Yup. It was to have been redeveloped but that idea has fizzled after a disagreement.

And this is why I don't expect to see dramatic changes in downtown Esquimalt anytime soon.

The town centre development is moving right along, and the same developer is also moving full speed ahead at the English Inn (or whatever it's called) on Lampson.

Tenfold/Amadon are also moving forward with the triangle lot along the shores of West Bay Marina. Good times.

English inn has construction fences and excavator on site last time I drove by. Town centre is already excavated. It is too bad the legion deal feel through though as that would have had a big impact. Hopefully they can get something else together for the property.

I had a chance to speak with the developer of the project, and he never mentioned any issues with the auto parts store.

The title of this thread could use an update.  :)

Well from the Legion side of the story it did have something to do with it. All I know is the Legion is attempting to sue the developer... and know this from several members at the Legion.

Hmm, interesting. I know there's some bad blood there, but I don't know what a lawsuit would accomplish, exactly.

 

Maybe the Legion guys should just focus on finding a new partner.

I think they are trying to get the money back that they have put into this. I have been told the Legion feels there is a overall breach of the development contract.

500 sounds very big. i bet that would be twice the size of irish times.

 

Esquimalt council has given its blessing for the return of a public house to the site of the Tudor House Pub on Esquimalt Road at Admirals Road.

 

Operators have proposed a 500-seat Irish-styled pub that will be situated adjacent to the Tudor House Liquor Store on a vacant site fronting Admirals Road. The pub will feature family areas in addition to what is being referred to as an "authentic" Irish pub experience.

There is also an apartment component planned at some point. Recall that they have approvals for a couple of mini highrises.

I need to see the render(s).  I'm dying to know what's going to blend in with the liquor store and it's massive glass plywood panels.

Yes... had a friend that had top floor in the condo across the street. Was well above the tree line. Well enough that I think three floors would be also.

Nice! 500 warm bodies would put this roughly in the same league if not even larger capacity-wise than the old Ingraham Hotel pub back in its heyday, if my fuzzy memory of the late-70's is in any way accurate. Of course with a major naval base literally two blocks away I suspect there will be no lack of patrons.

Big Irish pub with a family section sounds a lot like Kelly O's and Carlos O'Bryan's. Wonder if that'll be the case

The old pub had seating for 243, but it would often attract more patrons on a busy night.

 

So a doubling of capacity in 2021 to what was around for decades prior sounds about right.
