Distrikt Trailside 2
While the core downtown of Toronto remains a centre for the city, new “downtown cores” are beginning to build up in the various boroughs of the GTA – new bustling city centres focusing on building up and urbanizing sections of the communities outside Toronto itself.
One such example is the heart of Oakville, an ambitious redevelopment is looking to create a denser, more urban city core, and maybe the best example of this is a new development by Distrikt Developments — Distrikt Trailside Condos, an exciting new project that will stand in the heart of Oakville at 407 Dundas Street West.
This mixed-use site, designed by Kirkor Architect + Planners will be a towering new landmark in Oakville and will contain a wide variety of suites and amenities for residents, making it a destination in and of itself in the new, urban Oakville.

- minutes from HWY 403/407 & QEW

Go Transit commuter rails and bus services operate within the city, providing a robust framework for commuters to get into the city, or to any one of the many other communities within the GTA. Two major stations, Bronte and Oakville are hubs for the city, and also connect residents to a local bus service – Oakville Transit, which runs over 20 different routes all year round.
Oakville’s closest neighbour, Mississauga is the home of Lester B. Pearson International Airport, and VIA rail runs trains through the city on it’s Windsor-Quebec corridor, both opening the city up to the entirety of North America, and the world.

Now is the perfect time to start looking at homes in Oakville. More and more people are flocking to the region as Toronto continues to expand. People are looking for an easily accessible place to live that’s just outside of the downtown core, yet still a destination unto itself.
In 2016, the census found that Oakville’s population was 193,832 residents, and expected that the community would increase in size, likely to about 250K by 2031. This kind of growth actually surpasses Toronto with over a 6% increase. This means more and more development is inbound for the charming city, from condos to master-planned communities and it means the return on investment opportunity is huge.
The focus will continue to be on improving sustainability, and increasing density, meaning that projects will be built to last, and will, therefore, increase property values more quickly and efficiently than some other projects. The current price of pre-construction condos sits within the $400K range, which is relatively affordable but also is expected to rise as Oakville continues to density.
With so many reasons to live in Oakville, it’s easy to see why the town is in such high demand, and as this population influx continues to play out, investors would be wise to get in on the action before it’s too late!
