No coronary on my part, but I have to ask, what is the issue with marketing WQ as being in Esquimalt? Could it be that outside of VV E-Town is still not a big selling feature?

It’s on Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

It’s not a big deal.

^That's Greater Victoria's Inner Harbour! Of which the Township of Esquimalt is just as much a member agency as the City of Victoria.

 

In all seriousness though, Nparker raises a good point. Certainly less of a marketing appeal to say Esquimalt over Victoria, I'd imagine. You wouldn't see that in Oak Bay, would you?

Nope, Abstract marketed their building on the Victoria side of Fort and Foul Bay as being in Oak Bay

 

On another note I heard recently that demolition of the existing houses should commence shortly.  Sorry, no one told me an exact date

Technically, it's just beyond the outer harbour and specifically on Esquimalt's section of West Bay

All of the foliage/trees on this site have been cut down and piled up for removal this week. Clears the way for equipment to come in a demolish the existing structures.

5% down, other incentives launch as Westbay Quay condo reaches sales milestone

https://victoria.cit...ales-milestone/

 

The harbourside Westbay Quay condominium development is celebrating a sales milestone as developer Tenfold Projects readies for site preparations ahead of construction, Citified has learned.

 
The three-building complex slated for the nexus of Lyall and Head streets next to the Inner Harbour's Westbay Marina is leading the development charge in Victoria’s neighbouring municipality of Esquimalt as developers flock to the district amid growing demand for its waterfront properties and proximity to downtown Victoria.
 
“Coming out of the summer months Westbay Quay was suddenly on everyone’s radar as an oceanfront residential community offering views from a vantage point that is arguably one of the most sought after in the region,” said developer Max Tomaszewski. “When individuals who’ve shopped various pre-sale opportunities walk into the presentation centre and reflect on the project, the sales process shifts from selling the location to helping purchasers identify their ideal suite and views. It may be cliché to say, but in our case the location sells itself.”
 
Throughout the first two weeks of fall Tenfold sold-out the Lapis Building, a two-storey all-concrete complex with live-work residences, while sales at the larger six-storey Topaz – offering sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains, the Salish Sea and unmatched vistas towards downtown Victoria with the Inner Harbour as its proverbial red carpet – pushed the overall project’s sold status to nearly 30%.

20% price reduction on the ground floor live/work units? So they've gone from ridiculously expensive to just expensive. haha.

Interesting.  Actually at $368k for the 1 bedroom, those start to look seriously attractive.  I bet you could have a great AirBnB business with one of those

Perhaps potential buyers discovered that West Bay isn't in Victoria after all.

Pros:
It looks and feels exactly like Victoria, it's closer to downtown than some Victoria neighbourhoods are, and it's cheaper.

 

Cons:

The CoV's politicians won't be representing you.

It's a long walk to downtown, especially the Empress and south of downtown, from West Bay, though a pretty one. It can be handled for sure, but you wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis. If you want to cycle, you have to go up a steep hill to Esquimalt Road and then have the bike path along Esquimalt towards the bridge. I'm not a fan of the area.
