Shovels will break ground within a few weeks to launch a $35-million condo tower development in East Riverside — the largest such project of its kind in Windsor in more than a dozen years.
The Eastside Horizons condominium project will be located on vacant lands on the southwest corner of Banwell Road and Firgrove Drive. It will include 180 units overall — 60 each inside three seven-storey buildings.
To be able to bring this investment to Windsor is special
The primary feature will be entry-level pricing geared to attract first-time home buyers, young professionals, retirees and investors. Units will range in price from $259,900 for a one-bedroom up to $329,900 for a two-bedroom unit, according to Wing-on Li, CEO of Toronto-based Horizon Investment Holdings Ltd., the company behind the project.
“We want people to enjoy living in a brand-new condo at an affordable price,” he said.
Li indicated his company began seriously considering investing big in the Windsor market roughly within the past year. The development will be located on vacant land previously owned and purchased by his firm from the Fanelli Group.

The project will be built on property that covers 3.4 acres, while each of the individual condo units will range in size from 886 sq. ft to 1,230 sq. ft., he said.
“For us, Toronto has become overwhelmed in terms of pricing,” Li said. “It’s beyond the ability of most buyers. We saw a rare opportunity in Windsor with more advantages (for investing) than Toronto.
“The last five years, the market in Windsor has really recovered — and it has especially picked up the last two years. Prices are still going up, but it’s still affordable for development. We see this as a great opportunity. The land is shovel ready and we are launching at a time when inventory (at this price range) is very low.”
Interested buyers will be able to purchase units at a price “that’s not beyond their reach,” he said.
The sales agents for the project will be LC Platinum Realty Inc. which worked for two years on helping to bring the investment to Windsor.

“Everybody knows there is super-high demand for homes starting in the $250,000 range,” said Maggie Chen, broker of record and owner of Platinum. “But there is very low inventory. We see the need for many families. Not just for young families, but also retirees or people moving here from out-of-town.”
Her company pushed for the investment by the Toronto company to be made within the borders of Windsor.
“To be able to bring this investment to Windsor is special,” Chen said. “This is a good city and we want to have more people to have a home of their own inside Windsor.
“We have been listening to the market and this is what people have been saying they want and need.”
Contractor for the project will be Markham-based Blockwood Construction Ltd., although several local subcontractors are expected to be involved in project.The Collavino Group is already listed as a partner.

“I am excited to see someone like this come forward who sees an opportunity and recognizes the nature of our economy,” Dilkens said.
“When you are talking about $35 million and 180 units, that’s an important and very welcomed investment in our community.”
“This is very important because it fills a niche in the condo market and for people in that area of East Riverside,” the mayor said. “We have a very low vacancy rate, so anything that adds to our housing stock is also very welcomed.”
