Just last week, the Pacific House and Lexi Development Group team gathered with new homeowners, the Realtor community, and Mayor of Esquimalt, Barb Desjardins, to raise a glass and celebrate the official breaking ground of Pacific House
at 899 Esquimalt Road.
Esquimalt’s newest condominium pre-sale has only five available opportunities to own, as construction is officially underway on the project, Citified has learned.
Pacific House, slated to rise nine-storeys above Esquimalt Road at Head Street and tapered several floors from its promontory towards Wollaston Street, has drawn significant purchaser interest for its view-oriented one, and two-bedroom condominium offerings plus a collection of multi-storey townhomes. With construction underway, this concrete tower will deliver 66 residences scheduled for late 2024.
“With suites overlooking the Inner Harbour of Esquimalt and Victoria, the rich urban canopy of the Capital Region, the Salish Sea and Washington State’s mountain peaks, Pacific House has had a highly successful pre-sale campaign among resident-owners and investors alike, and we’re pleased to announce a spring 2022 start to our construction program,” says Babak Nikbakhtan, one of Lexi Development Group’s managing partners.

Among its diverse and thoughtfully designed inventory still available for purchase, two-bedroom layouts start in the mid $700,000s, and range from 724 to 844 square feet.
Vancouver-based interior design firm BYU, with a portfolio that includes some of the most prestigious high-rise residential projects on the Mainland, has created unique interiors at Pacific House that maximize views from every home while creating livable, light-filled spaces with opulent, naturally inspired materials that exude luxury without sacrificing functionality and efficiency.
As for Pacific House’s amenity package, residents will have access to well apportioned indoor/outdoor amenity area for entertaining with a prep kitchen, ample seating and plenty of room for social gatherings.
Just a 10-minute bike ride from downtown Victoria, and centrally located in one of the Capital Region’s most desirable urban neighbourhoods, Pacific House has resonated with purchasers searching for a home in the city’s core, albeit removed from the bustle of Victoria’s downtown. Set in a walker’s paradise just two blocks from the oceanside pathway leading to downtown and serviced by a high frequency transit route connecting CFB Esquimalt, Victoria’s city centre and the University of Victoria, Nikbakhtan says lifestyle has played a key role in attracting buyers to the project.

“With recent changes to the way we work, Esquimalt has become a focal point among a wide range of purchasers choosing their homes for what a neighbourhood offers, and not necessarily living where employment may dominate housing choice,” Nikbakhtan has added.
Several years in planning, Pacific House is the first all-concrete condominium tower in Esquimalt, and represents a new direction for a seaside municipality that shares a border with the City of Victoria, yet maintains a vibe all its own. Pacific House, with its up-market quality and urban aesthetic, sets the standard for a township poised for more development and the benefits that come through well planned infill densification.
Lexi Development Group’s commitment to Esquimalt extends to the company’s plans to situate a medical clinic at Pacific House within a purpose-built ground floor commercial space fronting Esquimalt Road. News of a medical facility played a key part in Esquimalt council’s and the broader community’s support for the project, which comes following a 2018 closure of a nearby walk-in clinic that was in high demand by nearby residents.
In terms of Lexi Development Group’s repertoire of projects, the firm has traditionally focused its efforts on upscale custom single-family-dwellings in Metro Vancouver, and multi-family investments in the Squamish area north of Vancouver. Lexi’s plans are now focused on the Vancouver Island market with future investment envisioned for Esquimalt and other parts of Greater Victoria.
