This higher-scale condo development will rub shoulders in the future with two more buildings which will be different stratas.
The location is very interesting - it's in the South End, just a couple blocks from downtown, directly adjacent to the waterfront railyards. This area is expected to develop significantly in the coming years - it's already begun two blocks away on Haliburton St, and the City plans to extend the harbourfront walkway system, which would further open this area and add value.
The two lowest units are 589 sqft and 785 sqft, with small patio areas.. The other 12 units are above, with balconies - they are all about 1345 sqft . Features include hardwood flooring, quartz countertops, under-cabinet lighting, a gated private historic park, built-in vacuums, large kitchen pantries, 24-hour surveillance, heated floors in the bathrooms, 10 foot ceilings, and secure underground parking.
The name comes from Samuel Robins, a well-liked manager of one of the mining companies in the 1800s. He established a garden here, using exotic trees donated by ship captains arriving in Nanaimo from abroad. Many of these trees remain on the site and they are HUGE. Residents have a private oasis within these trees, gated off from the street. Balconies on the north side of the building enjoy a CLOSE perspective into this garden (units 102, 202, 203, 302, 303, 402, 403).
Note: This development was originally called "Robins Grove".
