Though major housing markets have cooled elsewhere in Canada, the area around Hamilton at the west end of Lake Ontario continues to draw in buyers with competitive pricing compared locations closer to Toronto's core. Just east of Hamilton on the QEW, the town of Grimsby is one of the many smaller communities in the GTHA seeing a surge in demand for housing, a demand which is being met not only by single-family homes, but with multi-unit communities like LJM DevelopmentsWaterview Condominiums as well.

Located to the north of the QEW and within view of Lake Ontario's nearby southern shore, the development is rising to the immediate south of a townhome community that was completed in 2014. With only two-storey townhomes separating Waterview from Lake Ontario, most views—the building's suite are oriented predominantly to favour the lake to the north—will be completely unobstructed, with the distant Toronto skyline the reward, especially as it twinkles by night.

The Icon Architects-designed development will consist of two buildings to be built in phases, with the first phase now rising on the west side of the site, and the second phase on the east to follow. The 9-storey first phase recently reached a major milestone, with the pouring of its ground floor slab.

Residents at Waterview will enjoy amenities including a WiFi-enabled roof terrace featuring outdoor hot tubs and barbecue areas, as well as a party room, a fitness centre, and a lobby with 24-hour concierge service. The development will also include ground floor retail spaces.

The project's Grimsby location will give residents access to neighbourhood amenities like a local skate park, the West Niagara YMCA, Grimsby Hockey arena, Grimsby Public Library, Public Art Gallery, the Grimsby Museum, and the Danish Church. The QEW provides quick access by car to urban centres throughout Niagara and the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, while a planned Grimsby GO Station will improve commuting accessibility in the future.
