Back in 1958 Coughlan Homes founder Jerry Coughlan received a small loan from his mother to launch a real-estate development company called Coughlan Homes. From the get-go our company’s approach to development has been to follow the “urban boundary.” Jerry built his first house in East York and the company has been moving East ever since as the GTA has inexorably expanded: First, to Scarborough, then Pickering, and now Ajax.
From the beginning of his career, Jerry established a reputation for building a quality product and fostering a corporate culture that focused on customer service and a keen attention to detail. As the great architect Mies van der Rohe once famously said, “God is in the details,” and at Coughlan, we couldn’t agree more.
A few years ago, the torch was passed to the next generation of Coughlans when Jerry’s four daughters assumed leadership of the company, and working with their management team, led by CEO Scott Collins, have shepherded the company to renewed success. Presently the company is completing Phase Three of its highly admired Duffin’s Village project in North Ajax and is building Forestview Estates in nearby Whitby.
Among our founder Jerry Coughlan’s passions was golf, and during his tenure the company developed outstanding golf courses: Glen Cedars Golf Club in Pickering and the Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility, with its Salem Ridge Golf Academy, in Ajax. They remain key elements in our company’s real-estate portfolio. Deer Creek’s 40,000 square foot banquet facility is the Durham Region’s state-of-the-art event space.
Coughlan Homes’ newest real-estate development is Stonebury Gates and it will incorporate the same uncompromising quality, innovative design and exceptional craftsmanship that have characterized all the company’s real-estate projects for the last fifty-eight years.
The shovel’s not in the ground, yet, but Coughlan is already very proud of Stonebury Gates.
