Niagara has become the fastest growing real estate market in the country. Average sales prices are up over 30%, with the new average sales price sitting at $403.124. This increase is thought to be a result of Toronto-based families moving further and further out of the GTA to find affordable places to live. The market demand in Niagara will only continue to rise.

St. Catharines is Niagara largest city, home to a population of over 130,000 residents. It’s a city in the midst of a downtown revitalization and is buzzing with new residential development. Total starts in Niagara are rising with volumes reaching 1800-2000 in 2016.

Those looking to invest in a residential development in the booming Niagara market, have a new opportunity in St. Catharines' downtown perimeter. Located 4km from downtown, the parcel at 55 Oakdale Avenue offers developers +/- 5.9 acres of prime residential development land. With close proximity to park land and major commercial nodes, this site is well-suited for townhomes or condominiums.
