The Fram Building Group and Slokker Real Estate Group are building a pedestrian friendly village on the shores of Collingwood's Harbour. The Shipyards, a forty acre site that was the home to shipbuilding in Collingwood for 100 years, is being brought back to life as an oasis of urbanity, directly north of Collingwood's thriving downtown main street, and on the shores of Georgian Bay. While the completion of the project will continue in phases for another half a dozen years, the initial phases are built and lived in.
Both townhomes and low-rise condominiums are currently selling at the site, in phases known as the Westmount and Montclair Collections, and Building No 1 respectively. Building No 2, at the south end of the Launch Basin and a short block from Collingwood's downtown, is expected to go on sale next.
Today we have several model shots and renders from around the site for you, and we'll start with this view across the site from the southwest. Buildings not yet constructed nor yet on sale are modeled in acrylic:
A landscaped parkland berm lies along the west side of the site:
Building No 1, closest to us in these images, is nearing completion:
Building No 2, closest to us in these images, will be the next low-rise condominium to be built:

A restaurant will eventually be built at the end of this point:
UrbanToronto will have more on The Shipyards to come!
