I was walking downtown yesterday and on my way to Chinatown and saw a new sign for the Pearl Residences development that’s in the works. While the official website for this project is still in the works, we’ll take a look at what we do know now with this exciting new building.
Situated on the 1600-block of Store Street on the doorstep of Chinatown, The Pearl Residences will be eight floors high, contain 133 units with a mixed-use condominium residence and some ground floor commercial space.
This area is in need of more development in our opinion, as is right now the lot they’re building on is currently a parking lot. The surrounding area all the way to Rock Bay will slowly become a more vibrant community with homes and businesses.
The Pearl Residences is a project by FARMER and the architect who’s done the design is coming out of D’Ambrosio Architecture + Urbanism who is also based out of Victoria. This development is slated to be completed sometime in 2019 and I cannot wait to write about some of those bridge facing units.
