We have to say, we’re really starting to get excited about Homes By DeSantis’ new mid-rise condo in Grimsby, AquaBlu, especially since they just released brand new exterior renderings!
AquaBlu, aptly named as it will be located on the shore of Lake Ontario, has been designed by award-winning firm KNY Architects. The condo will rise five storeys, feature 120 units, as well as an exclusive collection of four townhomes. Out of the 120 condo units, there will be 14 unique floor plans from which to choose, with incredible features and finishes, such as spacious balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. The townhomes will have double balconies and unbelieveable private rooftop terraces.
With well known Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting at the helm with regards to the interior design, you can expect some of the most luxurious features and finishes throughout the suites, as well as the beautiful amenity spaces. AquaBlu’s amenities include a sprawling sky lounge terrace, a magnificent two-storey lobby, a fully equipped fitness and yoga centre, a club room, and a games room for mingling with neighbours and friends.
“We’ve become very good at staying ahead of the curve, people want to live at the lake, they want luxury and easy access to major centres all at an affordable price,” says Gabriel DeSantis, President of Homes By DeSantis, in a recent blog post. When DeSantis says “at the lake,” he means at the lake. AquaBlu will rise just one minute away from the Casablanca Boulevard exit off the QEW.
As if to make AquaBlu even more of an attractive condo option, the Town of Grimsby recently announced that they are dedicating $5 million towards the development of a Waterfront Trail, which will include pedestrian promenades leading to new beaches and public pavilions.
“The popularity of Grimsby as a place for new development and investment in recent years is demonstrating what long-time residents have known all along, that Grimsby is a wonderful place to live, raise a family, work, play and visit,” says the Mayor of Grimsby, Bob Bentley. “With beautiful natural landscapes and a well-planned, vibrant and friendly by nature community, Grimsby is welcoming to all who wish to take advantage of its many amenities.”
In addition to the new waterfront infrastructure planned for Grimsby, the town features an abundance of everyday necessities, including grocery stores, schools, parks, recreation and entertainment centres, and transit options. In fact, there is a GO Bus pick-up right at Casablanca and South Service Road for commuters who prefer to leave the car at home. Living at AquaBlu means that you never have to travel more than 10 minutes to accomplish any errand.
Homes By DeSantis is committed to becoming a strong piece of Grimsby’s historical fabric. As you can see in one of the renderings, there is a wispy looking white sculpture in the centre of the roundabout in front of the lobby entrance. Homes By DeSantis is going to be holding a design competition open to artists in the Greater Toronto Area and Niagara region to come up with a sculpture that best represents what luxury living on Grimsby’s waterfront is all about.
AquaBlu almost sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? We haven’t even gotten to the best part yet. The condo units at AquaBlu will be starting at just $189,900. That’s right, Homes By DeSantis is making lakeside living affordable for first-time homebuyers! Of course, with a wide range of floor plans, there will be plenty of singles, couples, empty nesters, and families living at AquaBlu, but we can’t stress enough how amazing it is that out of these groups of people, some will be realizing their dreams of homeownership.
