Marketing campaign beginning for oceanfront development in Comox
Comox Bay Marina and Residences is launching its 2012 campaign, which coincides with Comox Council’s adoption of its 2012 – 2015 Strategic Plan that identifies downtown vitalization and marina enhancement as one of the Town’s strategic priorities.
Comox Bay Marina and Residences is a proposed three-storey oceanfront residence located in the heart of Comox, next to the Marina and Marinaside Park. The building would combine luxury and resort style amenities with 62 fully furnished suites, a seaside restaurant and pub, outdoor pool and fire pits, and underground, heated parking.
Comox Bay is being developed by the creators of the Oswego Hotel, an award-winning West Coast inspired boutique hotel in downtown Victoria. The 2012 campaign includes the first phase of full ownership suites, which come with option to secure moorage at the marina, one of the most popular on Vancouver Island. It offers sunny southwest exposure alongside breathtaking ocean and mountain views.
“Comox Bay has been well received and is getting lots of interest from across Western Canada, but what has impressed us is the local interest from the Comox Valley,” says Jamie Edwards of Royal LePage Comox.
The suites are designed by Vancouver-based BBA Design, which is responsible for a number of luxury resorts on the West Coast, including the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino and Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet. The fully furnished suites feature oversized windows, fully equipped kitchens, hard wood floors and stone countertops each with sweeping views of the ocean and surrounding mountains.
The vast array of recreational activity available in the Comox Valley has encouraged a burgeoning tourism industry, which has been growing steadily in the past few years. Visitors to the Comox Valley take up 43.5 per cent of the rooms in the region, show figures from the Ministry of Labour.
“Locals know the outstanding views from Comox Bay complement the convenience of its premium location,” Edwards says. “It offers the best of the Comox Valley in the heart of downtown Comox, right next to the Marina and park.”
