Lot 4 is For Sale...


Just saw this on the revamped Roundhouse Marketplace web site.  The next phase of Bayview Place, Lot 4, is for sale.  This is the seniors and residential development we've known about for some time.  However, I don't recall seeing any details on this before so I'm posting a few slides from the pdf file.  http://focusequities...t_V5_July16.pdf

Is there a covenant on these parcels? What's to stop somebody buying them and then asking for a rezoning to something different?

I recall there is a covenant in place that prevents the buildings from blocking the Bayview view.


At the street fair when I was speaking to the Roundhouse/Focus guy he mentioned that the seniors center was almost set to go. I don't remember his wording but I took it as they were ready to start building. Given the date on the offering, maybe he meant that the approvals were all in place.


(The tennis court near Esquimalt Road keeps showing up. As far as I know Promontory owns that parcel and I haven't seen any plans to add the court)

Surveyors also spent considerable time there over the last few weeks.

So if the tennis court is on private property, would it be for the public (public amenity) or for the Development residents only?

'Development residents' would mean it's locked... public could bring more than just 'tennis' being played in it. Not sure I like the latter.

Yes, because all of the public tennis courts in the city are overrun by the filthy evil public  :whyme:

You should know by now those people stick to green, provincially owned properties in the core.

Quick recap of what's going on. Unfortunately I was not able to connect with a Focus Equities representative prior to publishing the piece.




Seniors residence and a low-rise condo slated for Vic West's Bayview Place development



The next phase of Vic West’s 20-acre Bayview Place community will consist of a seniors residence and a low-rise residential building, according to marketing materials released by land owner Focus Equities.


The company is looking to secure partners that will take its approved plans and carry the vision through to completion, an option already used at the multi-phased development’s last two phases (one of which has been completed and the second currently underway). [Full article]

"The next piece in the Bayview Place puzzle will soon be coming out of the ground with a deal to build a seniors residence on the 20-acre Songhees site.

Bayview has reached a deal with Vancouver-based Element Lifestyle Retirement for nearly two acres of land below the Bayview One residential tower that will be used to establish a 153,000-square-foot seniors facility.

“This is a critical element for this community,” said Ken Mariash, founder of Focus Equities, which is the master developer of the Bayview site. “And they were our first choice for it.”

Element envisions a five-storey, $75-million complex where it intends to establish an “intergenerational, growing-and-aging-in-place community.”

For reference, here's Element's current mid-rise project in Vancouver's Cambie Village.

would this work? what if the main entrance was up above using bayview's driveway, and another exit on the lower level, leading to a E&N stop in the middle of the circle?

would this work?

It's an interesting idea, but would it still work at the same height as the current plan? Alas, curved buildings are never going to be especially prolific in our region.
