UrbanToronto's recent trip to the top of the Monarch Group's Nautilus condominiums gave us the chance for some expansive views over the quickly developing Humber Bay Shores area of Etobicoke. Here is a look towards those other nearby projects.
Former motel sites, soon to be turned into condominium towers. Closest to the bottom of the photograph will be the Conservatory Group's Waterways project, then the Monarch Group's Lago site, then Graywood and Beaverhall's Ocean Club (you can just see the back of the Ocean Club sales office). Beyond that, where the Casa Mendoza Inn stands (red, in the photo), we don't know what's coming yet. Neither do we know what is coming on the property beyond that, where you can see the Lago and Waterways sales offices now under construction. Past that is the very narrow site of South Beach & Chestnut Hills' as yet unnamed project. Finally, where the large lawn is, Empire Communities will be announcing a large project there soon. (MJM Architects were responsible for early designs for another owner: some of us are hoping those might find their way to fruition here).
A close-up of those sales offices mentioned above. You get a good view of the Mimico Creek wetlands and parks here.
A map of everything explained above, just with south at the bottom of course, compared to northeast at the bottom in the photo above.
This is Empire's Beyond The Sea with two towers topped out at 27 and 37 storeys. Star Tower, the 44-storey third phase with the red crane, is only a few storeys above grade. The small office building at the bottom of the photo is coming down shortly to be replaced by the Onni Group's 3-tower Westlake Village project.
