Friday Harbour
— Advertorial —

Proximity to The City is Just One of Its Advantages

“We’ve been planning for 13 years. And for the last three years, we’ve been preparing a golf course, an inland marina on Lake Simcoe and a nature site,” explains Rumm. “It’s all about creating a place for people to enjoy 12 months a year.”

For residents of Friday Harbour, the appeal is a chance to head north and enjoy the peace and serenity of a relaxing getaway without the hassle of a long drive or taking care of a high- maintenance cottage property. “It truly is a place you can come and leave your stress and worry behind.”

At the heart of Friday Harbour will be the Marina Village. “We’re just about to build the village boardwalk — 12 buildings that will house over 550 residential units,” Rumm says. “The boardwalk will have over 50,000 sq. ft. of specialized shops and great restaurants.” The condo units are all elevated on a giant platform; owners will reside above the boardwalk and the village shops and restaurants.
