There are a lot of buildings being built in the Greater Victoria Real Estate area and in British Columbia in general. First, let’s have a look at what is currently under construction here in Victoria:
Aria, is a residential & commercial two tower project with 12 stories in each building. Aria is located in the 700 block of Humboldt Street next to two completed projects; The Astoria and Belvedere. The new Marriott Hotel is also next door and of course we can not forget one of my favourite coffee shops, Cafe’ Mela (at the Belvedere). Aria will have 212 suites and is scheduled to be completed in 2008. In the first tower, they are now installing the windows, and the second tower is coming out of the ground. Looking Good.
Bayview (tower one), is a really high end residential building located at 100 Shagalie Road. This project will have fantastic views of Victoria’s inner harbour, the ocean and beyond. I was up on the 8th and 9th floor not too long ago and the views are incredible. The 10th floor of the 11th floor building is now under construction. The building will have 128 suites. Included in this phase are also 6 town homes. Two more towers and a 30,000 sqft recreation / spa / business centre will also be built. We sold some units in this project
Dockside Green – Synergy, this project is being built (10 phases) on Tyee Road on the Gorge Water Way at the mouth of Victoria’s inner harbour. It consists of several town houses and two residential towers, one eight story and one five story building. What is so special about the Dockside Green? It is being promoted as one of the most environmentally friendly projects in Canada and North America. We sold in this project, and you will read and hear a lot about the Dockside Green. Completion is scheduled for this year.
Dockside Green – Balance, this is phase two of the Dockside Green project and comprises of two residential towers, of 10 and 11 stories. It will have approximately 100 suites. Completion of this phase is planned for 2008.
Juliet, or The Juliet a Residential – Commercial 14 story tower is located at the corner of Blanchard and Johnson Street. This is a busy but very central location close to all amenities. The Juliet project will have 95 suites in total and completion is scheduled for 2008.
There are four more project under way and I will discuss them in my next blog.
