The Harbour Club has resort-style living in Port Dalhousie
What’s old is new again at the one-of-a-kind loft conversion project – The Harbour Club in Port Dalhousie. An iconic building, which was once a factory throughout the 1900s, is being transformed into condo lofts.
As part of the fabric of this community, this out-dated structure will be given new life. It once housed the Maple Leaf Rubber Co., until Lincoln Fabrics assumed ownership in 1955 and operated until 2017. “There is an undeniable mystique within these heritage walls that is about to be unveiled at last,” says Sheldon D. Rosen, president, Port Dalhousie Harbour Club. “From the moment you walk into the grand entrance, residents will be greeted by a concierge in a beautiful, bright lobby, where the decor is reflective of the boating lifestyle, featuring sail cloth ceilings that offer a contemporary club-like atmosphere, steeped in nautical tradition.”
New interiors will capture the traditional elegance of the century-old building. “Artisans will restore the high ceilings and arched windows, and the thick, brick walls will be brought back to life,” says Rosen.
Moving on up
Located in a new nine-storey building, will be the Harbour Estates Penthouse Collection. Units here, will be crafted as an expression of elegance and refined aesthetics. Generous designs are appreciated by those who are looking to downsize – but not too much. A three-bedrom, plus den, unit spans 2,300 square feet, and includes a 1,237-square-foot terrace.
These incredible two-storey penthouses will provide an open-concept feel, with the main living and entertainment areas situated on the lower level, and the bedrooms on the second floor. Soaring ceilings, dramatic spaces and marvellous panoramic water views are just some of the features. The penthouse collection will range in size from 1,100 to 2,400 square feet, with the option to expand even bigger. “The seasoned design team made each of the lofty penthouses feel like a fine estate home,” says Carmen Campagnaro of Valour Capital/Pro Funds Mortgages in Burlington.
All residents of The Harbour Club will have exclusive access to a lavish lounge with a fireplace and a large-screen TV, as well as a private dining room. Club members will have the opportunity to purchase individual boat slips, which allows them to sail right up to their residences.
As part of the master plan for mixed-use space, there will be seven ground level live/works lofts. Dedicated professional and commercial units front Lakeport Road, but the high-ceilinged residential portion of the suites will face the water.
The average size of most units is 1,200 square feet, and prices range from $500,000 up to two million.
