What's going on at 819 View Street and 819 Yates Street?
Uses: rentals, commercial
819 Yates is a mixed-use rental residential and ground floor commercial project spanning the 800 blocks of Yates and View streets in downtown Victoria's Harris Green neighbourhood. The tower will rise 15 floors above Yates Street and recede to 11 floors over View Street.
Proposed by Chard Development, 819 Yates will be the developer's first all-rental residential project in Victoria and it's largest residential development undertaking to-date.
The property was originally rezoned for two towers of 17 and 11 floors by Dubai-based Emaar Properties, developers of the World's Tallest Building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Chard purchased the property in 2011.
6,600 square feet of ground floor commercial space across two units will front onto Yates Street.
