AQUABLU Ground Breaking Celebration


AQUABLU brought great excitement with the official grand opening, selling over 85% over the last few months. The Ground Breaking Celebration on October 21st, was very well attended with hundreds of people coming out to celebrate the event. In attendance was Mayor of Grimsby Bob Bentley, who shared his enthusiasm for the project and spoke about the Town’s major investment in the waterfront redevelopment, and expressed excitement about the expected GO Train coming to Grimsby. He went on to laud the building’s strong aesthetic and attention to design detail. Several members of local council in attendance echoed the Mayor’s positive words. “A lot of attention has been paid to what’s going on in the GTA, but Grimsby is going through a tremendous renaissance. Grimsby may not get the same level of attention as the GTA, but with the waterfront investment and long-term demographics opportunities here are equally strong,” says Gabriel DeSantis. “My team has believed in our vision since the lands were acquired. We strive to bring the best and most talented individuals to our company who have the same belief as I, to continue to build Homes by DeSantis’s solid reputation of trust, while reaching industry milestones.”

It’s no surprise this community stands ahead of the competition. Lux and individual floor plans were designed for 1, 1+Den, 2 and 2+Den Residences providing buyers a variety of choice. With floor to ceiling windows to capture views of Lake Ontario and spacious balconies to enjoy the verdant spaces beyond. Exceptional building amenity areas including a sprawling sky lounge terrace, the soaring 2 storey lobby, fitness and yoga centre, the club room, games room and an ample underground parking lot for residents.


Enhancing all of this will be a custom sculpture located in the roundabout in front of the lobby entrance. A public art competition was held to develop this piece and an artist was announced at the Ground Breaking. A team of acclaimed artists from Toronto, Lynn Kelly and Xiaojing Yan, were the winners with a piece entitled Natures’ Bounty.
