On the shores of Humber Bay, high-rise construction projects continue to form a new skyline for southern Etobicoke. In the heart of the action, Beaverhall Homes and Graywood Developments' Ocean Club is seeing major progress, with work now under way on the final floors of the 39-storey tower, while the adjacent 10-storey 'boutique' building has been topped-off and almost fully clad at the Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects-designed complex.
Concrete work is currently ongoing on tower's 39th and final residential floor, after which we will see the building's mechanical penthouse and sloping precast roof feature begin to materialize.
The tower's podium is also moving along nicely. In the image below, blue-green window wall glazing and precast concrete cladding seal off the tower's base, while finer details like townhome entrances have also materialized.
Further along is the development's ten-storey boutique condominium building, now almost completely sealed from the elements by glass, spandrel and precast cladding. We will soon have a better idea of this building's final aesthetic once installation of balcony glass gets underway.
Once completed, the community will feature 19,000 square feet of landscaping by Strybos Barron King in the style of oceanfront condos in South Beach, Miami and Vancouver. Residents of the development will have access to a wide range of amenities, including a game room, gym, party room, roof deck and swimming pool, but it is the less typical amenities, like the indoor salt-water pool and water-cascading hot tub, that set this project apart.
Ocean Club is located in a rapidly developing area. Once known as the Lake Shore Motel Strip, the condominium towers now under way in what has been renamed Humber Bay Shores have been gradually filling out the scenic area with thousands of new residents over the last dozen years. As seen below, Ocean Club is currently the closest project on the south side of Lake Shore to the Mimico Creek. In coming years, several more developments will complete the build-out of the area. Across from all of these towers are the extensive Humber Bay parklands, the bay itself, and views across Lake Ontario towards Toronto's Downtown skyline.
