In recent years, the Burlington Downtown lakefront has been asserting a more urban presence. Approximately 50 kilometres west of Toronto's Downtown core, new development is bringing density and mixed-use to previously low-rise, residential areas. While many areas north of the QEW are also quickly growing, where Brant Street meets the waterfront is perhaps the most conspicuously changing Burlington urban node.
Joining the urbanizing waterfront, Adi's Nautique Lakefront Residences will rise to a height of 26 storeys at the foot of Martha Street. Set to become Burlington's tallest building (for the time being), the glassy tower will add 170 new residences to the city's Downtown, with a design now led by Icon Architects.
With most of the units now sold, we take a look at some of the remaining floorplans, along with an overview of the Cecconi Simone-appointed interiors. With suites ranging in size from 452 ft² to 1,859 ft², the development is meant to accommodate a range of lifestyles while prioritizing views of the water to the south.
At 519 ft², the 1-bedroom 'Vand' suite seen below is one the project's smaller units. Facing southeast, the suite features a small balcony—still wide enough to two chairs—offering a view of the lake. Accessible from the open living/dining space, the balcony also shares a wall with the bedroom, which is also positioned to face the water.
The 2-bedroom 'Vertex' unit provides a significantly larger living space. Facing northeast, the 734 ft² suite features two washrooms, including a spacious bathroom accessible from both the master bedroom and the foyer, and a smaller space facing out to the living area.
Meanwhile, the 1,089 ft² 'Zenith' floorplan is Nautique's largest remaining unit. Facing southeast, the 2-bedroom + den suite is found on floors 19-21, with a showpiece balcony spanning the length of the unit. Overlooking the lake from a high perch, the suite boasts two generously configured bedrooms, both of which face the water with set-private balcony spaces.
To get a better overview of the completed spaces, a living room rendering shows off the panoramic lake view available to upper level suites. Featuring simple finishes and natural tones, the interiors will be characterized by a clean and modern aesthetic, although with customizable decor elements.
Profiled in our earlier story, the project's amenities are also configured to maximize views of the water, with a 6th floor outdoor terrace (seen below) a particular focal point of the communal spaces. Meanwhile, another amenity space on the 18th floor will privilege views from higher up.
Additional information and renderings of other amenity spaces within the development can be found in our dataBase file for Nautique, linked below. Want to get involved in the discussion? Check out the associated Forum threads, or leave a comment using the space provided at the bottom of this page.
