...We don't have a thread for it?

It does seem odd that nothing specific to this project has been "threaded" yet.

Not sure if these have ever been shared here, or what the likelihood of them actually happening is, but it sure would be nice

More of that crosshatch cladding in the first pic. Same stuff as on the top level of Village Walk and the Store Street side of the proposal beside the Janion?

From RFS' link:

 

Victoria, BC - RG FOSTER Developments is proud to announce the Lampson & Esquimalt project as our first collaboration with the City of Victoria to develop a multi-family residential building. This project will have a total floor area of 48,100 sq.ft which will include 59 townhome units, 55 parking spots and bike storage.

 

The Admirals and Colville project is for sure going ahead. I had not heard about the Esquimalt and Lampson project, or the Nelson project.

I didn't know that applying for rezoning meant a collaboration with the City  :P

At the bottom of the page, there's another development shown for "Mackenzie Ave" in Victoria with an apparent separated bike lane. I assume they meant McKenzie, but there's no information beyond that. Looks nice, but the lack of information is strange.

Oh sorry. It was just from the bottom of the page RFS posted earlier with all of the Esquimalt projects:

That rendering is by Urban West Architecture for the site recently sold by Marker Group just below their Lyra project. The parcel runs along McKenzie and there are a couple of old derilict houses on the properties.

PPPdev is right. If you dig into the picture elements it is titled 804 Mckenzie night rendering! It just seems strange that the topography looks level and has a guarded bike lane. Would be a huge improvement for the area if this happened.

hmm. A separated bike lane from Quadra Bourdon all the way to 17 or even to TCH? Any bets on that happening in the next decade?

More likely to see that from Bourdon to UVic, not the other direction.

It could connect to the bike paths at Douglas Street, which in turn connect to Uptown and Royal Oak. Significant road widening would be required, though. From the look of that rendering, there's at least 3.0 m of additional width to accommodate the sidewalk, boulevard, and bikeway.
