Plans for Selkirk Waterfront's last undeveloped property have morphed from a residential building with groundfloor retail into a mixed-use office, residential and commercial building.

Also, Fortis (Terasen) is vacating its space after 20 years at Selkirk and plans are underway to re-locate the operation to the west shore. Fortis was one of the initial tenants at Selkirk and gave the project its first major line of support.

Of course with Fortis moving out, this positions the surface parking/maintenance yard at Selkirk for some form of redevelopment.

Mixed-use office and residential project last piece of the puzzle at Selkirk Waterfront

Jawl Properties has applied to the City of Victoria with a zoning variance request for the last remaining undeveloped parcel at the Selkirk Waterfront Community along the Gorge waterway.

Company representative Robert Jawl says the initial plans for 2950 Jutland Road envisioned a six-storey residential building with commercial space along the groundfloor. However, strong demand for office space at Selkirk has recently lead to a re-think of the project to include a mix of offices, residences and commercial space.

“Several office tenants at Selkirk are bursting at the seams and would like to remain within the community. Our plans are for a 65,000 square foot mixed-use building that could start construction by early 2013,” Jawl said. [Read more]

A couple of Corazon-style buildings would be great back there.

Ah, there goes my water view.... It was great while it lasted. I guess it will probably be a year or more before the building is up. So I assume that the new building will go up in the current location of the parking lot in front of the docks?

That's correct, but construction will likely start next year and completion will follow sometime in 2014.

6-storey Boardwalk project to complete Selkirk Waterfront
By Mike Kozakowski
6-storey Boardwalk project to complete Selkirk Waterfront | VibrantVictoria.ca

Site preparation and excavation has begun on The Boardwalk, a six storey mixed-use office, commercial and condo project at Burnside-Gorge’s Selkirk Waterfront Community.

After 20 years of construction on industrial land once occupied by a lumber processing facility, Boardwalk will rise above Selkirk Waterfront’s last un-developed parcel and complete one of the most successful mixed-use urban redevelopment projects in Victoria.

Originally planned as a condo building with groundfloor retail, developer Jawl Properties decided to re-envision the site (officially located at 2950 Jutland Road) and accommodate several of Selkirk Waterfront’s existing office tenants “bursting at the seems,” as company representative Robert Jawl stated earlier in the year.

Damn it, that's what I though when it was posted on my page (with the Selkirk label), then I rethought it and went along.

But you are right:

The eight residential units will be on the first two floors at the back of the building overlooking the water.
