Normally they're made out of solid ice so it's weird when you see ones made out of concrete.

So have we seen a final image of what they're actually building here? I thought there was some controversy over the images we had seen earlier?

1 Beds (590-677 sqft):  From $474,900 * select units, some do not include parking

1 Beds (510-705 sqft):  From $544,900

 

1 Bed + Den (757-903 sqft): From $599,900

 

2 Bedroom (863-1140 sqft):  From $739,900 (Tyee collection)

2 Bedroom (1010-1128 sqft): From $929,900 (Harbour collection)

 

 

 

 

Seems quite steep...is that the going rate for 2 beds here now or are the interiors really high end? We're looking at a $1M+ for a 2 bed once GST's factored in...yikes.

That seems pretty standard for the market. You’ll pay $1m for a two bed in Promontory, bayview, encore, for 1000 sqft 2 bed with a water view.

Building costs are skyrocketing right now too.

Been watching this most days as I pass by on the green way, but it's cool to see your overhead shots! I'm not familiar with the constuction technique - are those metal & yellow looking panels just to form the concrete layers between parking levels, and they get removed afterwards?.

Has anyone ever seen one of these in Victoria? I saw them on pretty much every construction site in Dubai but first time seeing one here.

Noticed it the other day and was wondering what it was.

This is essentially an extension for a concrete truck.

Interesting to see Dockside being marketed as being "30 MINS TO CITY" (i.e. Vancouver by float plane or helicopter)

Affordable 2-bedrooms in 1008 Pandora are $1400/month. I believe the affordable 1-bedrooms are $1065 and I can't remember the studio price.

Minimal excavation really increases the pace of a project.

Yes, they had that already completed. But three towers going up at once at the pace we’re seeing is not what Victoria is used to, at all. These Vancouver developers don’t wait around for the paint to dry, that’s for sure.

If you're not prepared for head-spinning rapid change I wouldn't recommend going anywhere near the Dockside Green site.

A dozen years after Dockside Green’s former owner announced it was taking a “pause” in development, crews and heavy equipment are back on site to build three residential towers with a total of 365 units.

 

This is just the beginning of plans by current owner Bosa Development to complete the mixed-use development project in Vic West, which was started about 17 years ago but stalled in the wake of the global financial crisis in 2008.

Here’s this morning’s press release:

For Immediate Release – April 9, 2021

Press Release

DOCKSIDE GREEN: Construction & Sales Begin in Long-Anticipated Next Phase

Condo Design Responds to COVID-19 Health & Wellness Priorities

Victoria, British Columbia – For 15 years, there have been several stops and starts at Dockside Green, a partially built mixed-use community in Victoria West. Bosa Development, owner of Fairmont Empress Hotel, bought 10 acres of the site three years ago and today announced that construction is underway of three concrete condo buildings. The first building will total 107 homes, with sales opening to the public tomorrow by appointment. Bosa Development said Dockside is ahead of its time when it comes to prioritizing wellbeing.

“We are excited to continue building Dockside, a sustainable neighbourhood that focuses on health and wellness, which are greater priorities now due to COVID-19,” said Ryan Bosa, president of Bosa Development a long-established, family-owned BC company. “Our upcoming homes respond to an urgency created by the global pandemic – each home will have its own fresh-air supply, whereas standard buildings circulate common air through the building.”

Usually found in larger new detached homes, each condo will be equipped with an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) which circulates fresh air from outdoors and regulates the temperature, keeping residents warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Further lending to health protocols is that each condo will have a balcony.

Bosa anticipates demand will be high for Dockside for several reasons, including that the homes are larger than average, giving people space to create a home office or study, something that has become a necessity during COVID-19.

On-site Water Treatment

Dockside’s first phases under the previous ownership put it on the global map for sustainability, becoming the first master-planned community of its kind in Canada to achieve Platinum certification under LEED v4 for Neighbourhood Development Plan. It also placed third in that category globally.

Guided by the green foundation that is already established – and relying on decades of experience building smart-growth communities – Bosa Development will elevate Dockside’s sustainability standards, including each building utilizing an onsite waste-water treatment facility. While fresh water in each home will come from the City of Victoria, used water leaving each home will be treated and purified on site and used to irrigate landscaping and flush toilets. The treatment facility will reduce water consumption at Dockside Green by up to 35 per cent.

Home Design

Dockside is designed to give people a healthier way to live, move, and interact socially. Bosa will incorporate extensive indoor and outdoor amenities throughout the community, including a public plaza, scenic green waterway, park space, and dog park. The condo building will have a fully equipped fitness centre, multi-purpose social lounge, and outdoor rooftop lounge with a BBQ and fire pit. Each home will be equipped with premium European appliances and Italian cabinetry.

“Our communities focus on quality livability inside and outside the home and because of that, people who buy our homes tend live in them, rather than just invest,” said Bosa.

Dockside Details

Completion of Bosa’s first residential building of 107 homes is targeted for summer 2023. The two subsequent buildings will bring an additional 258 homes. These buildings will be 12, 13 and 15 storeys.

Once completed, the entire 15-acre Dockside Green mixed-use community, including the 10 acres owned by Bosa, will be approximately one-million square feet of buildable area with a variety of building forms ranging from low-rise to 18 storeys. The timeline for buildout is 10+ years with construction generating approximately 1,000 direct onsite jobs. Homes will range in size from 600 square feet to more than 1,500 square feet.

Once completed, Dockside Green will be home to more than 2,500 people.

Have been eye'ing this one as a potential home as we love the neighbourhood and intrigued by the public realm. We registered and received an info package - the floorplans looks good but one oddity jumped out - no A/C. Is that normal? Haven't encountered a building without A/C before!

 

Does anyone know what the masterplan will look like once fully built out? Google isn't turning up much substance.

I thought the earlier phases of Dockside Green had geothermal a/c?
