Sorry, it's a project by Bart Johnson of Breia Holdings Ltd., not Aryze.

 

Still, I'd like to get Aryze drunk and listen to what they really think about certain things.

 

Who says you have to get us drunk haha, just follow us on Twitter @talktoaryze

And speaking of Aryze, South Jubilee has posted the meeting minutes from the community meeting re: new student housing on Fort Street: http://www.southjubi...11-Mtgnotes.pdf

Man, reading those comments almost gave me a brain aneurysm. As I age, I hope to never feel so self-righteous as to gate-keep my neighbourhood by searching for every possible excuse to oppose something so obviously suitable for its site.

If only the people expressing concern over the availability of student housing actually meant what they said, maybe basements in Saanich would no longer be the working solution.

We've owned our house in S. Jubilee for close to 10 years. I've been to two neighbourhood association meetings and at both I've wanted to tear heads off. I don't go anymore. I had the gall to suggest that I was supportive of the Village Walk building and the then-president turned to me and said 'no, the public didn't like that project'. I'm a planner by profession and I get plenty of that in my day job; I don't care to get more of it in my free time. Now I just make sure to write in support of densification projects when I can, as I did with the Fort St. project. It's the ideal neighbourhood for infill. Parking is entirely self-limiting and the only time any conflict occurs is when people feel entitled to the subsidized public space for their private use. The people who scream about one tree being removed are the same ones who fight tooth and nail for what ends up being sprawl-contributing low density. It's maddening.

Yeah, it's frustrating.

Agreed. Those designs you presented look so much better as well.

It appears that the new condo building proposed for 1114 Rockland (pictures posted previously in this thread) will be an 'attainable ownership' development:  https://www.crd.bc.c...vrsn=d35d8ccc_6

From the Housing Agreement Covenant it appears that this means that 2 units are to be priced at 90% of the fair market value of the affordable unit. There's a bunch of affordable boilerplate definitions in the covenant, but that doesn't seem to mean anything. 

Not exactly earth-shattering.

The smaller of the two buildings at the Embassy Inn Hotel on Menzies Street has been demolished, along with its pool. It will be turned into a garden for now, with the potential for redevelopment later.

I guess it's presumed the tourists are never coming back to Victoria.  :(
