A project by Landlab

Lakeport Beach is a new Adaptive Development on the shores of Lake Ontario by Landlab Inc. It's a place to grow up, a place to work, and a place to retire. It’s a whole community where people have real connections to their neighbours when they want them, and lots of space for privacy when they don’t. After a number of years of broad community engagement, Landlab has updated the concept plan for Lakeport Beach to accommodate the constructive input we received. Features of this plan are detailed below, and you can learn more about the changes that were made here.

Map Lakeport Location

Lakeport Beach has been purposefully designed to encourage walking, play, recreation, social interaction, healthy lifestyles, and a sense of community. It will feature a mix of housing types, from single family homes and townhomes, to bungalows, small cottages, elevator-accessible flats, and ground floor one-storey units for seniors. Approximately 800 units are anticipated.

Places to walk and explore nature are at the heart of the community. More than 50% of the land at Lakeport Beach will remain green space–whether as forested areas with trails, large and small parks, natural playgrounds, or the 1.3 km of pebble beach along Lake Ontario. Everyone will be welcome to walk, play, sit in the parks, and enjoy the beach.

Landlab’s proposal for this complete community also includes a village-scale community hub where people can enjoy local shops and services. There is even potential for a small hotel. These amenities will be a short stroll or bike ride from all corners of the new community. Lakeport Beach is a place to live, work, and play.

Updated Concept Plan

green spaces

More than 50% of the land at Lakeport Beach will remain green space, whether it is forested areas, parks, or pebble beach. These will be truly public spaces, open to anyone who wants to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Everyone should be welcome to walk, play, sit in the parks, and enjoy the waterfront.

mix of housing types

Lakeport Beach will feature a range of housing options, including single family homes, semi-detached homes, townhomes, bungalows, elevator-accessible flats, ground floor one-storey units for seniors, as well as accessory dwelling units such as garden suites and coach houses. This mix allows for a broad range of price points, but also ensures the community includes residents of all ages, as a healthy community should.

Housing Mix Graphic Landscape


We believe that healthy communities include people from a range of incomes. We’re committed to offering 10% of Lakeport Beach homes at below market prices, so that modest-income households from Northumberland County will have the option of calling Lakeport Beach home. This will be in addition to offering a much wider range of housing prices than is currently available in the Township.

housing for seniors

Landlab will be offering several housing types to accommodate an older population: bungalows, 1-storey cottages, elevator-accessible flats, ground floor seniors’ units and accessory dwelling units such as garden suites and coach houses. These units would be spread throughout the neighbourhood, ensuring that seniors are at the heart of the action rather than isolated in one particular area.

pedestrian networks

It’s important to us that walkability and pedestrian networks are planned from the very beginning because they are critical to good community design. Lakeport Beach will benefit from a mix of sidewalks, alleyways, footpaths, footbridges, and staircases/ramps to ensure pedestrians can easily access all areas of the neighbourhood.

pocket parks

Green spaces are dotted throughout the neighbourhood in all our projects, so that all homeowners have easy access to nature close by. These pocket parks also make the pedestrian experience far more enjoyable, and create outdoor social spaces for the whole Township.

public beach

The Lakeport Beach project site has over 1.3km of pebble beach fronting Lake Ontario. We see an opportunity to provide the neighbourhood with a waterfront that’s open to the broader community, whether they live at Lakeport Beach or not.

waterfront park

To further add to the beautiful amenity that is Lake Ontario, we’ve designed a large public waterfront park that can be enjoyed as a green space every day, and also used for events or community gatherings as required. Lakeport Beach will ensure that Alnwick/Haldimand is even more strongly “united lake to lake.

village-scale commerce

Lakeport Beach’s plan for a complete community places commercial amenities at the heart of the neighbourhood. Village-scale commercial buildings will enliven the large waterfront park with space for local retail, restaurants and terraces, and professional services. There is also the possibility of a small-scale hotel. The placement of these commercial spaces is ideally located for serving those spending time along the water.
