The Occasion of the Century


As the sun takes its trip around the world marking another year in history, 2022 is proving to be more hopeful than those in recent passing. This year, DeSantis Homes celebrates Grimsby’s momentous centennial with the launch of its newest boutique condo community, aptly named Century Condos.

Perfectly situated on historic Main Street East, tucked between restaurants and shops, Century Condos is a heritage inspired boutique residence offering 87 suites. It was of critical importance to consider the input of both heritage consultants and experts as well as the local planning staff. “We at DeSantis Homes continue to push the envelope on every project, creating unparalleled living environments characterized by world-class architecture and extraordinary interior design.” says Gabriel DeSantis, President of DeSantis Homes.

Enhanced architectural details with curved windows, alternating brick facades to blend with the existing building frontages, authentic limestone and wrought iron elements have been incorporated into the elevations. The building has been designed with a complementary blend of 1 Bedroom, 1 + Den, 2 Bedroom, and 2 Bedroom + Den designs. New spacious commercial units along Main Street East at ground level represent an opportunity for new restaurants and retail.

Century Condos is an innovative and integrated community that will be the first of its kind in Grimsby. The buildings heating and cooling will be provided via a geothermal system. This eco friendly feature paired with the advanced building automation powered by DeSantis Smart Suite, is expected to save 134 metric tonnes of annual carbon dioxide emissions, save over one million litres of water and reduce energy costs for future residents making Century Condos the right choice for those looking to lessen their environmental footprint while maintaining personal comforts.  

As 2022 marks the 100th year for Grimsby as a town, we take time to remember the beginning.  Even before the town was established in 1922, farmers were drawn to this bucolic countryside where desire met reality in the arable land and ideal vegetation climate reaping the freshest fruits. This is still evident today in the local produce, usually enjoyed just steps away from Century Condos during the warmer months on Main St East, when the weekly Farmers Market is open. This tradition of the downtown Farmers Market demonstrates the strong sense of community that exists in Grimsby. It’s a place to shop for the sought-after local produce, meat, baked goods, participate in special events, or perhaps just sit on the patio at a local restaurant and enjoy the setting. The town underwent tremendous growth in the early 20th century, when the tender-fruit industry was booming, and the downtown featured an electric railway line carrying both passengers and freight running along Main Street between Hamilton and Beamsville. Similar to the effects the future GO Station will have to the area once implemented on Casablanca Blvd down the street, Grimsby is on the precipice of considerable expansion. Just as it was 100 years ago.

With Century Condos launching this Spring, DeSantis Homes is certain that Grimsby can now be your new home for years. It’s your Town. It’s your Time. Own this Century.
