Late last month, I was invited to a lunch event at the fabulous Markus’ Wharfside Restaurant to learn about two new development projects that will soon be breaking ground in Sooke.
Harbour View Center is the most exciting of the two. I’d venture to say it’s probably the most important development in the last 5 years, besides perhaps Sunriver Estates. It’s been at least a decade since the last condominium complex was built in Sooke, and I believe the market is desperate for some new, quality condos in Sooke.
The building will be located at Dover Street and Sooke Road on Sooke’s southern slope, just east of the town centre. This is an area that Council has designated as the major growth centre for the town, and for good reason. The gentle slope from Sooke Road down to Sooke Harbour is ideal for building beautiful ocean and mountain view homes and commercial space.
The development will feature 32 suites, most with spectacular ocean views. The non-view suites start at a very affordable price – $189,900 for 555 sqft, and prices range up to a very reasonable $399,900 for a top-floor, 1012 sqft ocean view unit. All units will feature 10 or 11 foot ceilings, granite countertops, hardwood floors, private balconies, and the complex will have underground parking – as yet unheard of in Sooke due to lack of storm sewers.
This is the first of what I hope are many affordable, quality condominium projects that will be coming available in the next few years. If you’ve been waiting for a chance to have a brand-new condominium in Sooke to live in, rent out, or as a vacation property, this is your golden opportunity. With only 32 units available, I’m fairly certain that this will sell out, and sell out fast.
