Living the condo lifestyle on a waterfront is a dream for many, but some believe it to be unattainable due to lofty prices in areas on the lake. In many cases, this assumption is correct, but there are definitely waterfront condos for all sorts of homebuyers who want to live on the shore of Lake Ontario.
Listed below, we’ve compiled a list of eight waterfront developments from Grimsby to Toronto, all of which are steps to Lake Ontario, and there are condo units for first-time buyers, investors, empty-nesters, and those in search of a weekend getaway home.
AquaBlu in Grimsby by Homes By DeSantis
There are actually many waterfront developments underway in Grimsby, which is pretty exciting for the town. This condo development by Homes By DeSantis is a boutique lakeside residence that is now 90% sold and under construction.
Homes By DeSantis will soon be launching AquaZul, which is Phase 2 of their master-planned waterfront community. AquaZul will stand six storeys and feature 314 units. In order to be the first to learn more about this new development, you should register right now!
Lake House in Grimsby by Branthaven Homes
Here’s another Grimsby waterfront development you should check out. Branthaven opened the doors to Lake House last fall and hundreds of homebuyers flocked to the presentation centre because they recognized the potential of this area, plus Branthaven has a very good reputation in the Hamilton-Halton-Burlington market.
There is a variety of low-rise home options at Lake House and there are two condo buildings. The units in the first condo range from 465 to 1,185 square feet and in the second condo from 500 to 1,185 square feet. Branthaven is known for their innovative and smart home features, so register today!
Waterview Condos in Grimsby by LJM Developments
This innovative development is the first single-loaded condo we’ve seen, which means that all the units are on one side of the building, guaranteeing that every resident has a view of the water.
Phase 1 of Waterview Condos is 85% sold and under construction while Phase 2 is selling. There are three future phases planned, so this is one development that you’re going to want to get in on early. Now is the time!
Nautique Lakefront Residences in Burlington by Adi Development Group
As of the beginning of 2016, Nautique was over 75% sold. This is arguably Burlington’s first luxury condo on its waterfront and we can’t think of a better developer to make it happen.
Adi Development Group has seen a lot of success at Mod’rn and LINK Condos; in a way, they kind of set the precedent for new, boutique condo living in Burlington. If you’re interested in learning more about Nautique, visit the stunning model suite at the presentation centre on Brant Street, just north of the water.
Eau Du Soleil in Toronto by Empire
Located in the Humber Bay area in the west side of Toronto, Eau Du Soleil features two towers, Sky Tower and Water Tower. Empire’s involvement in Humber Bay has really transformed the area.
Eau Du Soleil offers resort-style amenities, intelligent suite designs with stunning views of the lake and downtown Toronto skyline, and you will be just steps from the Waterfront Trail. There is a lot of new retail space opening up in the area, so the streetscape is becoming more and more walkable every day. See which suites are available at Eau Du Soleil!
Pier 27 in Toronto by Fernbrook and Cityzen
When it comes to waterfront living in Toronto, Pier 27 is about as central as it gets. Located on the southeast corner of Queens Quay and Yonge, Fernbrook and Cityzen have already made a great impression with the first phase of Pier 27. The second phase, Pier 27 Tower is now under way and it promises to be a very striking addition to Toronto’s waterfront skyline.
We’ve visited the Pier 27 presentation centre and checked out the scale model, and it looks incredible; definitely worth the visit! Learn more about Pier 27 Tower here.
Lighthouse Tower in Toronto by Daniels
One of the most exciting master-plans in Toronto is Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts, on the east side of Jarvis. Lighthouse Tower is the first phase of residential and it is already over 70% sold and under construction!
As usual, Daniels is bringing their signature brand of innovation to Toronto’s waterfront by including plans for a European inspired retail environment called The Yard and a public area dubbed Sugar Beach North. Click here to learn more about the units and amenities at Lighthouse Tower.
Aqualina and Aquavista in Toronto by Tridel
Aqualina by Tridel
The Bayside Toronto master-plan by Tridel and Hines is located just east of Daniels Waterfront. Aqualina is the first phase of residential and Aquavista is the second. Phase 1 is currently under construction and last year, Aquavista received the Best P2G Community of the Year Award at the BILD Awards.
The Bayside Toronto master-plan is quite extensive, so now is the time to get in on the neighbourhood because being one of the first to purchase is always the best investment!
