They are selling very well given the overall market in Sooke.

Grand Opening resulted in about 2000 people showing up. Weather held off and it was well received.

Here is the latest photo shoot of one of the Penthouse Units.

2000 people showed up? Methinks that is a bit of an exaggeration? I love this project but really now. 2000 people??

I can for sure say that they went through 500 hot dogs and 500 hamburgers. Many people didn't wait to eat or eat at all, the line was pretty big. Maybe 2000 was a little high, but well over 1000 and I would say that is a safe estimate erring on much more, but I can see why it might be hard to believe. :)

Thats a lot of hot dogs and hamburgers but then free food is always an attraction. Any property sales?

I don't work in the real estate part of it, so I cannot tell you if any contracts were written up. I'm just contract for marketing and design, sorry.

As a family we took a drive out to see homes at Sun River this weekend and went into Sooke to take a look around. We were surprised at the location of this Mariners Village development. Its on the water right in the middle of "downtown" Sooke. A condo is too small for us but we did tour one of their townhouses and were very impressed with the quality of finishings. Prices seemed a tad high for Sooke but they say that they have a new building coming soon with prices less than $200,000 (for a condo not a townhouse I assume).
Worth checking out if you are out that way. They even have a whale watching business operating right off of their docks. We are booked for next weekend and the kids are super excited!!

Glad you liked the development. Yes, the pricing for "Phase A" of Merchant's Landing will be well priced and they are for condos. The condos will be above the commercial space and in total will have over 110,000 sq.ft. of retail space. Things like boutique stores, medical, health wellness, market etc. will be the target businesses. Also part of Phase "A" is a pub and restaurant located on the docks.

Enjoy your whale watching trip next week. You'll have a blast with Russ!

I have some friends who made the unfortunate decision to purchase in this building and were among some of the first people to occupy it. While the location is nice (if you don't mind the commute from Sooke), and some of the features are very nice and high end, it seems the developer has lost interest in finishing out their building, as the decks and storage areas (among more) have been sitting idle and unfinished for over a year now to the great frustration of many owners.

So question for Marko or anyone else who knows - Is there any legal requirement for the builder to finish out a development or building to any certain degree? Or will Mariners village become the next Aquattro?

I am sure that the developer did not 'lose interest'. Most developers are losing their shirts.

How did the building get occupancy if the decks are unfinished? Inspectors are fairly anal about the deck membrane, railings, etc.

Regarding storage areas the owners need to look to the disclosure statement that they received and had 7 days to review when they purchased. A large portion of buyers never read the disclosure statement.

If the developer is not providing something that is stated in the disclosure statement I think they would have a case.

Doesn't matter if you are losing your shirt or not, as a developer you still have obligations.
