Building Info

Customs House - 816 Government Street, Victoria BC Canada V8W 1W9. In Victorias majestic and world renowned inner Harbour, architectural icons hold places of distinction and recognition. The Empress Hotel and the BC Legislature have anchored the Capital Citys inner Harbour for the past century and now Customs House is set to rejoin these famous landmarks as Victorias most prestigious residential address. As the most anticipated new residential offering in the last decade and the most significant addition to Victorias inner Harbour since the lower pedestrian causeway in 1974, Customs House will feature an exclusive offering of just 57 luxury private residences.

The original sandstone exterior, erected in 1898, will be preserved to form the envelope and western most walls that front Wharf street and Courtney Ave. When the existing structure has been removed, only the heritage sandstone faade will remain. Replacing the former building will be a new concrete residential mid-rise that will add three levels of underground parking and 7 storeys of luxury residences. Architect Paul Merricks vision for Customs House ensures that new exterior along Government street will mirror the existing heritage faade creating a seamless transition between old world architecture and modern design.
The same vision and design will be transferred to interior of each residential home at Customs House with large open floor-plans, over heights ceilings and floor - to - ceiling windows to ensure that natural light and views of Victorias Inner Harbour remain unobstructed.

Victoria Real Estate Board Update

Victoria real estate activity picks up as restrictions ease

 

June 1, 2020 A total of 457 properties sold in the Victoria Real Estate Board region this May, 46.1 per cent fewer than the 848 properties sold in May 2019 but 59.2 per cent more than the previous month of April 2020. Sales of condominiums were down 55.7 per cent from May 2019 with 108 units sold. Sales of single family homes were down 42.9 per cent from May 2019 with 254 sold.

"Our market continues to respond to the current health crisis," says Victoria Real Estate Board President Sandi-Jo Ayers. "Activity in real estate right now echoes the activity in our broader community - as restrictions gradually begin to lift - so too have our sales and listings numbers. Of course, like any industry, we do not expect a sudden shift back to any kind of normal. That said, one theme that persists in our market is that well-priced properties in high demand areas continue to see multiple offers. Demand exists and we continue to have motivated buyers searching for their perfect home."

There were 2,544 active listings for sale on the Victoria Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service® at the end of May 2020, 15.7 percent fewer properties than the total available at the end of May 2019 but a 10.4 per cent increase from the 2,305 active listings for sale at the end of April 2020.

"If you're considering buying or selling a property right now you will find the experience different than pre-pandemic," adds Ayers. "REALTORS® are doing our part to ensure that there is not a resurgence of COVID-19 in our community by following government health and safety guidelines, by leveraging technology to facilitate many aspects of the real estate transaction virtually and by implementing various clean showing protocols. Your Realtor will navigate the new processes and requirements to keep you, your property and our city safe and healthy."

The Multiple Listing Service® Home Price Index benchmark value for a single family home in the Victoria Core in May 2019 was $863,000. The benchmark value for the same home in May 2020 increased by 2.6 per cent to $885,400, 0.1 per cent more than April's value of $884,600. The MLS® HPI benchmark value for a condominium in the Victoria Core area in May 2019 was $516,400, while the benchmark value for the same condominium in May 2020 increased by 3.5 per cent to $534,300, 0.1 per cent more than the April value of $533,600.
