In Victoria, renovations are nearly complete on Concert’s latest rental development, The Q Apartments. Centrally located on the edge of Victoria’s vibrant downtown core in the tree-lined James Bay neighbourhood, the 124-suite rental development is being created through an extensive renovation of the former Queen Victoria Hotel.
Our plan was to marry the mid-century modern aesthetic of this iconic 1960s building with modern conveniences including wood-look vinyl plank flooring, contemporary carpeting, and fully-equipped kitchens with new, energy efficient appliances. The Q Apartments offer a mix of efficiently planned studio, one and two bedroom apartments; all backed by Concert’s signature round-the-clock Concert On Call service. Amenities include a resident lounge, card-operated laundry, bicycle storage and fitness centre complete with sauna and change rooms.
Lease applications will be accepted in early February, with first move-ins planned for April 1, 2014. To learn more about The Q Apartments, please visit www.TheQApartments.com.
While Concert has brought one hotel and five condominium developments to the City of Victoria over the past 12 years, The Q Apartments represent the company’s first rental property in Victoria. The development also represents an enduring commitment to developing rental housing. While Concert has expanded considerably since our creation in 1989 and our original mandate to construct purpose-built rental housing in Vancouver, the company has never lost sight of the importance of constructing rental housing. In fact, with the completion of The Q Apartments, Concert will have added 938 rental apartments to its portfolio within the last 12 months alone.
