Tresah Victoria: A New Era in Sustainable Living
Introduction to Tresah in Victoria
Tresah, located at Speed & Frances in Victoria, is a groundbreaking development by Mike Geric Construction, marking Victoria’s first condominium high-rise. This innovative project, designed by D’AMBROSIO architecture + urbanism, is set to transform the Burnside Gorge neighbourhood with its unique blend of sustainability and modern living.
Tresah Victoria is a vision for a sustainable, community-oriented future in Victoria. With its innovative design, commitment to environmental sustainability, and a range of living options, Tresah is poised to become a landmark in Victoria’s urban landscape. The expected completion of Tresah is in 2022, marking a new chapter in sustainable living in Victoria.
The Architectural Marvel of Tresah Victoria
Tresah comprises two distinct buildings – Tresah East and Tresah West. Tresah East is a 6-storey light building housing 66 homes, including ground-level townhomes and units dedicated to affordable home ownership. Tresah West, on the other hand, is a 12-storey residential high-rise with 179 residences. This building is notable for its double-height work/live spaces.
Sustainability and Design
Tresah West is not just an architectural statement but also a commitment to environmental sustainability. This construction method offers a lighter environmental footprint, supports the local forest industry, and provides better affordability. The buildings’ design, featuring richly-coloured brick-clad bases and luminous warm white facades, integrates seamlessly with the character of the neighbourhood, preserving the beautiful London Plane trees that line Speed Avenue.
Living Spaces and Floor Plans
Tresah Victoria offers a variety of living spaces to cater to different needs. Tresah West includes 55 studios, 103 one-bedroom, and 21 two-bedroom units. Tresah East, targeting first-time home buyers, offers 41 studios, 22 one-bedroom, and 5 two-bedroom units. A portion of Tresah East’s units will be available under the BC Housing Affordable Homeownership program, making sustainable living accessible to more people.
Amenities and Community Spaces
Residents of Tresah Victoria will enjoy a range of amenities designed to enhance community living. Tresah West features a common roof deck for shared use, while Tresah East boasts a communal green space with a timber pavilion and seating. The development also includes a grass dog walk area and a lane functioning as an informal local street with sidewalks and boulevard landscaping.
Parking and Transportation
Understanding the diverse needs of its residents, Tresah Victoria offers flexible parking options. The development includes a one-level underground parkade with 211 bicycle spaces and 127 vehicle stalls, along with additional surface vehicle stalls.
