The call of the water was heard loud and clear by hundreds of people as the Homes by DeSantis’ waterfront condo development AquaBlu sold at a record pace. It’s no surprise really, as the project delivered with pinpoint accuracy what today’s market is looking for.
Outstanding design aesthetic, vibrant location and amazing value. Recently named the Most Outstanding Midrise Building by the Ontario Home Builders’ Association, this new resort style aesthetic is hitting home with customers and associations alike.
“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. We are excited to bring the high standards of luxury that characterize Homes by DeSantis projects to what is becoming the transformative market in west Niagara,” says President Gabriel DeSantis.
This success, coupled with an encompassing vision for a waterfront community is the inspiration for the new resort inspired condo building on the adjacent parcel of land, entitled AquaZul. “We’ve assembled the brightest and best from the industry to create AquaZul – a building which embraces the sophisticated yet casual lifestyle that embodies the town of Grimsby,” says DeSantis.
It all begins with the critically acclaimed architectural firm KNYMH, the architects behind the AquaBlu development. Continuing with this influence, AquaZul has been designed to have an abundance of glass with floor-to-ceiling windows and dramatic exterior colour palette. The South Beach Miami interiors are echoed throughout the building, and will again be crafted by the dynamic team at Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting of Toronto.
This six-storey waterfront condominium development will bring stunning residences ranging in size from one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus den, with select Elite Series Suites available.
Homes by DeSantis understands that homebuyers want more than just four walls – condo life extends to every corner of the building.
Amenity spaces dramatically enhance the allure of AquaZul, with a sprawling courtyard, pool with luxurious cabanas and outdoor grill areas. Coupled with an array of interior amenities, including a Club Room, theatre room, fitness centre and billiards room.
Perched atop a two-storey loggia and entryway, these amenities are located on the third floor and flanked by a massive exterior balcony which overlooks the pool, courtyard and Lake Ontario.
Living in this building is more like living at a five-star resort hotel than a typical city condo. Not only will the building impress, but the town of Grimsby is undergoing a renaissance all its own.
DeSantis feels strongly that the region is at the precipice of considerable expansion. “A lot of attention has been paid to what’s going on in the GTA, and Grimsby does not get the same level of attention as the larger urban centres. However, with the waterfront investment and long-term demographics and the recent announcement of the GO Train expansion, opportunities here are equally strong, it’s a smart investment.”
The town has committed almost $5 million to create a waterfront trail system with wandering promenades, passage to newly constructed beaches and outdoor pavilion spaces.
This new waterfront plan is occurring adjacent to the Homes by DeSantis Aqua Developments, with trail entrances and lake access mere steps off the properties.
Located directly off Casablanca Boulevard, AquaZul has outstanding access to the QEW and is perfectly situated to optimize passage to the new Grimsby Casablanca GO Station.
