'Gem of a unit' at newly built 2BR downtown condo features massive private patio

15-storey Mod, recently completed on Cook Street at View Street in downtown Victoria's Harris Green neighbourhood, is over 70% sold-out. A 'gem of a unit,' however, remains available, with a nearly 850 square foot private outdoor patio space.  Colin McTaggart

'Gem of a unit' at newly built 2BR downtown condo features massive private patio

Described as a unique residence of which only one is available for purchase, an 872 square foot two-bedroom condominium at Cook and View streets boasting a spacious 842 square foot private patio is a featured home for sale at the newly completed Mod tower.
Priced at $799,000, suite 211 on the quiet southwest corner of 15-storey Mod (see website) should be on every condo buyer's shortlist, says developer Dan Robbins, who together with partner Fraser McColl, recently put the finishing touches on a 129-suite highrise in Victoria’s Harris Green neighbourhood.
“Mod’s unique ‘downtown bookmark’ location has been a key highlight for our purchasers, with so many of our upper floor units available with forever unimpeded views. And several gems are still available, like a residence totalling over 1,700 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space, with parking, that must be seen to be believed,” Robbins said.
Full of natural light and a picture-perfect exterior wrap-around patio, suite 211 is described by Robbins’ partner Fraser McColl as a “a perfect residence for a growing family, or office workers who would like to blend work-from-home into their living space.” McColl adds that “in downtown Victoria, condominiums with large patios and parking are typically reserved for multi-million dollar penthouses, not at price points below $800,000.”

Over 70% sold-out, Mod is the only condominium with move-in ready inventory in Victoria’s downtown core, which in recent years has seen a proliferation of purpose-built rental apartments while new-build condominium opportunities have waned, leaving a demand imbalance for homebuyers searching for quality, new-to-market city centre units.
With dramatic exposed concrete and up-market finishings, Mod’s interiors are modern and avant-garde and naturally lit through a generous focus on floor-to-ceiling windows, which have become less and less common in Victoria’s market due to changing building codes and design standards.
High-end appliance packages are part of functional gourmet focal points in Mod’s diverse floorplans, and ample storage space is provided for practical efficiency. Well apportioned exterior patios take full advantage of Victoria’s mild year-round climate, and Juliet balconies in select floorplans welcome a fresh breeze indoors. All bedrooms are on exterior walls with ample glass glazing.
Bathrooms are opulent, with modern flair and quality materials.
Parking is in the form of an underground parkade. Residents will also have access to a secure bicycle lock-up.
The building’s amenities are located in a sizable fourth floor common area for recreational activities and entertaining. The ground floor includes three commercial units, all of which have sold.
Nearby commercial services present the wide assortment of stores and retailers of downtown Victoria, including a Save-On-Foods, the Market on Yates boutique grocery store, and the many shops along Fort Street and at The Bay Centre shopping mall.
Alternative transportation for a car-lite lifestyle is at the building’s doorstep with Fort Street's AAA all-ages-and-abilities cycling route connecting other AAA routes throughout downtown and further afield. Transit services from downtown Victoria make getting around without a vehicle easy, with routes reaching all corners of the Capital Region, including south Island universities, colleges and employment nodes.

As to unit 211, Robbins believes the unique offering will not last long on the market, now that it has been highlighted as a featured unit.
“With so much positive change taking place on the east side of Harris Green, having a superbly versatile space like unit 211 lends itself to a smart investment where the homebuyer will be able to put down roots and take full advantage of the very best of downtown Victoria. Rarely does a home of this calibre, at its price point, come on the market in Victoria, and we anticipate interest in this layout to be strong,” Robbins said.
