6-storey Boardwalk project to complete Selkirk Waterfront
Site preparation and excavation has begun on The Boardwalk, a six storey mixed-use office, commercial and condo project at Burnside-Gorge’s Selkirk Waterfront Community.
After 20 years of construction on industrial land once occupied by a lumber processing facility, Boardwalk will rise above Selkirk Waterfront’s last un-developed parcel and complete one of the most successful mixed-use urban redevelopment projects in Victoria.
Originally planned as a condo building with groundfloor retail, developer Jawl Properties decided to re-envision the site (officially located at 2950 Jutland Road) and accommodate several of Selkirk Waterfront’s existing office tenants “bursting at the seems,” as company representative Robert Jawl stated earlier in the year.
The 65,000 square foot building is expected to be completed in 2014 with a construction start by late 2012 or early 2013.
Elsewhere at Selkirk Waterfront one of the community’s first commercial anchor tenants, Fortis Gas, is vacating its headquarters and moving to a purpose-built facility on the west shore. Three acres of surface parking and storage space used by Fortis will now sit largely empty, and while the potential for transforming the land is a possibility Jawl is not actively pursuing formal redevelopment plans at this time.
