Condo Review: Union

Vancouver-based Anthem Properties has made its Victoria development debut with the Union, a two building lowrise condo project between the 500-blocks of Pandora Avenue and Fisgard Street in Old Town’s amenity rich Chinatown district. The Union property, left barren for nearly a decade after the failure of a previous condo development, is a stones throw from the Inner Harbour and literally at the nexus of a rapidly changing and increasingly desirable historic area.

I suppose the high-end small grocery store idea for the Parkside project up the street has fizzled out.

Too bad that they plan to get rid of the patio. So will there be no outdoor seating in the new version?

When you walk into the hotel, the restaurant is on the right, the lounge left. Each has a patio.

Me confused. So will the patio on the corner there be eliminated or not?

^There's only one patio in front of the lounge/ hotel. The kitchen backs onto the restaurant.

Had a chance to visit the Shangri La Urban Fare last week. What a rip. Less selection than a regular Safeway, at astronomically higher prices. I would steer clear of using that model. High end fare, fine. As along as it's not just the same marked-up crap you can get anywhere else.

Urban Fare is an expensive Save-on-Foods (they're both run by Pattison)

Me confused too. I'm usually drunk when I go there, I thought that as you enter that on the left was a seperate lounge from the restaurant. I'll go check it out tonight.

^There is a separate lounge.

You enter the restaurant from the lobby of the hotel. On your right is the restaurant and behind that is the kitchen. On your left is the lounge and then the patio.
Alternatively, if you're standing outside - facing the restaurant - first is the patio, then inside is the lounge, then the restaurant, then the kitchen.
