Mattamy Homes is bringing a second phase to their successful ClockWork condo community in Upper Joshua Creek, a sprawling ravine community located along Dundas Street East in Oakville, just west of Toronto. Although positioned in a relatively new area, the first phase has sold out, and Mattamy is expecting the same level of excitement for the second. Designed by BNKC, ClockWork Phase Two will stand 12 storeys tall, house a total of 174 residential suites, its exterior set to feature masonry accented with gold glazing,.
At the heart of the ClockWork Phase Two community is a communal plaza designed for residents to meet and relax. This public square – which will link up to future buildings in the community – plays a pivotal role in making the area a fully walkable neighbourhood. As seen in the image below, ClockWork’s buildings have been designed to maximize the amount of light that makes its way into the interiors, while limiting the shadows that cast across the communal plaza.
Entrances to ClockWork Phase Two's lobby will be located at both the north and south sides of the building, connected by a breezeway that stretches between the east and west sides of the building. The lobby will be decorated with fixtures and finishes appointed by II BY IV DESIGN to communicate a warm and welcoming environment.
Amenities within the building will include a fitness studio with a yoga room that will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, while a social lounge will be connected to the rooftop terrace that will offer barbecue stations and an outdoor lounging area. While landscaped with lush rooftop gardens and trees, the terrace will feature views of both Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment.
ClockWork's one-bedroom suites will feature In-suite laundry, large windows that will offer copious amounts of natural light, a balcony or terrace off of the living room, and a kitchen island with breakfast bar, while two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus den suites will feature a more open-concept layout, giving residents one large, expansive space to make their own.
ClockWork will boast a sustainable underground geothermal system to which each suite will be connected, heated and cooled with its own heat pump. The system works with natural heat stored in the ground, collected and supplied to each suite, providing a steady temperature as well as humidity control. As it requires no direct use of fossil fuels to run, geothermal energy offers stable and predictable monthly heating and cooling costs.
Other building features include SmartHome technology, featuring keyless entry, remote access and security, automated vehicle entry for access to underground parking, in-unit smart thermostat control, real-time parcel notifications, and video calling for residents to see who has arrived before choosing to let them into the building.
The greater community around ClockWork offers nearby restaurants, shopping areas, and recreation facilities, as well as multiple primary, secondary, and post-secondary schools, in addition to multiple spacious parks, and and other local amenities. The condo community is also close to the 403, 407, and QEW, or is a short drive to Oakville GO station from where trains can whisk passengers into downtown Toronto in just 30 minutes.
