That's correct, the only remaining unit for sale is the Carr Penthouse (NE-facing) listed at $799k I believe.

I see the siding is definitely more orange/wood tone than the yellow shown in the rendering.

I was hoping that was another layer of building wrap.  :eek:

Is it the same grey and orange that they have at the Olympic village?

Nope.. I like that combination, a brighter vibrant orange would have been preferable, but this is a brownish orange.. burnt orange, don't know exactly what it's called, or why the change.

 

Here's a shot I took today which shows it perhaps a little more clearly:

You know what, the orange could end up being a lot more interesting than the usual red brick or beige. I have been a big proponent of more colour on new builds for years.

Methinks a strong splash of colour or some interesting material would make a huge difference re: Concert's building for the motel site.

I took a close-up look the other day.  That brown/orange surface is very nice looking.  While I was watching a dump truck was dropping of a bit load of stones, that they lifted to the roof.  No idea, they were fair sized.  2 and 3".  Maybe for landscaping up there or a fire pit etc.

 

Do we have any Escher buyers following this thread?  Pipe up with your thoughts on the project!

Chard's buildings really challenge that oft-heard complaint re: all new condo buildings look the same. Considering the constraints re: the small footprints of these sites and Victoria's strict height restrictions, there's quite a lot of variety there.

Right here, and I'm liking the look.  Recent communication from Chard predicts early March move-in.

Cool! I hear the last unit remaining is one of the penthouses (or at least one of the upper level 2BR's) facing northeast.

Pebbles have been spread on the roof in non-patio area.  Maybe part of rain catchment system?
