They are simply confused. I always wanted to buy Fields and turn it into a house by itself. Interesting to see what they build there.

It has a whole new look!

Methinks many people can't imagine that the Adelphi and all of that other glorious stuff was knocked down (because, you know, Victoria is/was all about preserving heritage).

Plans are underway to redevelop 1125 Fort Street.  Details:

  • The existing house would be moved forward within the property and would receive a heritage designation
  • Concurrently, the house would be divided into two strata units (one for the basement and a 2-storey unit for the rest of the property)
  • 3 additional strata units would be built at the rear, bringing the total number of units to five
  • The development will include an elevator, a rooftop garden (on top of the new structure), and four parking stalls accessed from Meares St.

In Victoria a tiny 1920s building like this one in Windsor would be knocked down without a second thought. You'd get laughed at for suggesting it was worth spending any money to save it, let alone close to $6 million*. But in Ontario it's heritage.

 

Pic of how it looked before renovation...

 

Just imagine what could have been done with the Fairfield church (restoration/renovation of the old building + new construction next door to make it feasible).

 

Windsor, Ontario Sandwich Fire Hall/Public Library project...

 

*SSP forumer says only $2.5 million, but news articles quote a higher number and say it went $3 million over budget.

I'd take the appointment on the condition they let me decide the fate of the Northern Junk site.

Spencer Castle (on Cook south of Finlayson) caught fire today. Quite a lot of damage but the structure was saved, according to VicFD.

Revised plans and a DP application came in last week. Plans available on the Dev Tracker: https://tender.victo...Number=REZ00712

 

Slight revision to the tenure, as it now includes 4 strata units and a rental suite in the main dwelling (previously the basement was to be a strata unit).

One rental unit. The addition has three strata units, and the existing home will remain a single strata unit. The basement (which was previously proposed as a strata unit) will be secured as rental in a housing agreement with the City. Letter from the developer is in the Dev Tracker folder, and here for convenience: https://tender.victo...828111354465659

Fantastic opportunity to acquire a historic turn-of-the-century building with revitalized modern interiors. The property is ideally located in Old Town at the corner of Yates and Wharf Street.
