Where lake meets land and waves hug the shore, where wind and water paint a magical canvas. Where golden sun and gentle breeze pay tribute to a masterpiece of form, function and harmony. A breathtaking new landmark on the shoreline welcome to lakeside luxury, welcome to The Shores [map]!
Inspired by the lakeside setting, Wassermuhl’s (the architect) design gracefully curves towards the water like a sail in the wind. The iridescent glass facade gently rises from the shoreline, with stepped terraces reflecting the lake, unifying water and sky. Spectacular vistas of the lake provide a visual connection to the shimmering waters. The elegant design concept is carried through into the magnificent lobby, suites and amenities.
Only steps away are a wide selection of amenities, from jewelers to salons, from fine dining to fast food, from small food markets to a 24-hour Sobeys at Bronte Village Mall. There’s even a handy health centre and pharmacy just around the corner. And that’s just within walking distance. Within a 10-minute drive is everything Oakville has to offer, with even more charming shopping areas, theatres, galleries, restaurants and lakeside treats.
“The Shores is a unique structure designed to reflect and enhance the lakeside setting, creating an ideal waterfront environment for residents. The glass façade reflects the lake’s waves below and the sky above. Tapered terraces cascade either side, rising up and down the building like waves.” Architect Sol Wassermuhl
