About the owner: We have lived in Victoria for many years, and love living here so much that we leapt at the chance to buy this condo - right on the edge of downtown, with great views, as well as peace and quiet. We hope to retire there someday, but for now we hope people will come and enjoy our condo as though it were their own, and grow to love Victoria as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria: We chose to buy this unit in one of the world's most advanced energy friendly project - Dockside Green - to take advantage of the beautiful location on the edge of downtown of one of the world's top vacation destinations with the thought of eventually retiring there. Dockside Green is a unique 15-acre master planned harbour front community built for true environmental sustainability. The project has won numerous international awards for its 'green' design, recognized as a LEED Platinum certified project, the highest possible rating. The complex is located on the waterside downtown walkway, and the famous regional Bike Trail - the 'Galloping Goose'. This is the ideal location for enjoying everything Victoria has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The 3 penthouse units have exclusive access to the huge private rooftop garden, with extensive patios and 360 degree views, to enjoy the sun, watch fireworks or just relax. The complex has a full gym, secure underground parking, waterfront walkways, lying between 2 bridges crossing over to downtown. Major grocery store and shopping center 2 minutes walk, everything you need to enjoy everything Victoria has to offer.
