Located near Fisherman’s Wharf and Ogden Pointe in Victoria’s historic James Bay neighbourhood. Dallas Pointe’s exteriors use contemporary West Coast wood materials including B.C.

With the Inner Harbour just a 15-minute walk, this location combines the best of city and seaside living.
James Bay sits at the edge of Vancouver Island, surrounded by the calm waters of the Victoria Harbour and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To the east lies Beacon Hill Park, providing a luscious green landscape.
Tourism plays a significant role in the economy of James Bay, both because it hosts many tourist destinations and because it is home to the Ogden Point cruise ship terminal. During the summer months, James Bay’s extensive waterfront is alive with activity. Many of Victoria’s key attractions are located in the neighbourhood, including the Parliament Buildings, Royal BC Museum, Beacon Hill Park, Fisherman’s Wharf and many hotels and bed and breakfast establishments. Horse-drawn carriages and waterfront walkways also serve as a draw.
The heart of the neighbourhood is James Bay Village, filled with local shops and services. James Bay is an extremely walkable and bike-able neighbourhood and acts as a hub for many community sporting events that use Dallas Road as a major portion of their routes.
The parkland in James Bay is extensive. The neighbourhood contains a large portion of Beacon Hill Park. Other parks include Holland Point Park along Dallas Road, waterfront parkland in the Laurel Point area, MacDonald Park, Fisherman’s Wharf Park, neighbourhood parks (e.g., Irving Park which is located beside the seniors complex) and several other open spaces owned and managed by other levels of government.
