Harris Green offers active urban downtown living, with many new residential and commercial developments in the pipeline. This will be one of the highest growth neighbourhoods in victoria for both rental and strata ownership living.

The neighbourhoods walk/bike score of 99 mean it’s centralized location is perfect for the modern city dweller. The new Save on Foods on Pandora & Vancouver is an exciting new asset that will spark further gentrification.



In this video I will be conducting an overview of the Harris Green freehold strata condo buildings. I have been living in Harris Green since 2014 and have witnessed the remarkable positive change in the neighbourhood as it attracts new residents, businesses, and vibrancy. I love the ability to walk across the street for shopping, and then a short stroll downtown, cook street village, or beacon hill park. As I a REALTOR® and property owner in Harris Green I can provide you unique insight.

There are currently 1,784 freehold strata units with occupancy in Harris Green neighbourhood. There are 359 strata units actively under construction (The Wade, and the two building Chard project Vivid at Yates & Yates on Yates.

In Planning there is an additional projects in planning, but are likely to tend towards rental housing, and the density could vary significantly from the proposal and what ends up getting approved by council. For example:  129 units for the Pluto Site at View & Cook and 62 unit at 930 Fort 

So we can breakdown Harris Green in various ways. There are large buildings with over 200 units, and smaller buildings with as little as 6 units. There are older buildings, which generally offer larger floorplans, parking, storage. And there are newer buildings which tend to have significantly smaller unit sizes, but modern finishings and common area amenities. Parking ratios in newer buildings tend to be lower than older buildings.
