Split into two towers with 13,000 sq ft of connecting commercial space, The Falls will add yet another touch of elegance and innovative design to the revitalized lower Douglas St. neighbourhood. When completed in 2009, The Falls will boast 155 luxurious units divided between the 18-story northwest tower and the 13-story southeast tower. Commercial space at the base of the building will house a HSCB bank branch and a restaurant.
One of the interesting architectural features will be a cascading waterfall element that originates on the top of the 18-story building flowing towards Fairfield Rd. The waterfall installation terminates at the corner of Douglas and Fairfield and will be the largest example of public art in the city.
Residents will enjoy watching or listening to the sound of gently rushing water from the tranquility of their terraces. Their units feature exquisite Italian kitchens, granite, marble and limestone surfaces, light or dark walnut hardwood flooring, light or dark pinewood cabinets, over-height ceilings, electric fireplaces and air conditioning. Many units also have outdoor gas fireplaces on their terraces.
The buildings will feature a well stocked fitness center and amenity room, an outdoor swimming pool with a large poolside lounge area, secure access and extraordinary views. Many terraces face the Inner Harbour offering unparalleled views of the Sooke Hills and unforgettable sunsets over the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Units at The Falls are investment opportunities. Victoria is a premier tourism and convention destination seeing millions of visitors each year. The Falls will have several units that are rented out on both short and long-term basis. Short term vacation or business rentals can be easily managed and provide a lucrative income during the high seasons.
Victoria’s harbour offers many forms of off-island transportation. The Falls is close to the seaplane terminal, ferries and the heliport. Travel to Vancouver, Seattle, Port Angeles and Bellingham is easy and convenient.
Ocean, luxury, the Inner Harbour, cafés, clubs, culture, fine dining and boutique shopping. Victoria is home to hundreds of extraordinary independent retailers and restaurateurs. It could become your home too. Visit The Falls and see the many ways Victoria’s lifestyle fits you.
