Luxurious $1.4M Colwood penthouse pushes Westshore real-estate to new heights

“Panoramic views of the Salish Sea, the Olympic Mountains and the forested surrounds of Royal Roads University are only the beginning,” says developer Randy Royer of Pacific Landing Ltd.
Royer is remarking on the newly-unveiled $1.4 million penthouse atop The Douglas
condominium at Pacific Landing, a 12-acre waterfront development along the shores of Colwood’s picturesque Esquimalt Lagoon.
With 2,144 square feet of luxury living space and three private outdoor terraces totalling over 1,400 square feet, Royer’s opulent offering promises to push the Westshore’s luxury real-estate market to a loftier height.
“Here we are, on the edge of the Salish Sea, surrounded by unparalleled beauty in a climate that affords us year-round mild weather. The penthouse captures this essence of west coast living through expansive outdoor spaces, oversized windows, vaulted ceilings and a layout that capitalizes on natural light,” Royer said.
The unit’s top-end finishings include a collection of gourmet appliances, premium lighting throughout the home, a central heat pump with controllable heads in every room, a grand entry and custom flooring.
“The opportunity to acquire a waterfront residence of this calibre, and particularly on the region’s Westshore, is extremely rare. Buyers in this segment of the market expect unique materials and attention to detail that epitomize west coast penthouse living, and they'll experience that here,” Royer said, adding that Pacific Landing’s collective real-estate offerings are geared towards purchasers seeking quality over quantity.

With completion of the 33-unit, three-building first phase
scheduled for this fall, Pacific Landing’s five-storey second phase – and home to the development’s hallmark suite – will get underway next month.
“As sales have pushed to nearly 60%, we expect to start construction on phase two this month,” Royer says. “The upcoming Douglas building will be positioned as the community’s dominant landmark and will be constructed by the same team who built the Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna and the Rocky Mountain Resort in Banff.”
Situated at the “heart” of the Pacific Landing community, the 20-unit Douglas will benefit from its immediate proximity to the development’s amenity offerings that include a “treetop” yoga studio, a kitchen theatre, rooftop viewing terraces, even a maker’s workshop, all of which Royer says will “collectively redefine amenity packages homeowners have come to expect at condominium residences.”
Comprised of two-bedroom units sized between 1,100 and 2,100 square feet (plus the 2,144 square foot penthouse) with pricing on remaining inventory starting at $599,900, The Douglas offers a variety of layouts in a distinguished building mixing old and new architectural cues with transitional craftsman exteriors and luxurious contemporary interiors.
Its wrap-around ground floor terraces and spacious balconies are designed with views in mind, and much like the penthouse, yield exposure towards the ocean and the development’s natural setting.
Nine and ten foot ceilings (with select units featuring vaulted ceilings up to 15 feet high) create spacious interior spaces fitting of upper-end real-estate offerings. Below grade the building’s underground parking provides owners with electric vehicle charging capability.
Luxury finishings in kitchens and bathrooms speak to the Douglas’ niche in the luxury housing market while industry-leading soundproofing technologies ensure residents will enjoy a lifestyle fitting of Pacific Landing’s bucolic setting.
And rounding out unit highlights is the inclusion of highly efficient heat pumps, natural gas on-demand hot water systems, and smart home technology.
As for future phases at Pacific Landing, Royer confirms his plans are to include a grocery store, a boutique hotel, commercial spaces for health practitioners and a retail component.
“As the project continues to grow we will pursue additional land uses to create a holistic waterfront community. The views, the location and the quality of construction are certainly draws for our residents, and in due course the rest of region will come to know Pacific Landing as a tranquil residential and commercial hub unique to the Westshore.” C
