Canada's second Peace Colony* is moving closer to the beginning of the construction phase. The planned community is on a stunning 90-acre riverfront parcel southwest of Niagara Falls.
In June a group of 31 people were welcomed to the site by Russell Guest, the project's developer, and the founding families. They attended a two-day 'Vedic Green' workshop to plan their Maharishi Vastu** homes on the site. They watched with great interest a new 3-D computer-generated video fly-over of the proposed master plan that brought the plan to life, highlighted the community's neighborhoods, and showed the purpose of each building.
Attendees also participated in a workshop on options for building their new homes in Maharishi Vedic Village with the very highest standard of non-toxic and natural construction materials.
Working with Mr. Guest, Maharishi Vastu architect Michael Chelnov has recently created a master plan for a community of 1,200 that offers a variety of living options—single-family homes, apartments, cottages, condominiums, and a full-service condo-hotel for seasonal and year-round members.
In addition, the site will incorporate a retail and tourist educational-entertainment center, schools, and a Maharishi Vedic Pandit campus. The condo-hotel will feature a Maharishi Ayurveda health spa and a large greenhouse conservatory that will allow for dining outside among trees and blooming plants in the middle of winter.
During a recent conference in the Netherlands, six Maharishi Vastu architects and a prominent developer reviewed the plan with Mr. Guest, giving their suggestions for further refinement of the master plan.
