Ah, so excavation/ground prep would have started in the fall of 2015, then, since the piles were already in the ground by the summer of 2016.

 

The site was cleared in summer/fall 2015. I mean it was cleared long before then originally, but in 2015 it was "cleared" back into pre-development state. The piles started going in summer 2016.

 

You could say that Year 0 was June 2015-June 2016, in which time a bunch of random soil testing/lot clearing/pre-development approval things were going on.

 

But ya, essentially this site was active for about 4 years in some shape or form.

Right. And the crane went up in January of 2017 so construction would have started just prior to.

Yes, the very first concrete pour was the underground wall along View Street in late fall 2016.

Does anyone have any photos of the inside of this project? Would love to see how they turned out in comparison to the renderings.

The pics appear to indicate a reasonably high level of finish.

Not sure that I care for the simplistic design aesthetic (is that "European" design?) or the exposed ductwork/raceways.

Leaves me a bit cold.

Is the Jukebox zoned for vacation rentals?

It is not.

In that case, I hope the city enforces its bylaws and shuts down these listings as it seems unfair to the property owners who have invested in vacation-rental-zoned properties and the licenses needed to operate in such spaces...

If you look at the details of those three units, they each state a minimum rental period of 30 days. Short-term rentals in Victoria are defined as anything under 30 days. So there's no bylaw offense here, as far as I know.

Enforcement is really difficult, as we have found out in Richmond. Basically, advertising is perfectly legal under the bylaw. Enforcement can only happen when someone is caught with a vacation tenant, and even then the bylaw officer has to be able to prove that the person will be there for less than 30 days.

Agreed, no infraction for minimum 30 day rentals.

Still a lot of demand for 30+ day rentals. Mostly education/employment related.

Thank you! Interesting they kept all of that exposed in the ceiling. 

Looks like they did the same to their Mosaic building on Fort (same developer).

Thanks to those who noticed the minimum 30-day rental requirement on the postings, I was incorrect for assuming that there was a contravention of city by-law occurring.  The formatting of the page (i.e. the calendar) had caused me to believe that short term rentals were possible through the site...

Yeah their site can be inconsistent listing to listing.

I have rented from them before and they are a legit vendor.

The newly completed Jukebox condominium, at 1029 View Street, is the latest development undertaking by Victoria-based Mosaic Properties Inc. The project's final sales release will launch as part of a two-day open house on Saturday and Sunday (September 14th and 15th) between 1 and 4PM at the project site.

 

First-time buyers: Open house to launch final sales of move-in ready Jukebox condos

 
A rare opportunity to purchase an affordable new-build, move-in ready concrete condominium in downtown Victoria’s highly desirable Harris Green neighbourhood will be on offer this weekend with the final sales release of Mosaic Properties Inc.’s Jukebox project.
 
Completed last month at View and Vancouver streets, the nine-storey, 215-suite development reached 80% sold-out status with the culmination of its last sales phase. This weekend’s launch of completed homes – priced with first-time purchasers and investors in mind – Jukebox’s remaining mix of studio, one-bedroom and one-bedroom plus-den layouts are uniquely positioned to draw individuals in search of an immediate acquisition.
 
“With construction officially behind us and a beautiful finished product available for homebuyers to tour and experience, we’re entering our last sales phase for The Jukebox and we’re very excited to welcome the public to our open house,” says Don Charity, a partner at Victoria-based Mosaic Properties Inc. “The Jukebox is a continuation of our long-standing commitment to building quality homes in Victoria and brings a modern, vibrant touch to one of Victoria’s most desirable neighbourhoods.”
 
Mosaic is hosting a two day open house at 1029 View Street on Saturday, September 14th between 1 and 4PM, and on Sunday, September 15th between 1 and 4PM. The public will have an opportunity to tour the building, its amenity offerings and suites, and to speak with sales staff. [Full article]

do you have a rough idea of price per square foot for what’s left?
