Wouldn't the location of these being close to the highway be a factor? How is the highway noise when you open a window or step on the balcony?
I think I prefer the dead quiet of our place on salt spring, where all we ever hear is the school bus, the occasional chain saw in season and planes overhead. Oh, and the frogs.
The Lyra checks a lot of boxes for us, location isn’t really one of them. We did look at the Otto as well, better location but the building isn’t near as nice IMO.
Perched on Christmas Hill, the Lyra penthouse is surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. Its impeccable concrete and steel construction (2020) offers panoramic views of the Olympic Mountains, the Sooke Hills, downtown Victoria and Mount Newton. The spacious interior is unsurpassed, and a 362 sq-ft wrap-around balcony invites you to your own private outdoor eyrie, carpeted below with Garry Oaks. With 11' vaulted ceilings flooded with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows, this penthouse seamlessly combines urban convenience with spectacular views and proximity to the Galloping Goose and Lochside Trails. Both bedrooms offer superb comfort, and the primary suite, featuring two closets, boasts a spa-like 4-piece ensuite with a rainshower. Both bathrooms have heated tile floors. With top-tier finishings and a gourmet kitchen, Lyra Residences invites you to a life of luxury where nature's beauty envelops every room. Secure parking further ensures that each day is effortlessly enjoyable.
