The project also featured the renovation of the restrooms and showers with new architectural glass tile, granite counters and fixtures; new spacious catering area with all warm site lighting; new plush pool furniture and table and chairs for entertaining. The Pool Deck also features built in barbeque islands with patio dining and a full-service Cabana.

“We have received an overwhelming amount of positive comments and feedback from Harbor Club homeowners and their guests. We are very pleased with the final product delivered by BSD Builders Inc. as their various contractors were able to work around our daily operations, which allowed homeowners to enjoy their daily lives with minimal disruption during course of construction,” said Raj D’souza, Harbor Club General Manager.

“Throughout the design phase of the project we were able to increase our deck space by relocating existing planter walls and adding several signature items such as a fire-water feature; a black granite wall fountain; a larger spa and a new LED lights system that changes color throughout the evening to set just the mood for any occasion. Homeowners are pleased with the signature areas and design layout of the sixth floor pool deck, as these areas allow them to feel like they are entertaining their guests on their very own private patio. We would also like to express our thanks to our Landscape Architect, David Reed, for the design and KAVANAGH associates which provided construction management of the project,” he said.
