We make the difference

Our team has one common goal: support and guide our students through their Envie journey and help them enjoy their student years to the fullest.

The Ashcroft Difference

ASHCROFT HOMES is recognized as one of Ottawa’s most innovative and accomplished builders. Since 1992, the company has built thousands of homes in and around the city; from master planned communities including Central Park at the Experimental Farm, to infill townhome neighbourhoods like Manhattan Square at Bell’s Corners, to cosmopolitan condominiums in desirable urban settings like Byward Market, The Glebe or Westboro. Every Ashcroft home is built to the highest standards of quality, distinguished by architectural intelligence and designed with style and flair.

Our quality

It starts with the idea of community. We are passionate in creating a safe and modern environment for students, using the highest caliber of materials and offering exceptional on site amenities.

Our philosophy

There is a profound difference between building a student residence and building a community. We believe providing a place to call home and an engaging lifestyle help to build the world of tomorrow.

Our history

Ashcroft Homes began at the hands of David Choo, an engineer by trade and an innovator at heart. Since being founded in 1992, Ashcroft Homes has grown, now including the subsidiary brands of Alavida Lifestyles senior residences and the newly built Envie student residence.

Our Founder

It’s about a lifestyle…

DAVID CHOO is the visionary entrepreneur behind the 23- year success of Ottawa’s Ashcroft Homes, a trusted developer of communities for every stage of life. As an alumni of Carleton University, David understands what students need. He delivers a complete living experience, from Envie student living; to family communities such as Ottawa’s top neighbourhood Central Park; to Alavida Lifestyles, full- spectrum retirement communities.
