Definitely one of the better condos I've seen along there so far. The ones that they've actually built so far are absolutely hideous.

it's amazing to me to see how urban, mixed-use, high density neighbourhood design has taken shape all along the TO waterfront, Mississauga, Burlington (skipped Hamilton of course cuz 3-car garages and cul de sacs 1980's) and now onto Grimsby. I'm sure St Catharines will be next (while we keep building 1980's cul de sacs and 3-car garages) It really is fascinating to see how dramatic an effect city hall has on the success or stagnation of a city.

To be fair, Hamilton really doesn't have the same lakefront as any of those other places because of the industries. The geography of the harbour kinda cuts downtown off from the lake unlike any of the other cities around it. I'm sure Hamilton's rate of suburban sprawl is no worse than Toronto's.

Not tall enough. People living at Green Rd. will be able to launch chairs in that direction that might hit, if the prevailing winds are moderately strong.

I'm referring to our section of lakeshore from the Niagara border all the way over to Confederation Park. It's literally the exact same geography as downtown Burlington or Humber Bay or Grimsby. We build single homes and townhomes…all these other regions build high-density, mixed use communities.
