TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 20, 2012) - They say the best things come to those who wait and Port Place, several years in the making, is set to make a splash in the Golden Horseshoe region of Port Dalhousie.
This project represents a joint effort between lead developer PDVC, helmed by experienced builder Derek Martin, and Fortress Real Developments, a Richmond Hill based real estate firm.
A landmark in contemporary design, Port Place highlights the unique characteristics of a small Canadian heritage town while providing a premier opportunity for those seeking waterfront living along beautiful Lake Ontario in a vibrant yet peaceful setting.
"Port Dalhousie is one of Ontario's hidden gems," remarked Jawad Rathore, president of Fortress Real Developments. "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 with unspoiled views of Lake Ontario and Martindale Pond, this trendsetting 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. This project is envisioned as the start of a transformation that will revitalize this traditional Ontario hamlet into a sophisticated destination.
The Toronto Star recently took a tour of the site and spoke with Derek Martin and Brian Tilley of PDVC (Port Dalhousie Visualization Corp.) where both expressed their passion for this project.
"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." Derek Martin, president of PDVC.
"It's going to bring residential to the waterfront and bring tourism to the area with the theatre, the hotel and commercial space, so it really will become a year-round destination," reaffirmed Tilley. "A lot of local businesses only operate as summer businesses currently."
Port Place, a visionary development steeped in tradition and elegance, will add another chapter in the colourful history of Port Dalhousie. Rathore summed up the project, saying: "This project will help the area reach its full potential and show off all the area has to offer. Fortress Real Developments is honoured to be part of it."
Waterfront living, modern design and small town charm. Port Place is poised to be the development destination that everyone can cruise on over to and enjoy.
