Apparently, Oakville's not just for retirees anymore.
That's the assumption behind Stephen Teeple
for a condo the marketers have called Op Art, which goes on sale this week.
"The client definitely was looking for something more youthful," Teeple says of Neilas, the Toronto developer behind Cube and Stage East. "Oakville is not as straightforward and flat as one might think. There's a lot of use there, vibrancy, an active downtown. They wanted something that would offer something different."
The two 10-storey towers set on a podium are made of precast concrete, which allowed Teeple to play with the shapes, which he expressed in black and white. Though not really producing the trompe l'oeil
its name would suggest, the building does have a distinctive, and distinctively modern, design for staid old Oakville.
The 188 units, with interiors done by Cecconi Simone
, start at around $250,000, further ingratiating the building with its youthful target demographic.
