Nearly move-in ready Trailside at the Lake condos overlooking Langford Lake now selling
Mike Kozakowski,
A collection of nearly move-in ready lakeside condominiums along the shores of Langford Lake will hit the market as one of the most anticipated pre-sale offerings of the year.
Trailside at the Lake (see website), from developers Seacliff Properties and Keycorp Development, will soon start selling one and two-bedroom view homes ranging from 614 to approximately 1,000 square feet, parking included, with nearly every home featuring desirable views of Langford Lake and the Ed Nixon Trail.
Slated for completion this fall, Trailside is centrally located at the northwest corner of Langford Lake with transit, schools, a YMCA recreational facility, shopping and parkland in close proximity.
“Condominium living on Victoria’s West Shore has become one of the most sought-out segments of the south Island’s real-estate market, with families, young couples and right-sizers choosing communities like Langford for its many retail, social and natural amenities,” said Malcolm McNaughton, director of marketing at Keycorp Development, adding that “Trailside’s location, overlooking the banks of beautiful Langford Lake, represents the epitome of West Shore living.”
As part of the project’s launch, the development team has introduced a first program of its kind on the south Island, designed to help buyers tap into some of the industry’s most competitive interest rates.
Known as the Innovative Reduced Interest Rate Buy-Down Program, buyers will be eligible for what McNaughton calls “incredible financing options at interest rates only available at Trailside,” which at a time of rising bank rates, will be a welcome change for Victoria pre-sale options.
“We encourage purchasers to connect with our sales team to discuss how the Rate Buy-Down Program works, and how we can help homebuyers secure a highly competitive mortgage rate for their new home,” McNaughton said.

With two six-storey buildings nearing completion, the first of which will be ready for completion by the end of 2023, residences at Trailside will enjoy sweeping views of the water, and unobstructed vistas towards Sooke Hills Wilderness Regional Park and Goldstream Provincial Park, two of the Capital’s most popular hiking, camping and day trip destinations.
Residents can take advantage of the Ed Nixon Trail, a walking thoroughfare that spans from Trailside along the southern perimeter of Langford Lake to Ed Nixon Trail Park, Langford Lake Beach Park, and the many amenities of the area like Starlight Stadium, Langford Lanes and Boulderhouse climbing gym.
The area is also home to a large assortment of retailers that include a Quality Foods grocery store, WalMart and many other local and national stores, plus food services – such as House of Boateng, Floyd's Diner, Rhino Coffee House, Baan Thai, the many restaurants and retail services of West Shore Town Centre, and Belmont Marketplace – all just a short stroll beyond.
“Imagine being nearby Goldstream Provincial Park to watch the salmon run with your grand kids, or to go for a hike in the Sooke Hills Wilderness, or climb into a kayak for a relaxing evening on the lake, while having all of your retail and service needs met within a short distance from your home,” McNaughton says.
“There is a reason why Trailside at the Lake is in such high demand in Langford where residents enjoy a great balance of views, proximity to infrastructure, access to nature and shopping,” McNaughton continued.
In terms of finishings, Trailside will feature air conditioning in every suite to moderate year-round temperatures, while large windows brighten efficient and thoughtfully designed living spaces.

European-inspired, Canadian-built cabinetry with soft-close technology, matte black hardware and quartz countertops paired to premium wood laminate flooring throughout lends an air of sophistication to kitchen and dining spaces, which also feature a stainless steel energy-efficient Whirlpool appliance package (plus a Whirlpool Energy Star Certified washer and dryer).

Bathrooms are opulent, with premium quartz countertops and vanity backsplashes mated to quality millwork and a ‘rain’ showerhead above a deep soaker tub.
Each suite has an exterior space for relaxing, container gardening or entertaining. Residents will have on-site electric vehicle charging available to help with the transition to new automotive technologies. Bicycle and locker storage will be included for every home.
Among southwestern British Columbia's most active development firms, Seacliff and Keycorp have a long list of new-build accomplishments throughout the region, including the upcoming Royal Beach neighborhood in Colwood, McCormick Meadows in Happy Valley, the Watermark condominiums in the coastal community of Sechelt, and Southpoint, a new neighbourhood along the southern slope of Skirt Mountain near Bear Mountain Resort.
The West Shore’s South Island Home Team, representing the sales campaign for Trailside, is excited for a joint Seacliff and Keycorp development in Langford, says the company’s lead real-estate agent, Mike Hartshorne. Hartshorne remarks that the calibre of construction quality and attention to detail Seacliff and Keycorp are known for will be a welcome addition to Langford’s pre-sale housing market.
“As Langford’s condominium market has matured, so have the expectations of purchasers that may value a suburban lifestyle, but expect high grade material finishings, beautiful views and room to live and grow,” Harsthorne says. “With Seacliff and Keycorp at the helm of Trailside, purchasers will have peace of mind that the end-product will be of a top-level quality, built to last, with a robust 2-5-10 warranty.”
Hartshorne and his colleagues at South Island Home Team have overseen the sale of thousands of residences throughout Victoria and the West Shore, with Trailside a landmark addition to Home Team’s roster at a time when purchasers are increasingly looking to Langford for a wider variety of suburban housing options.
“This is an exciting time for Langford, a community that is coming into its own with desirable retail destinations, some of the best parkland and outdoor recreational sites on Vancouver Island, and home prices that remain competitive,” Hartshorne said. “At Trailside, you don’t have to compromise on location or build quality or value, and in the current real-estate environment, those are crucial criteria that make this offering a must-see opportunity.”
