Thanks for that NParker!

 

What year is the building that is to-be taken down?

Here's a link to a very good history of the post office/customs building site. http://www.customsho...-April-2014.pdf

We can expect prices to near the $10-million mark for the top-end suite at this project.

Record-breaking condo prices expected at ultra-luxury Customs House development

http://victoria.citi...se-development/

 

On Wednesday evening Victoria’s top-tier REALTORS gathered at the Union Club to preview Cielo Properties’ plans to convert the historic Customs House building into luxury condominium residences and ground floor retail space.

 
Situated at the nexus of Government, Wharf and Humboldt streets overlooking the Inner Harbour’s lower causeway, Customs House will feature 57 upscale one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse residences with layouts sized between 618 and 4,442 square feet. Retail spaces will occupy approximately 16,000 square feet. [Full article]

I think that's the best image that I've seen of this one. It looks good. I like how the windows on the second floor are differentiated so as to suggest the upper portion of a very tall ground floor (the sort of ground floor that a grand historic building would have). Does anybody know what the silver/grey cladding would be on the very top floor?

I'm a big fan of the white stone/tile exterior, as long as it's kept clean. But I'm sure with the strata fees they'll be charging at this place hiring cleaners will be no problem.

That picture looks fabulous. Looks like a building that deserves to be on our harbour.

I think he's asking what the custom is re: "s" or no "s".

I like the look of it but its going to be well north of $1K/sq ft. Will it be a bolthole for affluent furriners?

Looks like the units are ranging from 618 square feet and from $489,900 so, some in the $792/sq.ft., not $1K sq.ft. neighbourhood.

That's for the urban view homes. The harbour view homes are a different matter, as is the penthouse collection which is expected for sell for north of $2,000 a square foot.

I was just looking at the floor plans. Whats the deal with the Jr. 1 Bedrooms on floor 3 and 4? They dont appear to be for sale to people like me, but they face inwards in a light well? Seems very strange no?

I'm not sure if they're online just yet. The plans were handed out in print at an event at the Union Club.

Just sign up on the website and they will email them to you.

 

Also looking closer there are shotgun style units with 'lock offs'. Self contained suites within a suite?!?!

Lotta misinformation on Facebook about this. People's general idea seems to be that greedy developers are destroying heritage Victoria buildings to make a quick buck. VV get out there and set the record straight
