Rohit Communities Sponsors the Mental Health Foundation

Rohit Communities Sponsors the Mental Health Foundation

May 28, 2010  – For the Rohit Group of Companies, and the Gupta family, giving back to the community is a heart-felt belief deeply rooted in our family values.

The silent suffering of young people dealing with mental health challenges is a largely unknown issue in our society. Through the Guru Goes Bollywood event, Rohit Group is grateful for the opportunity to help, by supporting programs and support systems funded by the Mental Health Foundation. The Foundation works to reverse the stigma associated with mental illness. For children and youth, this is paramount, as they are more sensitive to the opinions and perceptions of others.

At the Rohit Group of Companies, we strongly believe that by working together we can have a positive impact on children’s mental health help create a brighter future for young people who need to know that, as a community, we believe in them.

Krishna Gupta is supporting the “Guru Goes Bollywood Event” for the Mental Health Foundation on June 2, 2010 with an in kind donation including an all inclusive vacation to India complete with flexible tours. Taking place at the Guru Restaurant in Edmonton tickets are $250 per guest (50% charitable tax receipt).

Rohit Communities Launches Copper Point Resort

Rohit Communities Launches Copper Point Resort

Invermere, British Columba May 21, 2010 – Surrounded by the Purcell Mountains on one side, the Kootenays on the other and peppered with golf courses throughout, the Columbia Valley is the perfect place for your year-round playground.  Epitomizing this four-season hotspot is Rohit Communities’ Copper Point Resort. “This is a blow-your-socks-off condominium resort,” said Rohit’s Michellene Kandert. “This is a 106-unit development where nothing is overlooked.”

Nestled between Fairmont and Radium just three hours from Calgary, Copper Point Resort is more than your ordinary destination property. Overlooking one of the valley’s premier golf courses, Copper Point Golf Course, access to world-renowned skiing, and the picturesque Lake Windermere, the adventures to be found at Copper Point Resort are only limited by the imagination.

“The mountains seem to split the clouds, so the valley gets a lot of sun,” said Kandert. “People here have been playing golf for a month and a half, and can expect to be playing until at least Thanksgiving

A world of fun to explore awaits— that is if you ever make it out the front gates.

With a condominium resort property at Copper Point Resort, enjoy all the amenities of a five star hotel at home including a full service spa, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, fitness facilities, interactive playground, concierge, restaurant and lounge, and tennis and basketball courts.

While people who buy property in the Columbia Valley are essentially buying into a lifestyle of activity, at the end of the day residents settle into a place they will call home.

Units range in size from the 736 sq. ft. one-bedroom Amber to the 1,634 sq. ft. three-bedroom-plus-loft Quartz. No matter what the size, homeowners can expect to find natural slate turning to rich hardwood on the floors, fireplaces in both the master bedroom and great room, granite counter surfaces, professional decoration and full furnishings including a sofa bed in the living room.  The perfect combination of rustic charm and contemporary mountain living.

“This is rustic and contemporary mountain living that is attracting a really mixed demographic,” said Kandert. “We are seeing a strong inflow of people in their 30s and 40s who are upwardly mobile and love adventure. We are also seeing the people who are retiring and are looking for something to split sometime between a residence here and their home in Edmonton that their children and grand children can enjoy.”

Because there are so many different needs, Kandert says Rohit is offering both whole and fractional ownership. Whole starts at $289,000, quarter at $94,900 and an eighth ownership can be had for $59,900.

“We are going to see people who live there year round and others who add their place to the rental pool,” said Kandert. “Because Copper Point Resort is run like a hotel, the suite will be in pristine condition when the homeowner resturns. “Copper Point Resort is a worry-free way to enjoy all the best things about valley life.”

Edmonton, Alberta, May 6, 2010 – Rohit Communities, one of the premier Edmonton Home Builders, recently announced its partnership with Habitat for Humanity to improve the lives of Edmonton families by providing home ownership.

Rooted in family values and entrepreneurial spirit, Rohit Communities has grown into a leading Edmonton (and surrounding areas) home builder.  In March, Rohit Communities was named Edmonton’s Home Builder of the Year for 2010.  With continued success comes a penchant for giving back. For Rohit Communities providing support to charitable organizations is and always has been a fundamental initiative.

“Our family has been blessed and we’ve been treated well by the Edmonton community,” says Gupta “We were fortunate to ride the wave of prosperity. What we want to do is give people that same opportunity so they too can ride that wave.”
