Uptown Place is a Build Green Silver two-phase 76-unit residential development located in the growing Uptown region of Victoria. It contains oversized windows that accentuate the outdoor views of Mt. Douglas and Swan Lake to the east and the setting sun in the west. West coast cedar siding and soffits were placed on the exterior to promote a continuous west coast modernist aesthetic. Every home on the main level has a self-contained patio, yard and own front door creating a townhouse feel that lessens the insular condominium building feeling and enhances the interaction with the streetscape and neighbours.
Uptown Place contains additional details that promote environmentally sensitive building practices and green lifestyles. To lessen the impact on the stormwater system, there are five strategically located rain gardens that circumnavigate both buildings. An apple tree was protected and resident-only community garden was built in order to increase local food production. Lastly, a secure bicycle room with a workbench was installed in the underground parkade to encourage cycling on the nearby Galloping Goose Trail and Lochside Regional Trail.
