The Balmoral Condos Oakville – April 2015 Construction Update
After a slow start to the Balmoral Condominium development, construction has been steadily progressing. The Balmoral is a luxury, low-rise condominium located at 2300 Upper Middle Road in Oakville part way between Bronte Rd and Third Line and backs onto a mature ravine.
Above is the street view of The Balmoral Condominium from the north side of Upper Middle Rd closer to Grand Oak Trail. The building is a mix of stone block and red brick with metal roofing on the front of the building.
Here is the east side of the Balmoral condo development looking west along the south side of Upper Middle Rd Oakville. You can see the ravine to the left of the building.
This closer view of the north exposure of The Balmoral Condos shows the traditional European architectural style of the complex being built by Legend Creek Homes in Oakville. The modern windows are accented with stone surrounds and keystone accents. The Balmoral sits upon a land assembly of single family homes that were demolished several years ago to make way for the 88 new condo suites in this luxury condo.
Here is the front entrance of the condo building taken from the driveway at 2300 Upper Middle Rd W Oakville. You can see the base paving of the driveway and curbs are in place. There is a circular drive up to the main lobby entrance. (Please excuse the porta pottys in the shot but I didn’t put them there)
Above is the west end of the condo building showing the south side or ravine side of the Balmoral condo building. You can see how the site slopes to the rear. Note the building does not have the same brick facade on the back side. It also has more traditional roofing shingles instead of the metal roofing material used on the street side.
Above is a closer look at the Balmoral condo building showing some of the terraces from the individual condo units.
Here is a panoramic shot of the south side of the building was taken from the walking trail that runs behind the Balmoral condominium building. This is part of the trail system in Glen Abbey and Westmount and connects to the other nearby trails running through this area of Oakville north of the QEW. I run on these trails often and the builder has done a nice job of upgrading this section of the trail. They have also planted many trees along this part of the trail and in the ravine – you can see some in the photo as well.
Another panoramic shot of the rear of the condo building. You can see the black iron fencing posts and more trees that have been planted.
Here you can see the trail winding behind the building and the many mature trees on the other side of the trail that were kept safe during construction. Well done.
This part of the building in the left side of the above photo shows the exit doors from the common library lounge on the main floor with stairs leading down to what will be a terrace.
Above is a better photo of the walking / running trail that runs behind the condo building. You can see the newly planted trees and extra landscaping that has been done to upgrade the trail.
Last but not least is the view of the scenic ravine that residents of the new Balmoral Condominium will enjoy. I will be sure to update the photos once the leaves have filled in on the trees.
