Waterview-Condominiums-full The contemporary style of Waterview Condos, a new six-storey building coming to the Grimsby lakefront, fits right into the up and coming Midpoint Center. It’ll feature plenty of new shopping options and innovative live/work spaces.

While mixed-use enclaves are at the forefront of urban planning, the project by LJM Developments stands out for ensuring big city conveniences fit into the more peaceful lifestyle of the Niagara region.

The area is rich in opportunities for eating – and even drinking – locally. As part of the Ontario Greenbelt, the Grimsby farmers’ market runs every Thursday from the end of May until the beginning of October and features 30 regional vendors selling fresh fruit, vegetables, honey, flowers, home baking as well as meats, eggs and local cheeses. And with Niagara wines winning awards across the world, you’ll have easy access to the countless wineries in the area too.

For nature-lovers, the Beamer Memorial Conservation Area features panoramic views of the city and the lake. Among the lush greenery, there’s also a trail that leads to the staggering, 23-metre Upper Beamer Falls. The water cascades down hundreds of thin layers of rock in the Niagara Escarpment into Forty Mile Creek.

Beamer Upper Falls is a ramp waterfall in the shape of a fan with water flowing from the Forty Mile Creek. Water cascades down hundreds of thin rock layers consistently. It is a perfect waterfall to visit at any time, with little micro falls occurring even during low flows due to the river being spread out. It can be viewed from above around the top of the gorge, or by following a trail to the base of the waterfall.

The area is also a hotspot for birders thanks to the hawks that migrate through the region every spring.

Of course you can’t forget the waterfront. Whether you want to kayak or photograph the colourful cottages along Grimsby Beach, Lake Ontario has a wealth of recreational opportunities.

What other condo community boasts waterfront views, urban amenities and easy access to the natural world?

The nine storey project is currently in its registration phase.
