Since about two years, Habitations Trigone begun to introduce virtual communities in some projects. What do we mean by community? It is a free access to a custom website that allows you to have access to all the news of the project and to connect with your neighbours. Whether it is classified ads, car sharing or the activities planned on the project, everything is available on your mobile, tablet or computer. The aim is to create a friendly climate where people can exchange and share as neighbours. The administrators of this exclusive platform are members of the syndicate of co-ownership or of the administration of the building (rental). So, the activity of the platform is at the discretion of the members.
Of course, the important documentation is on the site as well as the messages of general interest. The information to know on the district, the city and the planned events are also included. The project installations allow to meet for a “picnic in the courtyard” or a “pool party ” for example! There is a multitude of advantages to have access to this site, we think of various trainings, walking or running group, co-working, yoga session etc. As soon as the owner or the tenant subscribes to the community of his project, he can publish classified ads, consult breaking news, download the important documentation, see the events or even schedule his car sharing with a neighbor.
With an incomparable network nearby, who would not like to take advantage of it? Many benefits come from a project community, let’s compare with cooperatives developed almost everywhere in the world. First thing, the proximity often wins over other options when it is time to choose a product or a service. For example, if a co-owner wishes to do car sharing, it is more practical and advantageous to make it from his own building rather than taking traditional public transportation. Or if the lady above your unit sells her washer-dryers and this offer is comparable to Kijiji, the choice is simple. Then, breaking the ice by having conversations with our neighbours allows to develop a feeling of comfort and membership in the project / district we live in.
