A 4-storey condo called The Zen is planned for 1121 Fort Street near the downtown/Rockland border. The building will be built by Homewood.

Marketing has begun and the web site has been launched: http://www.zenvictoria.com/

There are commercials on CHEK too.

311-486 sq. ft. units starting at $180k.

Click on unit 204 or 304. http://www.zenvictor...floor_plans.php 311 sq. ft.? Would that be the smallest condo in all of Victoria? Is there a legal minimum?

This is a truly awe-inspiring piece of design. The Generica, indeed. Two thumbs up, Nparker!
In that spirit could we help out with some more titles to reflect the unique character of this one?

I'd like to offer The Banality.
If we want the euro-feel how about Chateau Boite?

The building is a bit bland, but not so much as to offend me. And the prices, very low!

Yes. For comparison, I have mine on the market for $332/sq. ft., brand new floors, brand new appliances, brand new paint. Mine comes with addl. storage and optional underground secure parking too. Zen don't.

I bought a presale 533 sq/ft condo at the834 for $370 per sq/ft......concrete building, rooftop. Right now you can buy at the Falls for less than $400 sq/ft on the lower floors with a parking spot. $538 is a little ridiculous.

The prices are low on a per unit basis. I mean 100,000 for 10 square feet would technically be low too.

I don't mind small units but when you get down towards 300 square feet that's getting pretty darned small.

Isn't this Rockland not Fairfield?

The Rockland neighbourhood boundary does intersect with Fort Street but not until a few doors further down the street. Linden Ave., I believe (so the Art Gallery is in Rockland).

Welcome to the forum! What is the estimated move-in date?

$370 is pretty good these days but almost $600 is way too much IMO.
I hear that Chard does good buildings though so his $370 may be as good or better than another developer's $450+.

How are you marketing? Used Victoria? Multiple listing with Realtor?

With so much inventory out there in the condo world I think MLS is the best way to attract an audience.
