Riverstone Place - 20 Barsby Ave.
These condos are expected to be completed sometime in 2021 (but as of February 2020, it's getting pretty close already...).
The location is exotic and extremely historic; this was the site of the Hudson Bay Company's first waterwheel and mill in Nanaimo, beginning in the early 1850s. The small but powerful Millstone River (or Millstream as it is also called) makes a dramatic twist around some canyon walls and down some rapids near the condominium site, then it slows down and passes underneath a bridge and into the harbour.
According to the development permit application submitted to the City, Riverstone Place is planned to have 6 stories with a total of 90 units. There will be 1-bedroom units, 1-bed +den units, and 2-bedroom units.
The condos will sit on an elbow of land just above Barsby Park, through which the river runs. Residents will enjoy the short walk through this park, and they have the option of extending that walk to the Harbourfront Walkway or to Bowen Park.
Update: As of February 2020, most units have already pre-sold. Here is a sense of the remaining inventory - all but one are 2-bed units (contact me for floorplans):
- Plan A - sold out
- Plan B - $379,900-$399,900
- Plan B1 - $387,900-$429,900
- Plan C - $419,900-$453,900
- Plan D - sold out
- Plan E (1-bed) - $263,900
- Plan F - $374,900-$389,900
- Plan H - sold out
I can't show current listings on this page because the Vancouver-based marketing agency hasn't opted into broker reciprocity in the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board area. However, if you contact me I can send you all of the information promptly. I don't recommend approaching the developer's agent, as you deserve your own representation, and it costs you nothing.
