Hamilton area: The Gatsby by New Horizon Homes

This is it – your final opportunity to live in a brand new, gorgeous, Art Deco-inspired condo building in an historic community, featuring a convenient proximity to all Hamilton has to offer.

The Gatsby is the third and final phase in New Horizon Development’s City Square project, which marks the first new build in 25 years in Hamilton’s beloved Durand neighbourhood. Thanks to the vision of New Horizon, this unique setting is enjoying an incredible new chapter.

Situated in a prime location that boasts a history all its own, plus a convenient proximity to major amenities including transportation and shopping, this last phase complements the two already-sold sites at 85 Robinson St.

This build marks the culmination of a vision that began in 2001, when New Horizon proposed creating a market for new-build condos in a downtown where it previously didn’t exist. The company’s goal was to work closely with community groups and immediate neighbours to ensure the development was well received. It chose to model City Square after the Art Deco tradition, a revered style that perfectly matched New Horizon’s aesthetic goals for the site: modern, elegant and forward-thinking.

The result?

The first two towers were almost sold out in 30 days and the architectural vision has earned New Horizon appreciative nods from both the design community and locals on the street alike. Residents in the 176 new units already enjoying life at City Square have declared that they’re in love with their new homes, especially with the Square’s proximity to James Street South and the GO Station, a park across the street and St. Joseph’s Hospital right around the corner. In fact, many happy owners have commented that they had been waiting for the right new home to move into so they could come back to the Durand neighbourhood to live.

With its commitment to providing residents with just the right amenities, offering convenient services without high maintenance costs and condo fees, New Horizon is also committed to leaving as little a footprint as possible. The Gatsby, therefore, is a completely Green building, boasting geothermal heating and cooling.

The newest addition to City Square will see 102 new units built, ranging in size from 530 to 1,000 sq. ft. “As developers,” says Joe Giacomodonato, vice-president of New Horizon Development Group, “we are extremely proud of the architecture, quality of the suites and the practicality of the amenities that are offered at The Gatsby Condos at City Square. And the fact that the building offers geothermal heating and cooling to all of its residents is a big benefit.”

Since 1993, New Horizon has continually proven itself to be a leader in building communities with picturesque settings, where savvy design and high quality craftsmanship provide convenience and comfort. Whether it be custom estates, planned neighbourhoods or condo developments, New Horizon has been driven to redefine the buyer’s expectations for what a home can be.
