Downtown Victoria’s 15-storey ‘Mod’ pre-sale condo hits the market with unrivalled views from 1BR & 2BR suites
Mike Kozakowski,
Condominium pre-sales for a 15-storey downtown Victoria mixed-use tower on the former site of Pluto’s Diner are now in full swing, Citified has learned.
Mod,’ comprised of 129 residences in one and two-bedroom layouts, has hit the market as homebuyers struggle to find inventory for new-build homes amid a surge in demand for city centre condominiums.
Already under construction, the highrise is scheduled for completion by late 2023, and from its southeast downtown sighting it offers desirable southern and eastern views the development team says are safeguarded from future infill.
“Mods’s unique location on Cook Street at View Street among recently completed lowrise buildings will effectively lock in some of the most beautiful vistas of southern Vancouver Island,” says Dan Robbins, one of the project partners.
“With Mod rising at the southeastern tip of downtown Victoria, what this means is development further south and east of its location is planned by the City to occur at much lower heights than Mod’s 15-storey massing, which will yield unimpeded views for homebuyers residing in suites with partial or full eastern and southern exposures.”
Emerging from a long lineage of residential and commercial development in the Capital, Mod is the latest effort form developers who most recently completed View Street’s Jukebox condominium (now sold-out), the Oceanna rental complex in Sidney’s downtown, and the restoration of a downtown office building into modern tech spaces.
With avant-garde interiors, Mod’s view-inspired layouts ranging from 475 to nearly 800 square feet present purchasers with a choice between oak and walnut cabinet palettes that accentuate white oak floors and quartz counters throughout each home.
High-end appliance packages are part of functional gourmet focal points in Mod’s diverse floorplans, while ample storage space is provided for practical efficiency. 
Floor-to-ceiling windows complement every suite’s over-height verticality to create vibrant, light-filled rooms melding with spacious exterior patios taking full advantage of Victoria’s mild year-round climate, or Juliet balconies that welcome a fresh breeze indoors.
Speaking to the large panes that dominate the tower’s design, Robbins says “it was the urban canopy, the ocean and mountain views that drove our architectural decisions and finishing touches, to accentuate Victoria’s natural beauty through large, picture windows in every residence.”
Bathrooms are opulent, with modern flair, quality materials, and expansive vanities.
The building’s amenities, meanwhile, are located in a sizeable fourth floor common area for recreational activities and entertaining, crafted for convenience and lower strata fees. 
Parking will be in the form of an underground parkade. Residents will also have access to a secure bicycle lock-up.
Situated at the eastern gateway to downtown Victoria and the Fairfield neighbourhood home to the picturesque Dallas Road waterfront, Mod residents will have access to ample public transit connections for destinations throughout the Capital, cycling infrastructure via Victoria’s protected bicycle network, and the walkable downtown core at arm’s reach.
