Just to clarify, that was intended to be a snarky comment about the overuse of plain panel cladding on several recent projects.

And to further clarify, I was referring to the plain panel cladding on the Craigflower project, not the plain panel cladding on the Linwood Ave. project.

I'm the developer for this one and happy to take comments and chat about it. It's a pretty exciting project for me (and I'll have new renderings soon based on more recent neighbourhood feedback). 

 

I looked at 15-17 units over the four floors, but I stuck with this density for a couple main reasons: 1.) It meant I could include five larger 2&3 bed homes (all over 1,000 square feet), as I want to offer a real opportunity for families to find a built-in community and trade in the commute for a place closer to where they worked.

 

And 2.), my research points to people being more likely to get to know each other, build relationships, problem solve and form community in multi-family developments when a building is this size or smaller (or when units are grouped into clusters of this size in larger buildings).

Yes, I agree that this rendering is a little plain as this was the initial concept to start discussions. We've done some work to break the building up and add some exterior detail features that I think work quite well. I'll post new renderings in the next few weeks as I further engage the neighbourhood.

Nice. I'll add my usual disclaimer that despite my griping I actually don't have a problem with panel cladding as a thing, just like I don't have any problem with spandrel as a thing. It's the excessive use of very plain panels that really gets me.

The Bridlewood Lane subdivision in North Saanich not far from Sidney's town centre is moving along.

The 21-home Bridlewood subdivision on the Peninsula is now 76% sold-out, if all pending deals (there are four) close.

Speaking of Abstract, I don't think there has been any mention of their Quadra@Palmer project. Replaces single-family homes at 3839, 3851, and 3861 Quadra Street. 6 storeys, 78 strata apartments, underground parking. They'll go through hell over the height I imagine, as the older apartments in the vicinity are 4-5 storeys. The drawings are here: https://www.saanich....jan3119elev.pdf

 

^ The other thing they'll get hell for: architectural style. Saanich will want something with a different character than what Abstract builds in Victoria proper. The project as proposed, though nice, would be more at home near Mayfair or on Pandora.

 

Well, I was sure wrong. This one at the corner of Quadra and Palmer was endorsed by Advisory Design Panel back in February, not sure when it's heading to Council though. The July 2020 revision is below.

There’s a hotel coming to West Shore Parkway at TCH, at the Goldstream Avenue terminus.

It’ll be situated at 2855 West Shore and 1365 Goldstream. Can-West (or Canwest) Hotels Ltd. is the proponent. These guys have built a variety of low rise hotels in B.C., under banners like Ramada and Fairfield Inn (I think it’s called).

Langford placed a covenant on the properties requiring construction of a hotel and townhouses. Vic News says that a total of 30 townhouses are currently proposed.

 

What is really interesting is the quote from the developer about the hotel brand, which implies that they already have a deal with a specific restaurant and are now looking for the right hotel operator.

Don't think I've seen this one mentioned: Joe Newell Architect is the applicant for a proposed mixed use development at 3851 Cedar Hill Crossroad. The proposal includes 41 residential units in a 4-storey building, and the relocation and renovation of Cedar Hill School to house administrative offices and program space.. The developer is M'akola on behalf of Community Living Victoria.

Looks very Langford-y. It's a weird location for what I assume is an affordable housing project, considering the lack of transit on Cedar Hill X Rd and the once per hour service on the 24 and 25 buses.

It is an affordable project, with emphasis on accessible units for individuals and families with intellectual disabilities. Lots of parking: 51 underground stalls plus 33 surface parking stalls.

I also found a presentation that has more info and drawings: https://www.communit...ng-development/

Two homes remain for sale.
