It's good to see four storey townhouse/apartments like that. Much better than the two storey project built in the neighbourhood a few years back

I finally had a chance to pop into the Heritage House at the 1011 Burdett ave project today in Fairfeild. I must say the restoration job (still doing some touch ups inside) that has been done on the old house is outstanding!.. The fact that the developer used the same finishings in the house that will eventually be put in the building was a great idea as well.. I managed to take a few pics with my phone while walking through the house (sorry for the poor quality).. also looked like they were pouring the ground floor of the building today.. definitely a project to keep an eye on thats for sure. IMG_1946.jpg IMG_1947.jpg IMG_1948.jpg IMG_1951.JPG IMG_1952.jpg IMG_1953.jpg IMG_1954.jpg IMG_1949.jpg IMG_1950.jpg

I stopped by the showroom today and they've sold a number of units despite a lack of serious advertising.  The one thing that stands out with this particular development is every unit comes with a gas fireplace which hasn't been a very common feature lately.  

 

One bedrooms starting at $289,900 with parking or $533 a foot with parking. Not  too bad for Fairfield.

I've recently started really looking into Mountain West Properties' developments and I must say I really do like them. This and Waddington Alley Flats, big fan. Anyone know who the architect is of this project?

This building blocked the view of the mountains for us.  We had this nice little slice and now it's gone.  I'm going full Nimby,  never again can anyone build anything that will impact me in any way, no matter how trivial.

I would suggest calling 1-800-PAM-MDOF. Your concerns re losing you view will be given immediate priority. With a little luck perhaps the enormous height of this structure can be reduced to something more reasonable, say a 2-person camping tent?

I don't think Roger Tinney is an architect...he is an ex-saanich planner who now does development consulting.

WELL...I'm soooooo relieved I moved out of Fairfield in 2011 what with all the *towering developments* being foisted upon that poor and unsuspecting neighborhood. The gall...the temerity of some people! Just imagine, Change.......is happening. Now. This instant. In our corner of Paradise!!! For shame...honestly is no one thinking of the Sooke Hills?? Such a travesty.

 

Sadly for a certain element in this town this is not (too) far off the mark; I had just this conversation the other day with a colleague lamenting "all the changes" that have happened downtown....since 1971. Because, naturally, in 43 years nothing could (or should!) be different. Good grief. Fortunately I think this attitude is receding, albeit more slowly in some areas than others (North Saanich and Oak Bay come immediately to mind), but I think it is gradually disappearing. At least I hope so....

Did he include the closure of a major department store as one of the changes that have happened downtown? Or the closures of several movie theatres? Or the demolition of the Campbell Building and the Jones Building? People always seem to forget about stuff like that when they stew about the horrors of change. Positive change is bad and they'll complain about it like crazy, but negative change doesn't even make it on the radar.

 

The city's tallest historic office block was demolished? A large department store sat abandoned and neglected for several years? No problem, it's not as if these events actually changed downtown in any way.

 

But a new lowrise condo block on a parking lot? Drastic change! I don't even recognize Victoria anymore!

If the city protects view corridors (as it does, although not as aggressively as Vancouver), then yes, somebody does own a view. It is just the city, not the landowner or lease holder.

That should probably read "somebody can claim to own a view," because it's really not so simple. There's a difference between an officially declared view corridor and a view (and between a view and a glimpse, as I like to say). It would be impossible to count the number of views/glimpses that exist, whereas there are only a few officially declared view corridors. Also, nature can alter a view (or even a view corridor) dramatically over time, even across the seasons of the same year. My folks have a good view of Mt. Tolmie in the winter. But they can't see it at all when there are leaves on the trees. I once lived in an apartment that had a terrific view of two holes of a golf course, until a bunch of trees grew twenty feet taller and blocked it out. Who owned that view? Could I have sued mother nature for that? Or a dozen different property owners?

Bit of an update for anyone else who may have been considering buying here. I sent an email requesting more info about the 1 bedroom units and got the following reply:

 

"Thanks for your email. Recently, due to changing market conditions and to meet an increasing demand Mountain West Properties has decided that 1011 Burdett will now be offered as high end rental accommodation when complete later this year. As a result these homes will no longer be offered for sale. Developer is in the process of updating website and signage to reflect this."
