The newly envisioned Union Waterfront project, set on 1.5 acres, is planned as a multi-phased residential development with a retail component that brings connectivity between the picturesque Port Dalhousie waterfront and the City. The new pavilion creates an inviting walkway down to the waterfront, beaches and marina, while the residential component respects its heritage surroundings.

With an emphasis on materials and massing, the 170 residential units will range from 550 sq. ft. to over 1000 sq. ft., each with balconies or terraces that will offer breathtaking views across the lake. The 12-story building will offer ground floor retail that opens up into the pavilion and along the main street fronts, creating a vibrant community for residents and locals to enjoy all year round.

Developed by Fortress Real Developments, the project has retained Kirkor Architects to design the building, Land Art Design as the landscape architect and GBCA as the heritage architect. The planner on the project is IBI Group.

Project Updates

July 2016
In June 2016, Fortress unveiled the newly envisioned Union Waterfront project to local politicians and community stakeholders in St. Catharines. Set on 1.5 acres, the project is planned as a multi-phased residential development with a retail component that brings connectivity between the picturesque Port Dalhousie waterfront and the city. The new pavilion creates an inviting walkway down to the waterfront, beaches and marina, while the residential component respects its heritage surroundings. With an emphasis on materials and massing, the 170 residential units will range from 550 to 1,000+ sf, each with balconies or terraces that will offer breathtaking views across the lake. The announcement was well received and has garnered positive media with its vision of creating a vibrant community for residents and locals to enjoy all year round. The development team is now preparing to make first submissions to the city, and plans to be on schedule for a spring/summer 2017 sales launch of the residential units.
