Cubes is your new mixed-use hub for home, work, restaurants and services

Melissa Vrabel has only been living in her new apartment for two weeks, but she’s already feeling at home.

“I love it. Everything’s so fresh and new —I moved from an older building that was a bit run down and it’s great to be in a brand new space. And it’s a huge plus having the washer and dryer right in my suite!”

With peaceful views of a school field outside and unique wood ceilings inside, Vrabel’s new Cubes apartment offers tranquility, nature and great style. When she’s not taking in the view on her new patio, Vrabel’s enjoyed using the bike and walking path to explore her neighbourhood and connect to the Aquatic Centre, North Island College and the Comox Valley Hospital just minutes away.

“It’s been exciting moving in. The neighbours are all great — there are a lot of young people moving in, and I can’t wait for the coffee shop to open downstairs,” she says.

Milano Coffee is opening soon, and other shops and medical services like North Island Dental will add to the already-vibrant neighbourhood.

“The look, design and Tom’s ‘community village’ concept was a perfect fit for us,” says Milano’s Robin Henry.

Prime location for home and business

For Dr. Cyrus Bachus, Cubes was the perfect spot to fulfill his dream of opening Comox Valley’s newest dental practice.

“Location, location, location! The proximity to North Island Hospital, North Island College, major shopping centres and the military base made Cubes the easy choice,” he says. “Knowing that other successful businesses have also partnered with Tom Moore, the developer, gave us comfort in knowing that this location is a winning combination.”

In designing the building, Comox Valley native Tom Moore incorporated sustainable, healthy building features like Heat Recovery Ventilation and local building materials, and Dr. Bachus was excited to partner with a fellow innovator.

“Our plan with North Island Dental is to set a new standard for dental care using state-of-the art innovation and technology. We wanted to find a landlord that matched our goal of being a hub of innovation. With their electric car charging stations and excellent air quality, Cubes matched our vision of Innovation in the Comox Valley,” he says.
