A boutique pre-sale comprised of seven three-bedroom plus-den townhomes is coming soon to Victoria’s desirable Fairfield neighbourhood.
Known as Seven by Aryze, the offering from award-winning Victoria-based developer Aryze (see website) represents an evolution in design from a firm known for its innovative, market-leading infill projects, at a time when ‘missing middle’ housing is top of mind among urban homebuyers.
Situated at 931 McClure Street – a quaint no-through lane between Vancouver and Quadra streets – Seven’s location is within short walking distance to the heart of downtown Victoria, Cook Street Village, and the Dallas Road waterfront.
“Seven is a homeownership opportunity that is arguably one of the most unique in Victoria, with interior design that makes the most of every space, maximizes natural lighting and takes advantage of our mild climate with generous private patios and balconies,” says Sarah Henderson, Director of Sales at Aryze. “Although Seven is one of our smaller projects, it is engaging architecturally, with maximized livability, and in a highly coveted location.”
With high-end townhomes and custom residences at the core of some 20 years of homebuilding, Aryze has climbed to the upper echelons of Victoria’s urban infill developers, garnering international praise for a visionary approach to custom floorplan design, luxury finishings and materials as unique as each parcel they build on.
Rising four levels, Seven’s human-scaled exterior greets visitors with a grand staircase flanked by convenient cycling stalls and an entranceway to secure underground parking. Atop level one are three-storey townhomes sized approximately between 1,500 square feet and 1,650 square feet, curated with an array of comforts chosen for their practicality and contemporary appeal.
Henderson says Seven’s interiors, from the studios of Victoria-based Pamela Billinghurst Interior Design, create an avant-garde aesthetic with every layout, marrying palettes, materials and shapes for distinctly one-of-a-kind homes.

“At the forefront of every Aryze home is function and natural flow, and Seven’s open air courtyard between both blocks of townhomes allows for double-ended exposures that benefit from natural light through north and south outlooks,” Henderson said, adding that “this design aspect emphasizes the welcoming, bright and airy quality of each home.”
In addition to the ambiance of bright, open spaces, Seven’s townhomes feature a sophisticated heating and cooling system, an enhanced finishing package, and wide plank oak hardwood flooring throughout.
Floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry is forward-thinking through smart use of wall space for nooks and storage, and a walk-in closet off the principal bedroom is accessed through a barn door that slides to reveal the spacious wardrobe, or the entrance to a spa-like ensuite adorned with a large floating vanity for added storage, and a lighting package that promotes relaxation.
Although details are still under wraps, Henderson says Aryze and Pamela Billinghurst have left no stone unturned in Seven’s chef-inspired kitchens, that shine with top-grade appliances, custom millwork cabinetry with soft-close technology, high-end hardware, quartz countertops, and under-cabinet lighting.

The principal bedroom, meanwhile, invites rest with a minimalist concept, as Aryze describes, to “let life take centre stage.”
Two additional bedrooms and a den provide plenty of flexibility for growing families and future needs. Bicycle storage is provided to each residence as part of the underground parking area, accommodating every home with parking and storage.
With construction expected to get underway later this year, occupancy is expected for mid-2024, Henderson confirms, at which time the company will pivot to its latest project recently approved by the City of Victoria at 902 Foul Bay Road.
The year’s long approvals process for what will become 18 units of missing middle townhomes, including a third of suites priced below-market as part of an affordability component, follows the recent completion of Aryze’s Rhodo development along Fairfield Road near Foul Bay Road. One move-in ready residence remains for sale at that project.
