Q: What is the story behind Greystone?
Since 1995, Greystone has specialized in commercial, institutional, and multi-residential construction. About 15 years ago, we saw the need for multi-unit residential buildings in Muskoka, offering residents amenities such as underground parking, party rooms, and walking trails. Since then, we have launched our forward-thinking community condominium projects, while continuing to construct many of Muskoka’s most prominent buildings. This projects include car dealerships, fire halls, and many of the newer structures along Main St. in Huntsville
Q: What is your connection to the Huntsville community and the Muskoka region?
We are fully entrenched in our community. Our offices are here, our team members are from Muskoka, and we place a heavy emphasis on giving back to our community through the donations we make to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation (in addition to other notable causes such as youth sports, and more). Our people-centric culture is inspired by our care for the citizens of Muskoka, and our designs are deeply rooted in the inspiration we draw from the beauty of our natural surroundings throughout the Muskoka region.
Q: What types of projects does the company specialize in?
Greystone specializes in large-scale commercial and multi-unit residential developments. Campus Trails is our latest development in Huntsville, driven by our vision of designing and building a contemporary community connected to nature, boasting all the amenities you would expect to find in modern condominiums, surrounded by natural forest (with views of Fairy Lake beyond). Construction at Campus Trails is well underway, with Phase 1 completed and the completion of Phase 2 on the horizon.
Q: Greystone’s vision is to become the leading builder in central Ontario, a local community investor and employer of choice. What sets you apart from other custom builders in the Muskoka region?

Our integrated team of engineers, project managers, and skilled employees are “on the job,” from start to completion of every project – and we aren’t scared of scale. We have the resources to complete large commercial and residential projects, which balance community + environmental considerations, with the quality required for a building to last for many generations.

Q: Can you tell us about what community means to you?
Greystone’s sense of community comes from the pride we take in being part of something bigger than ourselves.
