With a gorgeous James Bay townhome being just ONE of the eight incredible grand prizes that BC Children’s Hospital Lottery is offering up this year, it’s easier than ever to see why this is the perfect area to make your forever home.

This year’s lottery sold out in record-setting time! Stay tuned for the Grand Prize Draw on Tuesday, November 10. Winner will choose their dream home on Vancouver Island, in Vancouver or the Lower Mainland, or the Okanagan. Or, $2.2 million cash.

As if one of Capital Park Residence’s 1,443 sq.ft. three-level, 2-bedroom townhomes wasn’t draw enough, its location is to-die-for – picturesque James Bay is one of the most sought-after communities in Victoria, and here are 6 of its amenities you won’t want to miss out on:

1. James Bay Square has everything you need and more

With everything in walking distance and basically at your fingertips, James Bay Square offers up grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants – and even a popular Victoria liquor store!

2. Did somebody say Red Barn?

If you’ve lived in Victoria, you know what a Red Barn Market sandwich tastes like! The Red Barn Market is part of the new Capital Park development located right behind the BC Parliament Buildings. The new development includes a brand new library, government offices and condominiums.

3. Local chocolates at Bird Cage Confectionary

A staple in Victoria’s oldest neighbourhood, James Bay, since 1915, the Birdcage Confectionary continues to operate to serve the neighbourhood selling flowers, local cheeses, chocolates, and of course the bags of barley to feed the local duck population!

4. Fresh-cut flowers from Fine Floral Designs

You’ll never be left wondering where to buy beautiful blooms again! A staple of Victoria and the James Bay area, Fine Floral promises to wow you with the finest floral arrangements and gifts.

5. Late night drinks or even brunch at Bent Mast Pub

Serving up local craft brews and authentic Canadian eats in a refurbished 1880’s house, the Bent Mast is the perfect spot to wind down after a long day – and they even serve brunch!

6. The ocean is literally steps from your front door

At Capital Park Residences, you’re minutes from the inner harbour and the waterfront. The beautiful new development also offers a unique rooftop patio with stunning views – perfect for entertaining or BBQing during the upcoming warmer months!

James Bay is connected to the very best Victoria has to offer – whatever inspires you, you’ll find it nearby, more often within easy walking distance.

You’re as close to the natural splendor of rugged ocean beaches, amazing hiking and the scenic waterfront as you are to Victoria’s most popular restaurants, shopping and entertainment.

Living at Capital Park provides you with the choices and opportunities that define an inspired lifestyle.

Capital Park represents a historic collaboration between two of Victoria’s most respected developers, Concert and Jawl Properties.
