Pacific Landing offers the latest in modern living within a natural setting that features panoramic views of Esquimalt Lagoon. The Douglas, the five-storey development that comprises Phase 2 on the 12-acre ocean front site is staggered to maximize the ocean views, said Emily Royer, director of sales and marketing for Pacific Landing. “The developers went to great lengths to not only preserve the natural setting but to enhance it as well,” she noted. “We put a lot of thought into the design and believe it has the potential to become a landmark on the lagoon.”

The official launch for the Douglas takes place Saturday, May 6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A recent soft launch was well received, with five of the 15 units selling in just three days, Royer noted. “Based on the feedback we’ve received, we’ve incorporated some larger units with large terraces and a range of sizes in this phase, with more of an open living concept that we believe will appeal to a wide range of buyers,” Royer said.

The condo suites vary from 1,275 sq. ft. to 2,200 sq. ft., with prices from $579,900 to $1.4 million. All of the condo suites are two-bedroom, two-bathroom, with some including a den. “There’s one penthouse available at the top of the fifth floor that offers spectacular ocean views,” Royer added. The Douglas has three design options, the Kingfisher, the Starling and the Meadowlark, all named after birds that visit the migratory bird sanctuary nearby.

There’s a variety of colours and textures for floors, cabinets, carpeting, kitchen counter tops, bathroom and shower tiles and back splashes. Options also include quartz, stone and textured tiles.

“The kitchen design emphasizes storage and a user-friendly layout,” Royer said. Phase 2 is expected to be completed by the end of the summer of 2018.

Phase one will be move in ready this summer and features 33 condominiums, all corner units, in three buildings, some with ocean views. They are 1,050 sq. ft. and range from $499,000 to $510,000. “Sales for Phase 1 of the project went really well, with only a few units remaining,” Royer said.

Pacific Landing is on the grounds of the former Pendray House at 3221 Heatherbell Rd. in Colwood.
