An Update on Tresah
Date / November 26, 2021

Tresah is a signature Mike Geric Construction development, currently under construction in Midtown Victoria. This project has attracted homebuyers and investors because of its beautiful design, value and the opportunity to be part of the first major residential development in Victoria’s growing Midtown neighbourhood.

As we’ve been planning for the upcoming construction of phase 2, Tresah West, we’ve come to a decision that mass timber is no longer the best structural material for this building. There are challenges related to the mass timber supply chain, market demand, lack of local mass timber expertise and materials pricing that have led us to the decision to build with another structural material. This change will ensure we can deliver this building effectively and in a timely manner.

I’m very excited to announce that Tresah West will be built with recycled, lightweight steel and concrete. We’ve chosen this innovative approach because it’s sustainable, durable and has many benefits when it comes to the speed and simplicity of construction, home design and building maintenance and operations.

Though we are changing the building’s structural material, the overall design and quality will remain the same, as will our building schedule for Tresah. As a builder with more than 50 years of experience in this local market, we are very happy to have a construction plan in place to deliver Tresah without delay.

We look forward to showcasing this innovative and beautiful structure as we begin construction in the months ahead. In light of our new structural plans, we will be closing our presentation centre for a brief period to refresh it with a bright and spacious new look. It will reopen in early December. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our sales team with any questions you have.

Sincerely,

Edward Geric,

President & CEO
