Yes, that's what they had done.

 

Some residents are now moving into Hudson Walk One.

The  Hudson parking entrance on Herald has been closed as crews prepare the site for construction. Excavators and such are still some ways away, but we're not seeing the first signs of physical progress.

I assume you mean we're "now" seeing the first signs of physical progress? This can't happen soon enough for my liking.  :banana:

and so what is this site going to be?   and will this site include the current cement parking lot (above ground / old blanshard entrance) area as well?

That will be coming down this fall and winter to make way for two towers and a large podium between them.

I think this explains things better than I can

...changes to the final phase of the project...will appear before City Hall this fall as the company moves to secure development permits...What those changes are, exactly, will be revealed soon, although Citified has learned the remaining portion of the project will be built in a single phase rather than two and will be comprised of a mix of both market condo residences and rental apartments. The exact ratio of housing types and the volume of units is yet to be decided. In-keeping with the project's overall theme, ground floor commercial usage, perhaps even a multi-storey commercial component, can be expected within the podium of both towers — provided a two tower development is, in fact, still the plan....demolition of the remaining portion of the former Hudson's Bay Department Store parkade along Blanshard Street at Herald Street will begin this fall in order to make way for construction...

As per the above Citified reference Mike, are 2 towers now confirmed?

Who's the architect on this now? It's passed through a lot of hands.

Is this still going to go for the title of Victoria's tallest building?

Nparker, I believe so, and yes, it's approved at 24-storeys.

Rob, I'm not sure who the architect is. It'd be great have a Victoria architect behind the City's tallest building.

Per yesterday's T-C the parkade will be demolished this week and exact plans for future development will be revealed in 2017.

So maybe the original 24 floors plan may be scaled back or perhaps 27 floors and take back the record from Nanaimo ...

Constructing a building that's shorter than current zoning allows would be shocking and a huge mistake.

For Victoria, alas, it WOULDN'T be shocking, but it would be a huge mistake.

The developer already has zoning for 24 floors in place at this point, as far as I remember anyway. It would be shocking to me for Townline to leave floor space and revenue on the table. This really is a unique opportunity to construct a landmark building.

Not saying it couldn't happen, but, it would be weird. I'm sure others would almost literally kill for that kind of zoning.

Personally, I'm really looking forward to a 20+ floor building downtown. Hopefully this will be a trailblazer like the Juliet that we can point to as an awesome example of the types of buildings that seriously benefit downtown.
