New waterfront development planned for Port Dalhousie, Ont.
Combining what the developers are calling “the unique characteristics of a small Canadian heritage town [with] a premier opportunity for those seeking waterfront living,” the new Port Place mixed-use waterfront development is underway in the town of Port Dalhousie, approximately 100 kilometres west of Toronto near the Niagara region.
A joint effort between lead developer Port Dalhousie Visualization Corp. (PDVC) and Fortress Real Developments, a Richmond Hill based real estate firm. “Port Dalhousie is one of Ontario’s hidden gems,” said Jawad Rathore, president of Fortress. “We were drawn to this project’s obvious strengths of residential, commercial and hotel mix, but it is the breathtaking scenery and charm of this town that sealed the deal for Fortress to get involved.”
Located adjacent to Port Dalhousie’s harbour, this mixed-use waterfront development will preserve key heritage elements while adding upscale condo suites, 35,000 square feet of retail-commercial space, a theatre and a boutique hotel. “Port Place is the largest private development in Niagara in the last 25 years and will be the only multi-component development on the waterfront between Burlington and Buffalo,” said Derek Martin, president of PDVC.
