Ballantry Homes and Silwell Developments Ltd have advanced plans for the first phase of their new Master-planned community called the Villages of Oak Park, located in Oakville's Uptown Core a couple blocks to the south of Dundas Street and west of Trafalgar Road. The development will have frontage on the west side of Oak Park Boulevard north side of Hays Boulevard. Future phases will extend the development to the entire block as far north as Oak Walk Drive and west to Millwood Drive.

The site of the proposed development is currently vacant. Ballantry and Silwell first submitted a Zoning By-law Amendment application for the multi-phase community of the Town of Oakville in 2019, which was approved. Now, a Site Plan Approval application submitted in April is under review for the first phase which would consist of a 12 storey mixed-use, mostly residential building with some retail at ground level. Designed by Kirkor Architects, the building is proposed to feature a warm brick facade on its lower levels, paired with cream-coloured panels on its upper levels. The windows would all feature contrasting framing, with the lower levels framed in white, and the upper levels framed in black.

The 226 residential units are proposed in a mix of 134 one-bedrooms and one-bedroom + dens (59%), 75 two-bedrooms and two-bedroom + dens (33%), and 7 three-bedrooms (3%) – in addition to 10 townhomes (4%) that would be integrated into the base of the building. 

Indoor and outdoor amenity area would total 1,158m² in area – with the outdoor amenity located on the roof of the ninth level – and 1,089m² of commercial area would be located at grade. Two underground levels would contain a total of 324 spaces for vehicles.
