New housing development coming to Dresden

The DeMall Group has announced Rolling Acres, a new housing development coming to Chatham-Kent.

This latest project from the DeMall Group, which is made up of Krista and Kerry Mall and Kim and Dave Depencier, kicked off on Friday at an open house in Dresden with the support of Mayor Darrin Canniff, members of council, MPP Monte McNaughton and Chatham-Kent Economic Development and Tourism Services.

Municipal officials say Rolling Acres is a new subdivision coming to Dresden made up of custom-built homes designed for those looking for life in a charming, safe, and quiet community with easy access to great amenities and no commute times. Dresden is a short drive to Chatham, and close to Sarnia, London and Windsor.

“I grew up in Dresden, and I love to be able to have a hand in building up the town that raised me,” said Dave Depencier, President of the DeMall Group, in a media release.

“I’ve been a custom home builder for 25 years and chose to develop subdivisions within my own small community. I’m proud to be part of the growth happening right here in my own backyard.”

The first phase consists of the construction of 41 homes, including 24 semi-detached and 17 detached bungalow-style homes.

For the proposed second phase, the group has the goal of adding a community park directly next to the development, with scenic walking trails, outdoor squash courts, play equipment, and more.

“I’m an immigrant to Canada; I had a lot of choices when I was considering a place to reside,” said Kerry Mall, Treasurer of the DeMall Group, in a media releas.

“I found a place to call home in Dresden and love everything about it. The community has been extremely welcoming; it’s a small town with so much to offer.”

“We grew up here and we’ve also chosen to raise our family here. My children went to the same public and high school that I did,” said Kim Depencier, Marketing Director of the DeMall Group, in a media release.

“Dresden has so much to offer for young families in terms of sports and activities, along with the safety of a small town.”

“It’s investments like this that show growth is happening all over Chatham-Kent. Developers know that choosing CK for their projects is an investment in an expanding community, one that’s on the rise,” said Mayor Darrin Canniff, in a press release.

“Chatham-Kent’s communities have so much to offer, and their reputations as great places to live, work, and invest are reaching a wider audience.”

The DeMall Group was established by two families who are active community members of Dresden: the Depencier family and the Mall family.

Their goal is to build quality homes while also giving back to Dresden by building flourishing communities that help the town’s local economy, Municipal officials say.
