Mattamy Homes breaks ground on newest Oakville community: The Residences of Creekshore Common
OAKVILLE, ON, April 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Award-winning builder Mattamy Homes has broken ground on construction of its latest Oakville community: The Residences of Creekshore Common. This unique collection of upscale, boutique condominiums will provide a variety of modern living options for those looking to make their home in one of Oakville's most desirable addresses.
Mattamy, which has grown into North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, has its roots in the Oakville area and has been building in the Town since 1980, with nearly 5,000 homes in 13 communities. This includes Mattamy's flagship community of The Preserve in North Oakville, which opened for sale in 2014. To date, all these homes have been low-rise; The Residences of Creekshore Common represents the company's first mid-rise building in Oakville.
"Our objective with this community was to establish a new benchmark for architectural excellence in North Oakville," says Jill Lalonde, VP Sales & Marketing for Mattamy's Halton/Hamilton Division. "We wanted to create something unique, and engage the future Dundas Urban Corridor in a bold manner, setting a precedent for future development. We can't wait to see families calling The Residences at Creekshore Common home. This will be the first of many future projects of this nature for Mattamy Homes."
Oakville Mayor Rob Burton, along with Regional and Town Councillor Jeff Knoll, joined representatives of Mattamy Homes on April 5, 2016, to officially break ground on the development. "This unique, vibrant new community is the kind of addition to our town that all Oakville residents stand to benefit from," said Mayor Burton. "It's a positive step in bringing the Dundas Urban Corridor to life and contributing to an even more livable Oakville."
Councillor Knoll echoed the Mayor's comments: "Mattamy's vision for the property is perfectly aligned with our desire for the Dundas Corridor to be a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use urban community."
The Residence of Creekshore Common explores a new, modern architectural style, with layouts ranging from 925 to 1,188 square feet, and prices ranges starting at $405,990. Features and amenities of the building include:
- Standard, high-end finishes throughout
- Floor-to-ceiling windows
- 9' ceilings and 14' penthouse ceilings
- Granite kitchen surfaces
- Superior hardware throughout
- Stylish pendant lighting
- Spacious master bedroom with double-sink ensuite, glass shower and grand walk-in closet
- Large balconies, patios, and terraces
- Fitness centre and pet spa on-site
- Common Lounge for personal event space or as a common gathering place.
- Roof-top terrace with barbeques for the use of all residents
The design for The Residences Of Creekshore Common challenges traditional expectations of midrise living. "Projecting planes in combination with floor-to-ceiling glass and 'wide and shallow suite layouts' increases natural light to all living spaces and provides new opportunities in contemporary architectural language," says Frances Martin-DiGiuseppe, OAA, Principal Architect, Q4 Architects Inc. – the award-winning firm that designed The Residences Of Creekshore Common.
The community is an extension of The Preserve and is located on the north side of Dundas Street, west of Sixth Line. Situated between two large ponds and directly next to a naturalized channel, it shares physical and visual relationships with neighborhood nodes, community parks and Oakville's Natural Heritage System. It was designed to be walkable, cycle-friendly, and transit-oriented in order to promote active and healthy living. The community is convenient to the necessities of modern urban living, including:
- Grocery stores
- Pubs and fine dining
- Neighbourhood parks
- Quick and easy access to the QEW, 401, 407, Oakville GO station
Sustainability was an important design aspect for The Residences Of Creekshore Common. The community plan is efficient in delivering medium-density housing in a small parcel of land while preserving physical relationships as well as expansive views to the Natural Heritage System, adjacent Munn's Creek, and Oakville landscape beyond. Incorporated water-based subsystems support surrounding picturesque ponds while sloped planted landscapes slow surface run-off to neighbouring sites. South-facing rooms are shaded by large overhangs reducing heat load. Locally produced prefabricated wall, floor and roof panels create efficiencies and reduce waste.
The Residences of Creekshore Common are currently for sale, with occupancy anticipated for the summer of 2017.
