A Google Timeline of Eau Du Soleil

We just love seeing the transformation happening in South Etobicoke at Eau Du Soleil, and apparently Google does too. We came across these Google Street View shots dating back to 2011 where you can see the just how far the corner of Lake Shore Blvd W. and Marine Parade Drive has come in the last few years.

Google Street View captured a photo of the last motel of Etobicoke’s legendary Lakershore strip. During the 1950s and 1960s, this area was a hot spot for holidaying families from all over the GTA. Here’s what the site looked like in 2011 just before development plans began.

The first hoarding for Empire’s Eau Du Soleil project went up around the Beach Motel site in 2012.

In 2014, the Beach Motel is demolished and our first crane is visible from the street as well as our updated hoarding.
