The Sovereign | 11-storeys | Residential, commercial
Return to the Construction Projects list.
Chard Development’s fourth Victoria project (after Corazon, Juliet and The 834), dubbed The Sovereign, is situated in downtown Victoria’s old town district and will become the tallest building west of Douglas Street.
The original design featured extensive brickwork, a curved feature for the top two floors (originally the tower was to be 12-storeys tall) and potential uses as a residential and commercial development or a boutique hotel and commercial development.
The finalized design calls for 36 residential units and commercial space on the bottom floor. Two automated car elevators, the first of its kind in Victoria, will be used for The Sovereign’s parking facilities.

The topping-off ceremony was held today for The Severeign. Below are several photos taken from the rooftop common area.
The project is now 60% sold out.

The crane hoisted up concrete for the ceremonial topping-off concrete pour.
Councillor Chris Coleman and Dave Chard dealing with a little bit too much ceremonial concrete. Oops.
A look at the door of one of the two car elevators. A sign of things to come and I'm certain other projects will incorporate this technology once it proves itself at The Sovereign.
