A Unique Opportunity in Attainable Home Ownership
At the confluence of Fernwood and Harris Green comes Haven — a unique opportunity in attainable home ownership from Chard Development. The 1100 block of Johnson and Yates streets will be transformed into a mixed-use development featuring a 6-storey residential mid-rise, a mixed-use tower, and medical offices in a refurbished Victoria Professional Building.
Of the project’s 211 homes, Haven will offer 104 condominiums under BC Housing’s Affordable Home Ownership Program. Designed to appeal to families and young professionals, 35% of these homes have two or more bedrooms. The development will also include 107 market condominiums in a 12-storey highrise that features a large, purpose-built childcare facility and ground-floor retail space which will wrap the corner of Cook and Yates streets.
Built by a trusted local developer with a proven track record, Haven is where downtown relaxes into residential. Think graffiti art, food trucks, colourful heritage houses, communal gardens, bicycle shops, and yoga studios. On the cusp of everything cool in Victoria, you can really have it all.
