Why you should live here
Throughout history, great pairs have coloured story lines into great works of art – Antony and Cleopatra, Fred and Ginger, da Vinci and Mona Lisa. Symbiotically, one is hardly recalled without the other and so goes the tale of iconic duos. With this powerful imagery in mind, Chard Development Ltd. introduces Duet – an idyllic duplet of residential buildings nestled amid James Bay, one of Victoria, BC’s most established neighborhoods.
It is safe to say Chard Development, its founder and partners have taken a vested interest in the success and livability of Victoria, BC. The notable success of their previous projects – Corazon, Juliet, The 834 and The Sovereign (currently under construction) – has evolved downtown living and established Chard as leaders of urban living. This latest project – Duet – a fourth collaboration with Victoria’s Farmer Construction, promises to deliver the same quality and sensitivity but with an intimacy true to the James Bay neighborhood.
The much anticipated launch of Duet East, an 8-storey concrete and steel building, and the recently launched Duet West, a 4-storey wood-frame construction, will bring 90 modern homes to the James Bay neighbourhood. Thoughtfully designed in close collaboration with the James Bay Neighborhood Association and City of Victoria, Duet will be the community’s first major residential development project in many years. Ample underground parking is provided although a small number suites will be offered without parking for reasons of affordability. These extra spaces will be available for purchase by other owners. Extensive exterior landscaping including Garden Suites with walk-out terraces, a central semi-private courtyard and quintessentially Victorian Akebono cherry trees will tie in the aesthetic of historic James Bay and neighboring Beacon Hill Park gardens.
Residents will appreciate the attention to finishings, security and amenities which include state-of-the-art fire protection systems, video enterphone, a fully-furnished conference room facility and resident building manager. Exteriors of brick and pre-cast concrete will be accented with natural wood and metal details. Secured parking, storage unit and bicycle stanchions will be standard and aptly suited to James Bay lifestyle. Select Energy Star appliances, low VOC finishes, and roller-shaded exterior Low-E windows will minimize energy consumption and utility expenses while maximizing the efficiency of Duet condo units. Public areas will function under self-adjusting LED and fluorescent lighting, contributing to lower operating costs.
Duet will relish in popularity for its prime location. While preserving site lines from all angles, 90 Duet condo units between the East and West structures will approximate ideal Victoria, BC living. Just steps away from Beacon Hill Park, the Dallas Road waterfront, Victoria’s picturesque Inner Harbour, BC Legislature, schools, community centers, boutique village shopping and countless activities, Duet residents will enjoy a quality of life quantifiably by hours lived in happiness.
