Our Developing City

While the season is changing, the housing boom continues in this great city. It was recently reported in Citified that over 1,200 high-density homes, in the form of market condos, market rentals, and affordable rental apartments, are in various stages of construction in Greater Victoria. Previously we featured the micro condo development called The Janion, which will offer more compact units right in the pulse of downtown. We also looked at 1011 Burdett Avenue, featuring executive-style condo units in the beautiful Fairfield neighbourhood.

There are so many more up and coming properties in the city, it’s hard to keep track of them all. So we love how Citified summarized the residential construction projects. From full-rental buildings like 1075 Pandora to mixed-use buildings like Capital Park, we’re excited to see the changes and opportunities for buyers and investors alike.

One of the many properties with construction underway is The Emerson, located in the ever-popular Fairfield neighbourhood. Created by Abstract Developments, this property will feature 14 luxurious one and two bedroom condo units spanning four storeys. Unit sizes will range from 650 to 1,000 square feet, each with a dedicated parking stall. This development offers the appeal of the downtown lifestyle and the Cook Street community-feel. Not far away are fantastic attractions like Craigdarroch Castle and the Royal BC Museum as well as magnificent parks with beautiful views of Washington State’s Olympic Mountains and the endless ocean.
