Kite Mobility partners with community builder Brigil
TORONTO, Dec. 9, 2022 /CNW/ - Kite Mobility announces a unique partnership with The Dale, a 33-storey rental high-rise located in Ottawa, built by real estate developer Brigil. In continuing their commitment to enable and promote active and electric transportation, Brigil's partnership with cleantech platform Kite will provide residents with unprecedented access to a fleet of eVehicles.
First-to-market in Ottawa, residents at The Dale will have private and convenient access to sustainable transportation models connecting them to everything Westboro, Wellington West and Hintonburg has to offer, while reducing their environmental footprint for the benefit of future generations. This includes multiple mobility options, exclusive community events, offers and promotions, all via Kite's mobile application.
Kite's cleantech commitment remains intact, partnering with surrounding sustainable communities to support their products and services, from helping local farms in delivering to private residences or providing students with discounts on trips to reduce the impact of vehicle costs and its environmental impact.
Residents will have the options of either a pay-per-use or a scheduling model. At The Dale, users can access 2 BMWi3's, and an additional 8 electric bikes, which will occupy the Kite zone, a dedicated space within the building's existing underground parking lot.
"Our objective is to provide an environment where residents can live a fulfilling life while also reducing their environmental footprint," notes Jessy Desjardins, Brigil's vice president, Development and Design. "As ethical, eco-sensitive developers, our responsibility goes well beyond buiding. Developing a complete living environment includes protecting the urban boundary and preserving the area's beautiful natural environment. Our partnership with Kite perfectly aligns with this vision and we are thrilled to embark on this new adventure."
The new partnership comes at a time when municipal regulations have continued to reduce the amount of vehicular parking spots in new developments, while also setting new green standards as the City moves towards new carbon targets.
"Kite provides a high level of convenience, choice of leading vehicle types/brands, and accessibility given we customize our offering to suit the buildings themselves. We offer an elevated level of electric vehicles, with insurance, charging, and a world class digital user experience at highly competitive rates. By offering multiple transportation options on the property, we're aiming to eliminate barriers for residents, many of whom no longer have an interest in owning a car, which typically sits in the parking garage, unused the majority of the time. Our focus is to materially reduce GHG emissions and congestion within our communities" says Scott Macwilliam, Founder of Kite.
