Muskoka Wharf is an 89-acre commercial and residential centre: a “celebration of Gravenhurst’s unique and varied heritage.” Redeveloped in 2005, the Wharf is home to waterfront restaurants, dozens of retail stores and local businesses, ice cream shoppes, mid-rise condominium buildings, a Marriott Residence Inn, The Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre, and Muskoka Steamships. RMS Segwun, North America’s oldest running steamship, is Muskoka’s number one tourist attraction.
The Wharf is also home to some of the area’s signature events, including the largest farmers’ market in Muskoka, Dockside Festival of the Arts, and Muskoka Lakes Association’s Antique Boat show.
While the Wharf has had a tremendous impact on the town, it has never reached its potential. In Q4 2017, we acquired the largest, undeveloped waterfront property in the wharf: an estate with 400 feet of shoreline, riparian rights, and unique, mixed-use zoning. We are working with the Town of Gravenhurst to redevelop parts of the wharf and infuse the area with the character and energy it was originally intended to exhibit – starting with our property.
We are currently developing plans for a six-storey residential complex equipped with ground floor commercial space, public recreational space, and waterfront restaurants.
