This one came out of nowhere. I know there was an info session on this one recently, but I couldn't make it; so hopefully someone can fill me in on how this got approved. My guess it was pre-zoned.

Recently two homes on the top of Moss Rock were torn down. Currently there's a tonne of blasting.

7 modern view homes are planned. Starting at 1.8 million. Abstract is the developer.
Here's more details on their site.

Here's a Bing of the site.

Those homes inside the line are now gone. I couldn't believe it when I saw that the bigger one was gone. From what I could tell it was in very good shape. The land is now being leveled.



Here is the site plan:



Here are renderings of the first three home to be built:

We do have a thread going somewhere, or it has at least been mentioned.

Boring finishing, BTW. If you are going to go for so much glass, why not build them steel-framed, and really make it cool.



Or something that's kinda wild.

Is there any reason we don't build southwest style, or Mediteranean style around here?

Maybe not for everyone, but I'd love it because it'd be so unique. Apart from the air conditioner, is that serious?

I brought it up on the "Projects with no threads" thread.

Have you forgotten about the award-winning Tuscany Village?

Yes, fair enough. I was the only guy excited about that new Sooke hotel.

Some of the homes are almost complete. Will take pics soon. If someone wants them sooner than later, they'll have to bug me. I might forget.

BTW, they are still blasting periodically.
I can see the project from my back window.

Just took a look at this development. It doesn't appear as though any work has been done for a while. Only three of the seven lots have had anything built on them so far. One of the houses isn't even complete and looks like it has been left unfinished for several months.

Sorry to have to break this to you gumgum............the selling price ended with a $500......in other words the seller and the purchaser could not agree on a round number when the price tag was over $2M.

They must have haggled it......big time.
