A Breath of Fresh Air
Rotunda by Aryze is a collection of 12 architectural infill homes adjacent to the BC Legislature in James Bay. Designed by D’Arcy Jones Architecture, Rotunda is classic and modern at the same time — inspired by an architectural sensibility that reflects the storied past, present, and future of the area.

Rotunda is at the centre of an amenity-rich neighbourhood, surrounded by Victoria’s best restaurants, museums, and shopping. You’ll also enjoy convenient access to the Royal BC Museum, Inner Harbour seawall, Beacon Hill Park, and the Dallas Road waterfront. Be at home with the best of the city at your doorstep.
