AquaBlu Lakeshore Condos by Homes by DeSantis has reached 85 sold status, after having launched only in May, and sales continue to be brisk.
“We’ve become very good at staying ahead of the curve,” says President Gabriel DeSantis. “People want to live at the lake, they want luxury and easy access to major centres all at an affordable price.
“AquaBlu is going to be an icon on the Grimsby waterfront, both from an architectural perspective and amenity perspective.”
With residences starting at only $239,900, AquaBlu definitely fits the bill. One notable trend is the variety of buyers at AquaBlu – from first-time buyers to investors to downsizers.
First-time buyers Brent and Alex say they are excited about their new home. “We grew up in the area and it’s been really exciting seeing all the changes that continue to happen in Grimsby. We wanted to a part of it! Grimsby is such an amazing place with lots of trails and things to do nearby. Our favourite feature is probably the rooftop patio. It’s going to be an awesome spot to enjoy summer evenings.”
Homes by DeSantis assembled the best from the industry to create AquaBlu. Starting with the critically acclaimed architectural firm KNY Architects, which recently designed several award-winning condos in the GTA. KNY Architects has devised AquaBlu to have an abundance of glass to maximize its setting along the shores of Lake Ontario. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow homeowners the full experience of the glorious natural landscape.
Modeled after the boutique hotels in South Beach Miami, the interior will be crafted by the dynamic team at Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting of Toronto. This design firm brings global style, sophistication and elegance to everything it touches.
Their mark will be seen in each suite but also the outstanding building amenity areas, including a sprawling sky lounge terrace, the soaring two-storey lobby, fitness and yoga centre, the club room and a games room. Enhancing all of this will be a custom sculpture located in the roundabout in front of the lobby entrance. A public art competition was held to develop this piece and an artist been chosen, with the announcement slated to occur during the groundbreaking celebration Oct. 21.
A selection of one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom and two- bedroom plus den units are still available, ranging from 526 to more than 1,000 sq. ft.
