Uptown Place offers the expansive views of Saanich while offering all the amenities of a compact downtown.

Downtown feel, Uptown space

Almost all 76 units of Uptown Place's first phase are sold - the first building is slated for openin in December

Bike, walk, car or bus, everything is easy about getting in and out of Uptown Place.

The first phase of the two-building Saanich development overlooking Uptown shopping centre is nearly sold out.

All 76 units will no doubt be full by the time they’re ready in December, says Travis Lee of Tri-Eagle Developments. Marketing for the second building has begun, due in June 2015.

“There’s one three bedroom left, it seems the one and three bedrooms are the fastest moving units in the building.”

Single bedroom units for Uptown Place come in three floor plans starting at $250,000, while the remaining three bedroom suite available is $600,000.

If there’s a downside to the open-space floor plans with panoramic Saanich views it’s the humdrum of traffic along the Pat Bay and Island highways below.

But then again, being able to jump on either of Greater Victoria’s major traffic arteries in a matter of seconds is one heck of an access point. The same goes for the Galloping Goose and Lochside trails, as Uptown Place is situated near both, conveyor belts for regional cycling commuters. Uptown Place is the first Tri-Eagle development with a bike fixing station, in addition to bike storage.

“The main attraction of building here is the walking distance to Uptown shopping centre, which, when you look at the density and services, offers everything a downtown centre offers,” Lee says.

Uptown Place is smartly in line with Saanich’s official community plan for higher density and family developments, though there is nothing forced about it.

The first floor of the four storey buildings are ideal family town homes with exterior entrances and patio yard areas, fenced in private yards. The second, third and fourth floors are condos with one, two and three bedroom floor plans that maximize the surrounding views of Saanich and Victoria.

“We’re Saanich developers, we identified the neighbourhood as one to invest in because of the shopping centre. It’s right on the Galloping Goose and Lochside intersection, with plenty of bike storage and the fixing station because we believe that’s who is interested in Uptown Place,” Lee said.

Access to B.C. Transit will also become easier as the regional transportation hub plans to relocate to the area.

“Everything is falling into place for this to be a high growth area,” Lee said.

Next up for Tri-Eagle is the Thunderbird, an eight-storey residential mid-rise building in Royal Oak.
