Discover Tresah in Victoria’s Midtown & Sidney’s The Rise on Fifth by Mike Geric Construction


Discerning homebuyers looking for the right property understand it’s all about finding a good fit. It’s a home that will work for you and your family today, tomorrow, and in the future.

Well-designed buildings with quality craftsmanship, coupled with highly livable locations that embrace amenity-rich neighbourhoods across Greater Victoria, and access to nature, by most accounts, is the ultimate dream home.

It’s a prospect rooted in reality that Mike Geric Construction (MGC) wholly embraces, an Island industry leader in sustainable multi-family large condo developments.

Vibrant and accessible locations

“One of the greenest things a developer can do is choose a good location and build a condo close to where all the services already exist,” says Ed Geric, owner and president, Mike Geric Construction. “Something with a great walkability score, where you are empowered to choose whether you actually need a car.”

“When I look at Tresah, for example, it’s in Victoria’s Midtown, the heart of the Mayfair District. The mall, recreation, and services are there, and more importantly, it’s on the Douglas Corridor, where a future transit system’s stop will be at the Mayfair Shopping Centre, providing ease of access to all parts of Greater Victoria.”

Retired couple and downsizers Jill and Dean Stokes, know all about the importance of location. They purchased a MGC condo in Travino, a five-building master-planned community in Royal Oak, where proximity to amenities was a priority.

“I’ve lived in Victoria my entire life and it’s an excellent location,” reveals Jill. “We walk to the grocery store and restaurants—Broadmead Village is so close—we walk there all the time. I do a lot of running, too, and there’s nearby trails and Elk Lake.”

“We bought a corner home and the quality and value are top-notch,” she adds. “There’s a real community atmosphere that makes everybody feel welcomed and safe, and of course, the affordability was attractive. We’ve never been happier.”

To Geric, affordability is all about supply. “I provide what I call generational housing: some market rental, affordable rental, affordable home ownership, and market sale condos. To do those things in one larger development, you need increased density, which is supply.”
