Concert Announces a New Era in Downtown Victoria

This fall Concert will be releasing Era, its highly anticipated residential development in Victoria.

Era represents the most affordable new concrete residence in downtown Victoria and is located on Yates Street at Blanshard. Era will stand 16 storeys tall and contain 157 homes ranging from studio to two bedroom plus den urban flats. This central and prominent downtown Victoria location is within walking distance of Victoria’s Inner Harbour and a wide range of shops, restaurants, entertainment and other services.

Much like Victoria itself, Era harmoniously blends new with old by seamlessly integrating the existing historic brick façade with modern concrete and glass architecture. With most homes priced incredibly from $198,900 to $398,900, Era will appeal to first-time buyers and investors alike.

Era is the fifth residential development Concert has undertaken in the garden city. The residences of Astoria, Belvedere, Chelsea, 365 Waterfront – and now Era – stand as evidence of Concert’s integrity and commitment to building quality homes in Victoria.

Savvy buyers send a clear signal at Salt

Sales of Salt – Concert’s most recent condominium tower in downtown Vancouver – began only a few short months ago but this exciting new development has already proven to be a resounding success. Enthusiastic and savvy purchasers recognized Salt’s exceptional value and as a result over 85% of the homes are already sold.

Located in the emerging Downtown South neighbourhood, Salt represents one of the first opportunities to purchase in this up-and-coming area. This slender and striking residential highrise stands 33 storeys and offers panoramic views stretching from False Creek and English Bay to the North Shore Mountains.

For more information on the great selection of view homes still available please visit our Sales Centre and fully-furnished Display Suite located at 1451 Hornby Street (between Pacific and Beach) from noon – 5pm daily, except Friday. You may also wish to view our website at www.SaltCondos.com.

Construction update: Palomar at Village Gate West

Palomar at Village Gate West is the latest addition to Concert’s portfolio of new rental homes in Toronto. This 26-storey highrise and 4-storey townhome complex is the final component of Concert’s master-planned community of Village Gate West in Etobicoke.

The building exterior and the majority of landscaping are already complete and efforts have now shifted to finishing the interior. Palomar remains on schedule for occupancy in January 2012.



Profile: Our first Sustainability Manager, Jonathan Meads

In keeping with our commitment to environmental sustainability we have recently named Jonathan Meads as Concert’s first Sustainability Manager. Jonathan will lead and coordinate the company’s sustainability activities across the country. Specifically he will focus on improving the performance of Concert’s existing assets in addition to ensuring that sustainability is always kept ‘top of mind’ in the design of future Concert buildings.

Jonathan joined Concert in 2006 as Construction Project Manager and while he will remain an integral part of our construction group, his focus will be his new role. Having completed his university honours dissertation on energy efficiency and spent time involved in retrofitting commercial properties prior to joining Concert, Jonathan has always held a strong interest in sustainability.

Jonathan is the driving force behind the calculation of Concert’s global greenhouse gas emissions.

“By tracking the company’s operations and the performance of our assets we will be able to see the results of the steps we have taken,” says Meads. “Not only will this help us keep on track towards our commitment to reduce emissions 20% by 2020, it will allow us to see what strategies are the most effective. This information can be used in the future to help us become more integrated in our approach to sustainability.”

The results for 2010 and other sustainability-related stories can be found in our annual Report on Sustainability. The inaugural report was recently released – electronically of course – and can be accessed here on our website.
