The South Shore

- by Fortress Real Developments

This waterfront development on the south shore of Lake Simcoe’s Cook’s Bay in the Keswick community of the Town of Georgina is now under construction. Georgina is located within the Region of York, on the border of the Greater Toronto Area.

The first building in the first phase of The South Shore is a 5-storey, 88 unit condominium apartment called the ‘Grand Marina’, the second building “Harbourview” is 5-storeys and 67 units. The team at In2ition Realty launched Harbourview in April of 2017. The site includes five acres of protected bird and nature lands, private docks off the Maskinonge River, and a private beach. Plans are in place to pursue LEED green building certification. The project will include an indoor pool, fitness centre, party room with kitchen, and sauna among the common amenities. Additional phases will include a mixed-use commercial and residential building and a separate full service hotel.

The South Shore is fully zoned and approved, with initial shoreline construction work completed in the summer of 2013, and site servicing beginning in 2014. Suites in both phases range from 655 sf to 1,403 sf and feature one bedroom plus den to three bedroom plus den designs – outdoor terrace space ranges up to approximately 850 sf. Homes at South Shore are available from $440s to over $1 million.

Following a busy summer of foundation preparation, opening a new sales office and reviewing construction contract bids, we now have steel piles on site with pile work to continue through the winter. Above grade construction will start immediately after that to build out this stunning waterfront development.
