As someone old enough to remember a time when being the wrong race or religion meant one couldn't buy one's choice of property no matter how much cash you might have, I am pleased that money is now the only real requirement.  Its a lot easier to raise more cash than to change who you are.  With it, it matters not race, religion, social class, sexual orientation, income range and stability, and so forth.  So much more democratic.  Besides, I can console myself that compared to some cities, $1000/sq. ft isn't that bad.  Okay, maybe a bit high for something not on the water.

For a city as small as Victoria, $1,000/sqft is pretty bonkers even if this development is not meant for plebs. But that's the way she goes under current housing conditions.

Why should we expect brand new concrete condos, in the heart of our rapidly revitalizing downtown, in what will be one of the city's tallest buildings, to be "affordable"?

Affordable stuff will be wood frame low-rise stock out of the city centre.

One block of traffic on Yates was closed this morning due to construction at this site; perhaps the crane is to be erected soon?

Expansive views are of the many highlights at Chard Development's 20-storey Yates on Yates condominium tower currently under construction along the 800-block of Yates Street. The building's exclusive Signature Penthouse Suites collection represent the pinnacle of Chard Development's decade-plus dominance over downtown Victoria's condominium housing market.
 
Estates in the sky: Chard Dev goes luxury with Yates on Yates tower's Signature Penthouse Suites

https://victoria.cit...nthouse-suites/

 

The final release of luxury penthouse residences at Chard Development’s Yates on Yates condominium tower have been revealed as some of the most upscale boutique homes ever presented for sale in downtown Victoria, Citified has learned.

 
The Yates on Yates’ collection of three 19th and 20th-floor Signature Penthouse Suites represent the créme de la créme among the Capital’s real-estate offerings with high-end finishings, expansive two and three-bedroom floor plans, private outdoor patio spaces and unimpeded views towards Victoria’s natural surrounds.
 
“The Yates on Yates is a culmination of every project we’ve undertaken and every best-practice we’ve developed,” says Dave Chard, president of Chard Development. “We’ve taken every effort to design our penthouse suites to stand the test of time, to maximize living spaces and to take advantage of gorgeous views of Victoria, the Salish Sea and mountain ranges beyond.” [Full article]

Short of gold faucets, what more can be done within Victoria’s tightly controlled development environment? The developer also has to be realistic for this market and what top-tier buyers are searching for.

I think the amount of glass in that image is pretty impressive.

The word "luxury" is as meaningful as the word "affordable" these days

It’s been pretty beat up with literally every new building being dubbed “luxury,” for sure. Many affordable rentals I’ve seen completed over the last few years are literally on par with what some politicians would label “luxury condos.”

Maybe the industry should come together and voluntarily agree on what would constitute 'luxury' and developers will only use that term for projects that meet those qualifications...?

If it has 5 appliances and "modern" finishes then it gets the luxury label slapped on, which is a low bar for new-build but makes total sense when you've lived in a place with no dishwasher and no clothes washer or dryer in the building  ;)

I hear the word luxury being slapped on everything these days.  I had one developer saying how luxury the building was meanwhile the cheap sinks were already starting to rust prior to move it.  That was on a downtown Victoria high rise condo building in the last 10 years

 

Its the little things that add luxury like min 10' ceilings, tall baseboards, non drywall window returns, tall solid core 1 3/4 thick doors with nice hardware, in floor heat in the bathrooms, remote control window blinds better yet on timers, crown mouldings.

In my opinion there's really only about 5 true luxury buildings in Victoria:  

 

* Bayview 1

* Shutters

* Falls

* Shoal Point (although very dated now)

* Customs House

Just curious, what makes you place Shutters and Falls above Sovereign, Belvedere and Aria?
