Victoria's most expensive view...

Over the past few years, I've taken a few photos of the Shoal Point condos at the entrance to Victoria's harbour. I knew that they were expensive, but even I didn't realize just how expensive until recently.

An article in our local newspaper revealed that the penthouse suite -- the one you can see top right-hand corner of the building -- was owned by music producer David Foster. Foster is from Victoria but found fame and fortune in Hollywood as a music producer.  Over the years he has won seven Juno Awards and 16 Grammy awards. In the 80s and 90s, he hosted a number of high-profile sports events in Victoria as charity fundraisers. These were typically attended by acting, music and sports celebrities who Foster recruited to help him.

He just sold the 4200 square foot condo for a sweet $5 MILLION dollars.

According to the article:
"Features include large windows, hardwood floors, marble counters, high ceilings, recessed lighting, three fireplaces, a guest suite, and city and mountain views."

In front of the condo, you can see Fishermans Wharf, another Victoria landmark frequently highlighted in these pages.
