community and Seacliff Properties to celebrate the time-honoured structural completion of The Westerly. A great turn out and fun was had by all in the beautiful marina side setting to celebrate. Attendees learned about this new masterfully executed residential community, the Fairwinds lifestyle and signed the commemorative plaque that will become a permanent fixture in the finished building.
