Updated building code allows for this. It's becoming more and more common.

Is it just an optical illusion in these photos or is that wooden framing below grade?

It is a little bit below grade. It's a steep hill. So this week Saanich gained another 6 storey tower. Time to update the Skyscraper Page "Saanich's Tallest" chart.

So those first-floor windows will look out onto the back of a concrete retaining wall?

The area below the top level of the retaining wall looks better now that the second floor is being added on.

I saw a unit similar at the Cherrybank downtown. Unit was built into a slope and was north-facing looking out below grade.
Nope, not for me.

Those units are farther down than they appear in Marko's photo. I hope the people who bought those suites knew what they were getting.

Construction crews were back at work on a Saanich condo project Monday after the shocking death of a co-worker.

 

“I’m devastated and it’s so surreal,” says an emotional Corinne Desjarlais, who was the victim’s girlfriend. “I actually phoned his cell phone yesterday just to hear his voice.”

 

Fifty-one-year-old Roland Huetzelman was a veteran construction worker.

 

On January 10th, he was working on the third story of the Shire Urban Living development off Quadra Street when tragedy struck.

 

“A gust of wind come up and a piece of plywood came up and it literally tossed him over the edge and the railing and he landed on his back on the concrete,” Desjarlais told CHEK News.

Crazy.

These three buildings are all topped off, roofs are on, windows are in and siding is either on or going on now.

Jonny, can you get a good shot from the other direction, from your building? It's hard to tell from the street but the large entrances to all three buildings face each other on a central courtyard. It's one of the more striking new complexes in recent memory.

I certainly will. Our unit and balcony face onto that courtyard. I'll grab some shots tomorrow.
