For more than 40 years, a classic hotel presided quietly over the quaint James Bay neighbourhood, just steps from the sea. Now, this 13-storey building takes on a new life as a collection of 219 sophisticated rental homes with superb design, hotel-inspired amenities, and plenty of space for connection. The James at Harbour Towers offers a contemporary experience – in one of the most coveted locations in Victoria.
Acting as a steward to this iconic structure, local firm Omicron has undertaken a complete transformation of The James at Harbour Towers. Modernized systems and technology elevate daily living. Oversized windows flood rooms with warm sunlight. An array of shared spaces invites residents to go for a swim, get creative in a workspace, socialize with friends, fit in a workout, or enjoy the outdoors. Omicron’s careful conversion revitalizes the property while preserving thousands of tonnes of building materials, and swiftly delivering much-needed rental homes to James Bay.
The James at Harbour Towers offers unparalleled 360-degree views, from bird’s-eye perspectives of Victoria’s bustling inner harbour; to dramatic, sweeping vistas over the Salish Sea; down to historic neighbourhood streets, enchanting gardens, and seaside pathways. Walk to the waterfront, restaurants, shops, and the business district – and escape to this magical place at the end of every day.
