Work progresses on Cityzen and Fernbrook's Bronte Harbour project in western Oakville, called The Shores Condos. The 10-storey condominium is designed in a modern nautical idiom by principal Sol Wassermuhl of Page + Steele/IBI Archtiects. The building's terraced upper floor suggest an ocean liner, while staggered columns on the balconies of lower floor units suggest the masts of sailboats in harbours on the both the west and south sides of the project.
The Shores sales pavilion:
A render of the site from the air, in the sales office:
Shots from around the model, starting with the view from the southwest:
You can see the two original structures that will be restored and repurposed.
Vehicular access will be on the north side of the building.
Large terrraces are largest on the north point of the building.
This is the same corner as the model shot above, with Stoneboats Restaurant where the blank triangle of land appears in the foreground of the model.
The sales pavilion's site will eventually be part of The Shores' garden area.
The two buildings on site which were saved. The samller one to the left may become a commercial unit, while the old Glenvilla Inn on the right will become two townhomes.
Concrete is being poured for the garage floors.
