The GTA suburbs are exponentially urbanizing, by rapidly creating their own bustling downtown cores outside Downtown Toronto.
Oakville is incredibly good at this, with its continuous ambition to grow and expand as an urban centre. This is plain to see with the new development of a new community headed to the city by Distrikt Developments. Distrikt Trailside Condos is a new condominium project which will stand at 407 Dundas Street West in Oakville.
The mixed-use site will boast design from Kirkor Architect + Planners, and include a wide variety of unit types and layouts. This diverse development is truly the perfect addition to the urbanizing area, and is the perfect opportunity to invest in the ever-growing cosmopolitan suburb of Oakville.
Distrikt Trailside condo development boasts an expansive 6 acre site. The two tower project is projected to house around 647 residential units: condos, lofts and towns. The first project to the west at 407 Dundas St W – block 1 is comprised of 247 units in a 10-storey condo tower, 36 back to back townhouse units, and 17 three-story townhomes. To the east at 393 Dundas St W – building A will be a 10 storey tower with 349 residential units.
The towers will also be mixed use, with almost 4,200 square feet of commercial space at ground level. Ground floor will feature the grand double height lobby ceiling, retail, future cafe, gallery or studio. Designed by Kirkor Architects it will boast an incredibly modern exterior aesthetic, with the building standing 10 storeys. Complete with glass panelling and expansive windows and stunning balconies, this is the modern, minimalist addition Oakville constantly seems to be attracting. However, its grandiose stature makes it stand apart from the city’s other structures. The condominiums will feature 9ft ceilings while lower and upper penthouses floors will be 10ft ceilings. Over 15,000 sq ft of beautifully designed and programmed indoor and outdoor amenity space with the next generation smart living app – Distrikt AI.
It’s innovative design has it made it so that it steps down to 8 and then 6 storeys at the structure’s north end. This does an appealing job of breaking up the building to help it look seamless with the additional townhome units. The townhomes will stand 3 storeys tall.
Residents of Distrikt Trailside condo tower and stacked townhomes will have access to parking in an underground garage. This luxurious and ambitious project will have a total of 753 parking spots. For the west tower a total of 356 parking spaces will be made available, with 258 for the condo building and 36 allocated for stacked town home residents. There will be 12 parking spaces allocated for retail visitors, and 50 for residential visitors.
Location & Neighbourhood
Placed on the north side of Dundas Street West, and nestled between Neyagawa Blvd. & George Savage Blvd, this site boasts an incredibly central location in this urban suburb. Dundas Street is one of the city’s major artery roads, and is projected to make use of the upcoming Oakville bus rapid transit service.
The transit options from this location vary, as you can opt to take the 5 – Dundas bus route to Oakville’s Station, or make the short drive to the central terminal. The city in general is pretty well served by major routes. It boasts great access to the QEW and Highway 407 for trips going east and west, and trips going north and south are made easy by proximity to Highway 403.
Commuters in this area will also enjoy Oakville’s two GO Stations — Bronte Station and Oakville Station. The later is a mere 11 minute drive away, and doable 30 minute bus ride from the well placed development.
Travel is a key reason why Oakville is perfect for young professionals settling down to make roots for a family. This access to the city means working 9 to 5 in the Downtown core and being home by dinner extremely doable. After all, there really is something to be said about working in a career hub like Toronto’s Financial District or Entertainment District, then returning home to a waterfront suburb that provides some serenity after a day immersed in the dynamic hustle and bustle of the city.
