Neighbourhood

Urban, stylish and on the move. Like you.

Chard Development has long understood the potential of this neighbourhood. Throughout our fifteen years of building quality homes in this area we’ve shaped a new epicentre of energy downtown. Vivid at the Yates puts you right where you want to be at the centre of this thriving downtown neighbourhood.

From world-class restaurants to the hippest coffee joint in the city, you’ve got your pick of places to gather. Zip through the mid-block walkway to pick up your prescriptions and groceries on Yates, share a laugh over a local craft beer, or just put your feet up on the balcony and watch the bustle go by. It’s so alive here. So Vivid.

The building features

  • A gated mid-block walkway provides a direct connection to Yates Street.
  • Ground level retail spaces add vibrancy to the street.
  • A common rooftop terrace with dual gas BBQs, comfortable lounge areas and urban agriculture offers breathtaking views in all directions.
  • Architectural form and finishes are designed specifically to enhance the streetscape by layering the density of the building toward the ground.
  • A dark brick façade fades to lighter, more reflective materials above, creating an uncluttered aesthetic and a sense of the building fading into the sky.
  • Over-height double doors distinguish the lobby entrance from the dynamic retail frontage.
  • The recessed parkade entrance off of Johnson Street allows for a large motor court.

Building

A Chard-quality addition to the neighbourhood.

From its soaring architecture to the ground-level retail, Vivid adds vibrancy and grace to your street. True Chard quality is reflected in Vivid’s details: the uncluttered aesthetic of the exterior, the common rooftop BBQ lounge, the mid-block walkway connecting you to Yates. This home is a source of pride.

The interior features

  • Vivid reflects our Chard Smart philosophy and continuous attention to detail and quality.
  • Sleek stainless steel appliances include refrigerators with bottom freezer drawers, slide-in range, dishwasher, and combination microwave and hood fan.
  • A full-height tile backsplash complements solid surface countertops.
  • Like Vivid’s exterior, the interior is designed to be light and sophisticated, with a refined combination of materials designed to work together.
  • Wood-look vinyl plank flooring connects the living areas.

Homes

Sleek, space-savvy and simple: Vivid style awaits.

Intuitive and solidly designed, Vivid’s interiors reflect Chard’s approach to building quality homes. Simple, stylish materials maximize the sense of space and enhance livability: stainless appliances; wood-look vinyl flooring; sleek lighting and hardware. Modern, functional and designed with your downtown lifestyle in mind.

Team

We believe in downtown Victoria — and it shows.

We are Chard: an experienced team with a reputation for hands-on, quality craftsmanship. We are developers of relationships, kickstarters of community, builders of — and believers in — a downtown Victoria where there is room for everyone. Founded by West Coast real estate developer Dave Chard in 1994, we’re small enough to remember all the details, and big enough to shape a city.

Over the past fifteen years, we have revitalized Victoria’s downtown with functional, gracious and architecturally distinctive projects, building community and delivering on our vision of a city that promises an exciting, energetic urban lifestyle. Unique in its offering but Chard in its pedigree, Vivid is our ninth project in Victoria.

How it Works

A step-by-step guide to securing your home at Vivid.

1. Figure out if you qualify
Your household income less than $150,000? You are eligible to purchase at Vivid.
2. Understand the terms of engagement
Only you, the purchaser, can live at Vivid, and you must live at Vivid for a minimum of two years before selling.
3. Know your dough.
Have you got 10% to put down on the purchase price? Can you provide proof of financing?
4. Follow your paper trail.
Dig out your T4, T1, or your Notice of Assessment from the past two years.
5. Sign here.
Guess what? That’s a PURCHASE AGREEMENT!
6. Dot the I’s and cross the T’s.
Read the covenant, meet with a notary and with the third-party administrator, and attend the mandatory education session. Congratulations! You now have a hot downtown address, right here at Vivid.
