A beautiful conversion of one of downtown Victoria’s heritage buildings, the Monaco combines old world charm in the funky urban heart of downtown Victoria. Approved by the City of Victoria for a ten year tax holiday, the Monaco features 12’ ceilings, bamboo floors, stainless steel appliances, parking, granite countertops and in-suite laundry.
Located at Johnson and Government Streets, the Monaco is surrounded by some of the finest restaurants, cafes, galleries and cultural opportunities in Western Canada. With the provincial legislature, Bastion Square, Market Square and the shops of Government Street steps away, the Monaco puts you right in the middle of the warmest and liveliest small city on the coast.
Completed in September 2007, the Monaco retains much of the building’s original character. Exposed brick and beams merge with modern appliances and architecture to give the residences an authentic heritage style in a beautifully designed and laid out space.
The neighbourhood offers extraordinary dining, whatever taste you might have. Canada’s oldest and most distinct Chinatown district lies a block north with several of the nation’s finest vegetarian and haute cuisine restaurants within easy walking distance. A café rests at the base of the building.
Units at The Monaco are investment opportunities. Victoria is a premier tourism and convention destination seeing millions of visitors each year. The Monaco has 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.
