I'd like to see the current CoV council reaction for this award.  Shock, disbelief, rage and ranting I presume.

Once the dust has settled the stinkers always reserve the right to accept and enjoy the good stuff as if it had always been there, and pretend that it was all part of their master plan, etc. It's the next thing that's the problem. It's the next thing that will surely ruin everything.

If people seem to accept the 1950s extension to the back of the Carnegie Library then the Janion should be a home run.

^Hey, that was a wholesome and sensitive addition to an old building. It must have been, right? Considering the parties involved? It's not as if it was a residential addition/conversion, just dripping with dark evil.

Somewhere in these threads there's a quote to the effect that the CoV drove residential development in south downtown and it was all part of the vision. Yeah, no. But no sane person will look at how things turned out and remind us that they were staunchly opposed every inch of the way because residential development in south downtown was surely going to ruin Victoria.

Selling a unit with the under-counter refrigerator/freezer drawers. Freezer is completely stuck shut. Any idea as to who might service these? Also, model number?

Northern Junk, Capital Iron lands and Victoria real-estate development Q&A with Jon Stovell of Reliance Properties

 
"We have ten major properties in the City of Victoria that over time can add up to over two million square feet of development potential, so we are in Victoria for the long term and highly committed."
 
"I think the City and the community as a whole is struggling a little bit with its identity as it sits on the cusp of changing from a large college and government town, or perhaps a ‘Museum City,’ to a globally relevant urban area at the gateway to the Pacific Rim. Think of Vancouver and Victoria as New York and Boston."
 
"...our newly-acquired Capital Iron lands are planned to move forward as a major project for the north side of the downtown at over seven-acres on which 15-to-16 buildings will rise with uses that include marine-related and light industrial spaces, offices, cultural enterprises and residences."

Know it all.

With the fight the city has put up in the northern junk building, I wonder if it’s 20 years before we see any movement at capital iron....

I can't imagine it'll have the same kind of fight. My understanding is that Capital Iron will remain as is. It's also in a part of town that I think most people would agree is ripe for redevelopment, rather than in the heart of Old Town which lends itself to being more controversial. Not that I think there won't be some detractors, but I don't think it'll be on the same scale unless there are tall towers proposed, which I don't see happening (can't see them trying anything taller than 8 storeys here).
