Based on the photos it looks like one more storey to go

Just imagine what that $10 million penthouse will look like. The quintessential Victoria view and location.


Don't be so sure.:cool:

$10.8M penthouse that's a short walk from, and directly overlooking, the provincial Parliament... I wonder who bought it.  :ph34r:

Peter Gustavson - (according to the developer)

Are we sure?

“What I can say is the purchaser and his wife have a long-standing affinity for Vancouver Island’s natural surrounds and particularly Victoria with its arts scene, its culinary experiences and its proximity to major centres like Seattle and Vancouver. Those aspects played a key role in the client’s decision to invest in the Customs House project and choose to make Victoria his home.”

- https://victoria.cit...ghts/?term=10.8

It doesn’t sound from that quote that Victoria is his existing home, but maybe that’s a bit of a ruse.

It’s definitely him - give your contact at Cielo a call if you’re interested in hearing it directly from the source

I just heard directly from the developer, and it’s not him.

But the developer would be happy with the opportunity to present the project’s available residences to Mr. Gustavson, should he be interested.

Some interesting geometries above L6. Does anyone know what type of surface restoration techniques they will be using?

Once this is all said and done I just don’t think Victorians will know what hit ‘em. The world's visitors will be photographing thing building as an example of old+new merging so well together.
