Colwood’s oceanfront Pacific Landing development a unique gem among Capital’s real-estate offerings
Colwood’s luxury oceanfront community of Pacific Landing is nearing completion of its first phase of condominium residences with sales of phase two currently underway.
Situated along the shores of picturesque Esquimalt Lagoon on a 12-acre forested parcel, the mixed-use residential and commercial development is on track to unveil its inaugural amenity offerings and welcome its first residents to a three-building, 33-unit collection of two-bedroom suites.
Developer Randy Royer, president of Pacific Landing Ltd., says the project’s unique location and wooded setting presented his team with the opportunity to shape a world-class residential enclave with a collection of amenities destined to form the cornerstone of a village atmosphere.
“Our goal with Pacific Landing has been to embrace the site’s gorgeous environment through a seaside community that not only takes full advantage of the west coast lifestyle, but also provides its residents with a rewarding amenity experience,” Royer said, adding that phase one’s “treetop yoga studio, kitchen theatre, roof-top viewing terraces and a richly appointed maker’s workshop will collectively redefine amenity packages homeowners have come to expect at condominium residences.”
In addition to Pacific Landing's resort-like offerings, a community garden – already operating and tended to by soon-to-be residents – provides green thumbs the opportunity to self-manage a large oceanside garden, while efforts to re-introduce salmon and trout spawning in a wetland fed by Bee Creek will add to Pacific Landing’s charm and natural surrounds.
With construction winding down on the first phase, Royer and his team have shifted focus to the second of an eventual six phases. Currently in pre-sales is The Douglas, a five-storey, 20-unit collection of two-bedroom luxury residences tucked in among a grove of mature trees and positioned to take advantage of expansive ocean views. And the market uptake of the limited release, Royer says, has been immediate.
“Over the last two weeks we’ve sold-out of nearly forty per-cent of our second phase inventory, an overwhelmingly strong response that we can attribute to buyers having a tangible sense of what we’re working towards with the near-completion of phase one,” Royer said.
With premium home layouts sized between 1,200 and 2,100 square feet, The Douglas offers a refined level of luxury finishings while energy-efficient construction with smart home technology ensure homeowners will benefit from the latest in design innovation.
Pricing for phase two suites starts just below $590,000. A handful of remaining luxury ownership opportunities at phase one are priced from $450,000.
Construction on phase two is expected to begin this fall with completion slated for late 2018.
At full build-out Pacific Landing will encompass approximately 150-residences and a commercial component that includes retail spaces, a grocery store and offices. Future plans also envision a boutique hotel, an art centre, a clubhouse for residents and visitors, and a seaside pub.
