The Saw Whet by Caivan is a modern, 6-storey, boutique-style condominium residence located in the exclusive Glen Abbey Encore community in South Oakville – set to launch soon. Nature-infused parks, connective walkways, and multi-use trails are ready for residents to enjoy. Notably, Glen Abbey Encore is surrounded by natural woodlands, with Bronte Creek Provincial Park and the 16 Mile Creek Natural Heritage Systems surrounding the neighbourhood.
The community location is perfectly situated near the urban hubs of Toronto and Mississauga, and offers quick access to major transportation links such as the QEW, Highways 403 and 407, as well as GO Transit access at Bronte station. South Oakville offers a thriving downtown shopping and entertainment district and is in close proximity to The Saw Whet. There you will find an eclectic mix of shopping, dining and the arts. Lake Ontario waterfront parks and beaches – such as Coronation Park – are also easily accessed.
Boasting 333 suites, from studios to large three-bedroom suites, The Saw Whet is a much-anticipated collaboration led by one of Ontario’s largest award-winning developers, Caivan, design firm KIRKOR Architects, interior design experts at Figure3, and renowned landscape architects at NAK Design Strategies.
The community name pays homage to the diminutive Saw Whet owl that is indigenous to the area and is just one of the ways in which the community emphasizes its strong connection to its breathtaking natural surroundings. The Saw Whet provides all the benefits of condominium living within an outstanding setting of lush parkland, picturesque riverscapes and manicured golf course fairways.
Inside, visitors will be awestruck by a dramatic and carefully designed lobby that sets the tone for the building’s design philosophy: Defined by natural materials and providing an exploration of textures, transparencies and layering that draws in and diffuses light.
The Saw Whet is a shining example of the harmonization of sustainable building consideration with the performance requirements of a contemporary and uncompromising condominium. Suites will feature geothermal heating and cooling, with in-suite high efficiency heat pumps; the garage will have EV-charging ports; and residents will have access to smart building and cutting edge in-suite technology. The building will collect rainwater for re-use in the irrigation system and will feature a green roof.
The Saw Whet features thoughtfully considered amenity programming. This includes an expansive outdoor rooftop terrace, meticulously designed ground floor courtyard, spacious party room, state-of-the-art gym, and a fully equipped and generously designed co-working area.

Parkview, a Caivan community located at Settlers Rd. E. and Post Rd., has sold out already after a short few days on the market. As a development partner and builder at Lakeview Village, set on the Mississauga waterfront, Caivan will be extending its GTA condominium pipeline to several exciting launches that are nothing less than transformative.
