The completion of an iconic condominium development in downtown Victoria has marked a 'sizeable' achievement for Vancouver Island’s built form.
Hudson Place One, officially standing as the tallest building on the Island, has reached built status after three years of construction along the 700-block of Herald Street in downtown Victoria’s Hudson District.
“Hudson Place One is a unique, place-making residential tower for Victoria and exemplifies what the Hudson District and Townline envisioned for this community well over ten years ago,” says Chris Colbeck, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at development firm Townline. “Today, Hudson Place One stands as a landmark on Victoria’s skyline and as the symbol of a burgeoning quadrant of a world-renowned downtown core.”
Rising to 25-storeys with an 85 meter overall height, Hudson Place One has eclipsed Nanaimo’s 76 meter Beacon Tower – constructed in the mid-1990s along that city’s downtown waterfront – to reclaim the title of Vancouver Island’s Tallest Building for the Capital City.
Comprised of 176 up-market residential suites, the tower's homes span from 473 square foot studios to nearly 2,000 square foot penthouses with breathtaking views of southern Vancouver Island, the Salish Sea and the Olympic Mountain Range.
Having reached a 70% sold-out status during its pre-sales campaign, remaining homes will be available as move-in ready condominiums priced from the mid-$400,000s.
In addition to its prominence among the City’s tallest buildings, Townline has installed a state-of-the-art lighting feature atop the crown that illuminates by night in a variety of colours.
“It seemed fitting to top off the highest elevated tower in Victoria with an epochal rooftop display. No matter where you may be in the region, Hudson Place One’s illuminated crown acts as a beacon for Victoria’s core with its brilliant lighting display emanating from the Hudson District,” Colbeck said.
Townline’s offering has remained top-of-mind among condominium purchasers in light of each suite’s spa-inspired bathrooms, world-class kitchen designs and opulent finishings with smartly-designed living spaces that maximize utility while taking advantage of the backdrops beyond.
As condo living becomes more inclusive of perks and services for residents and their guests, buyers in search of a wider spectrum of in-building amenities will have the option of utilizing Hudson Place One’s full concierge program, a fresh room with cold and dry storage for residents' deliveries, an electronic-controlled parcel delivery room and secure bicycle storage with a repair station conveniently accessible through a separate entrance next to the lobby.
The third floor is designated as an 11,000 square foot indoor and outdoor amenity space featuring private gardens and gas fire pits with seating areas, a dining and social lounge, a yoga room, a hobby room, a business centre and a guest suite. Residents will also enjoy a fitness centre, a billiards room overlooking the gardens and an infrared sauna.
Situated next to the Public Market and minutes by foot to Chinatown, grocery stores and downtown Victoria's eclectic mix of retail amenities, Hudson Place One gives residents the very best of a walkable lifestyle in the heart of the city.
For individuals wishing to learn more about the project’s move-in ready homes, the presentation centre is open to the public by appointment-only at 740 Herald Street.
