"The Vic" Condo Development in Barrie


Blog by Matthew & Robert Johnston | December 19th, 2016


The developer of a huge downtown Barrie condo is branching out, into the east end.

Advance Tech Developments announced plans Friday for a $50-million, 238-unit residential condominium at 290 Georgian Dr.

“That is the highest elevation in Barrie and we've actually scoped out that area in terms of what the views look like,” said Joe Santos of Advance Tech. “So it has a tremendous view of Oro (Medonte Township) and Little Lake, but also you can see the outline of Lake Simcoe all the way down to Keswick.”

Santos said the zoning is already in place for the property, and that Advance Tech is talking to city planning staff about a site plan.

To be near Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH), it's to be high-end condo living called 'The Vic'.

Santos said the property's zoning allows 15 storeys, and this project's height will be in that range.

Amenities at The VIC Condos will include a rooftop terrace, party room, underground parking, car sharing program, dog wash station and a total wellness centre with a gym and yoga zone.

The VIC Condos Highlights:
-Across from Barrie’s Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre
-Near Georgian College Campus
-Close to shopping, dining and entertainment
-Nearby parks include Georgian Baseball Field
