All eyes on Sidney: The Quartet condo epitomizes seaside town's allure
Published January 15, 2018
Greater Victoria-based Marker Group is readying to start construction of the company’s fourth condominium development in the booming Town of Sidney.
Dubbed The Quartet
, the five-storey residence – situated along 4th Street between Beacon and Bevan avenues – is comprised of 19 one, two, and three-bedroom suites along with three ground oriented live-work homes positioned to take advantage of the area’s abundant foot traffic.
Mike Cronquist, Marker Group’s Vice President of Development, says The Quartet’s location has resonated with buyers searching for a walkable urban community outside of Victoria’s busy core.
“Our experience with building residential communities in Sidney is that buyers throughout the Capital Region are increasingly seeking an amenity-rich small town atmosphere that leaves behind the challenges of urban living, and Sidney represents the alternative they’re looking for,” Cronquist says, adding that “Marker’s continued focus on Sidney’s core has played a major role in supplying the fast-growing demand for the town’s residential offerings.”
The Quartet is designed to appeal to downsizers, young professionals and first-time buyers searching for well-priced contemporary homes and the Sidney lifestyle.
“The price points in Sidney for two-bedroom, three-bedroom and live-work condominium residences offer tangible value relative to similar Victoria offerings considering the seaside location and the walkable town centre,” Cronquist says.
Homes feature nine foot ceilings throughout main living areas while top-floor penthouse ceilings scale to 10’10”. Professionally designed open-concept interiors by award-winning Judy Henderson of Vancouver’s Inside Design Studio create functional living spaces complemented with high-end, contemporary finishings throughout each home.
Accompanying every two-bedroom condominium and live-work home is one parking stall.
The Quartet’s remaining inventory is sized between 1,020 and 1,509 square feet in the form of two-bedroom, three-bedroom, live-work and penthouse layouts.
Priced from $534,900, two-bedroom suites are available in three configurations with up to 1,060 square feet of living space plus patios that span from 109 to just below 600 square feet. Three-bedroom homes offer 1,314 square foot layouts with patios reaching nearly 150 square feet. Pricing starts at $699,900.
Three ground-oriented live-work spaces are available from $649,900 and range between 1053 square feet to 1,230 square feet with 84 to 255 square foot patios.
The Quartet’s luxurious penthouse residences are sized between 1,454 and 1,509 square feet plus spacious 229 square foot balconies. Pricing starts from $824,900.
“We’ve been a part of Sidney’s urban revival for over ten years,” Cronquist said, speaking to the changes transforming Sidney’s core from a former commercial hub to a mixed-use community. “The town’s older buildings are being replaced with modern commercial spaces and residences, and the vibrancy that comes with such change is palpable. We are very excited to play a key role in this transformation."
Marker Group is one of Greater Victoria’s most active development firms, with Christmas Hill’s Lyra Residences now under construction, and multiple completed high density projects throughout the region that include Sidney’s iconic The Pier Hotel, The Meridian Residences on Third Street in Sidney, and Seaport West near Sidney’s waterfront.
