The Hudson District: Victoria’s New Hub

The Hudson is quickly becoming downtown Victoria’s new hub—the go-to neighbourhood for everything on your to-do list. With a diverse mix of local businesses now at your service, you can relax completely at Hudson Yoga and then get caffeinated up again at 2% Jazz Coffee Shop. Experience the bliss of stone therapy massage at Designhouse Salon, and tuck into some southern-style bar-be cue at Smoken Bones. But there’s one new tenant that has Victoria especially excited.

Public Market at The Hudson

For years Victoria Downtown Public Market Societyhas been lobbying to get back into the downtown area in a space they could call a permanent home. Now a partnership with Townline will hopefully give them just that: a year-round location as The Hudson Public Market. The Society is working towards securing 60% of the space with permanent vendors, and hopes to open the Hudson Public Market next spring, making the Hudson District a true neighbourhood destination. With an ever-growing focus on eating local, the timing couldn’t be better, and consumers are looking forward to the opportunity to fill their baskets with products of the island’s fields, orchards, and waters. The bustling market will animate this neighbourhood and draw food-focussed shoppers from throughout the city.

Penthouse Prize

The Hudson was honoured to have been chosen as one of the BC Children’s Hospital Dream Lottery grand prizes this year. An extremely lucky winner could choose to call one of our penthouses home: a luxurious new 2-level loft style home sitting atop a gracious heritage building, with modern interiors, in the heart of downtown Victoria’s energetic new neighbourhood. And as if the elegantly furnished penthouse wasn’t exciting enough, the prize package also includes a new BMW Cabriolet, a new Mini Cooper, a trip for two to London, and over $1 million in tax-free cash. You have until October 11 to purchase your ticket; prizes will be drawn October 31 2012.

The Hudson’s penthouse and two-bedroom display home can be viewed at 602–770 Fisgard Street. Call
