RJAG and I used to have a great friend who owned a split level condo just slightly east along Esquimalt Road from that location with a stunning view of the harbour, Laurel and Ogden Points from the rooftop deck that ran along the entire breadth of the building. That area is seriously underrated in terms of 'view', providing some of the very best water vistas anywhere in the city core....

I hope they can put some nice commercial space in. Those old buildings actually give that area it's urban feel.

My latest post is up. This time on the Bricks of Government Street.  http://www.sidewalki...ent-street.html

Saw the other day something is finally under construction at 3959 Shelbourne Street.  (Shelbourne frontage of Tuscany Village).  My apologies if this has already been mentioned elsewhere.  I did find the other cancelled project thread that is now locked.

 

Anybody got intel on what it's going to be?

Don't be so sure.:cool:

So they're moving from across the street then? Wonder what's going to happen to the old building next to JJ Morgan's?

^Interesting proposition, the site is large and JJ Morgan's demographic does not have a strong future outlook.

What a poor use of the land in this location. It seems odd that a new bank branch couldn't have been located in a more substantial structure. I would have thought the property was too valuable for a one-storey building.

Totally agree. Nice enough building for a stand-alone bank branch, but what happened to the idea of greater density along the Shelbourne corridor? This is such a great area for walkability - near UVIC, grocery and services, buses, and a soon-to-be-improved bike corridor.   It's a shame this was not a proposal for some additional height for condo or rentals above.  (And their design calls for half the lot going to surface parking.)

Isn't this the second new CIBC being built along that corridor now? There is one on Cedar Hill X too.

^ Nope, maybe you're thinking of VanCity? There is a CIBC in Hillside mall. Are people still going to be visiting bank locations in 10 or 20 years? How are they going to pay this thing off? I haven't stepped foot in a bank in years.

 

Seems like a shortsighted plan for Shelbourne. Long live the strip mall!
