...the next 24 story would be more acceptable to Pam's of the world.

4-storeys is barely acceptable to the Pams (please tell me there isn't more than one) of this world.

You know, in the end they're just numbers. Time has proven that a few stories up or down don't really matter. Orchard House is a few stories too tall, Corazon is a few stories too short. What difference does it really make? Victoria goes on.

...Orchard House is a few stories too tall...

Is it? Or is Orchard House just an ugly design regardless of how tall it is?

As cool as that would be, that would be MUCH taller than what has been approved for this site.

There have been a number of heights thrown around ever since news got out that Townline was seeking amendments to their originally approved plans.

My hunch is they will go taller, but just how tall nobody knows. I wouldn't surprised if they went up to 28-storeys, though.

Obviously, I'd love to see the tallest building on Vancouver Island get built pretty much in my hood, however, I'd be OK with the approved height as long as Townline comes up with an outstanding (not cookie-cutter) design. I also don't want the construction to get held up waiting for a new set of approvals from city hall.

Would more floors = a short ground floor and/or a short/undistinguished penthouse level? I hope not.

Are you familiar with the uproar that can be caused by just ONE "extra" floor - cough - Cook Street Village - cough.  :blink:

I've heard through the grapevine that excavation will be starting this spring ahead of any final approvals for the variances Townline is seeking.

Which makes sense, to get on with the logistics regardless of whether or not they choose to go higher or alter aspects of the design.

Once the space is no longer being used for staging of Hudson Walk it seems logical to keep crews working while final (hopefully taller) plans are finalized.

Now it is advertised as being 24 floors ... googled Hudson Place Victoria BC.

Is that not what the current zoning allows? Anything taller would require zoning changes - correct?

1700 Blanshard, right? Zoning allows 72 m height, which would be tight for 24 storeys, but doable.

A partially excavated site along the 700-block of Herald Street could be the future home of Vancouver Island's tallest building. A proposal to build a condominium tower rising as high as 30-floors has surfaced for downtown Victoria's Hudson District.

 

Vancouver Island's tallest building to rise above downtown Victoria

http://victoria.citi...ntown-victoria/

 

The tallest building on Vancouver Island could start to rise above the streets of downtown Victoria this fall, according to preliminary plans recently unveiled by development firm Townline.

The Vancouver-based builder of downtown Victoria’s mixed-use residential and commercial Hudson District – bordered by Caledonia Avenue and Douglas, Fisgard and Blanshard streets – is preparing to make an application to the City of Victoria to amend the height and massing of the District’s two-tower Hudson Place development. Until recently the former Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) department store’s parkade had occupied the site.

“We’re currently exploring the idea with the City to raise the permitted height of our 24-storey Hudson Place 1 condominium residence, possibly up to 30-floors,” says Justin Filuk, Townline’s director of development in Victoria, adding that a taller building will “afford [Townline] the opportunity to utilize the site’s allotted density through a slimmer and more refined design.” [Full article]

Any chance the city will actually allow 30-floors?

Victorians should be expecting/demanding a slimmer and more refined design even at 24 floors.

But taller will make the approved density possible.
