Esplanade condos now on the market
Have you ever wondered what that multi-story brick building is that has been under construction for a few years now on Esplanade? It is on the site of Robins Gardens and was the home site of a coal mine superintendent in the late 1800's. Apparently the owner was a serious gardener and imported many exotic plants and trees from far and wide. Many of these have been preserved by the current owner/developer who is clearly at the forefront of bringing new life to this very tired part of Nanaimo.
The condos are being sold by a local company and it is said the units are selling in the $600K range. The owner has plans for two more buildings on this site eventually as the development proceeds.
