Located at Speers Road and Kerr Street, Rain & Senses Condos by Empire Communities will soon be celebrating a major milestone. Construction on the master-planned community is now in the final stages and its 19- and 21-storey towers have already provided a modern addition to the Oakville skyline. The development’s first phase, Rain Condos, was completed in late 2016 and homeowners have now moved in.
Over at Senses, the penthouse suites are currently in the framing stage, while construction crews are putting the finishing touches, including tiles, kitchens and vanities on 14th and 15th floor units. Many lower floor suites, including those on the third level, are already occupied and PDIs are well underway up to the sixth floor. Plus, since many of the amenities are already complete, residents don’t have to wait long to enjoy the community’s resort-like experience.
The amenities include a 24-hour concierge, guest suites, an indoor swimming pool with dry sauna and a fully-equipped exercise room with weight training and cardio area. For entertaining, a grand party room can be reserved to host large gatherings and comes complete with a catering kitchen.
Designed by award-winning architecture firm Graziani + Corazza Architects Inc., the two towers boast clean and contemporary designs highlighted by a bright white facade, glass balconies and a shared five-storey podium.
On the north end of the site sit two historic homes which were restored and moved from the centre of the property to make room for the towers. The homes date back to the early 1900s with roots to two generations of a local family originally from Scotland. Their heritage value lies in their unique architecture and building materials which were inspired by the Arts and Crafts and Craftsman styles. Both homes are made of shale stone sourced from Lake Ontario.
Priced from the $400,000s, a limited number of quick occupancy suites are still available to choose from. The homes feature open concept floorplans with nine-foot ceilings and private balconies, terraces, or patios. Designer finishes include plank laminate engineered flooring, polished granite countertops, and glass tile backsplashes in kitchens. A full appliance package is also standard and features a stainless-steel range, fridge, dishwasher and over-the-range microwave.
As the project nears completion, the on-site sales office has permanently closed. To learn more about available suites, interested homebuyers can contact TFN Realty Inc. at 416 789 0288.
