I think the demand for downtown has dropped a bit. I don't have any data to back it, but just a sense that the appealing part of downtown living isn't really here in 2020. I think the overall demand for condos is still doing well, but people aren't drawn to the city centre like they were last year. People are opting for more suburban areas.

 

My theory is that when tightly packed bars and dancing becomes a thing again, the demand for downtown living will also return.

 

I get the same feeling, people aren't willing to pay a premium to be downtown necessarily.

Nope, not this year. Where downtown is still doing well is it has the most variety of product and the whole gamut or quality for people to choose from, and move-in ready.

But now Esquimalt Town Square is coming into play, Tresah is coming into play, Westbay Quay, Belmont Residences and Sparrow, etc, are coming into play. Traditionally the market would have been slower to respond to these projects but 2020 changed that. Even Sidney will see an uptick in demand all while fewer jets fly overhead which will make that part of town even more appealing.

Know it all.

Hi folks, since construction start of Vivid and Yates on Yates, I've been collecting all of the publicly posted photos as well as my own photos into a single album that tracks the building as it goes up.

Figured some others might be interesting in perusing the photos. They should be in chronological order so it forms a nice timeline. (241 photos)

https://photos.app.g...fbAGqbfcJnNQyL8

I think most of the photos are from Brantastic, myself, Dkuitu, Citified and a few others I may have forgotten. Credit and thanks to all of them.

If you see one of your photos in there, let me know and I'll add your name to this post or take down the link if you prefer. (I don't normally do social media and photos so I'm not too sure of the etiquette)

I was thinking the same thing. A bit squishy and it kind of looks like the backside of some office where everyone takes their smoke breaks or something.

It does look a bit tight on space. Maybe replacing the tables and chairs along that one side with some built-in benches against the inside wall would help. Will there ever be that many people dining up on the roof at one time anyway?

Those buyers do know the lack of jets flying around is temporary, right? :D

not many people use rooftop communal decks anyway. for all the same reasons they don’t use party rooms etc. plus additional ones like wind and weather.

Promontory Kingpin, any chance we can get a few more photos of the rooftop and possibly a pic of the Vivid from that vantage point?

Looks like there was a water leak in Yates on Yates (Phase 1) that has delayed construction. Anyone have any more details/updates regarding this? Move in was supposed to start in November I thought but probably not now?

I won’t be able to get up there anytime soon due to the ongoing work unfortunately. Drone footage would be nice though, maybe some one could fly one above the development

Heard from a drywaller a couple of weeks ago that there was a leak on the 8th floor, so he was going to work at YOY for a couple weeks before moving to Vivid. Not sure how extensive, but likely 8th floor down x number of floors. Not huge but no one doubt several units at least.

Here's what the layout of the Vivid roof is supposed to be.
