Doral Forest Park is a four building (6-, 4-, 4-, and 4-storeys), 161 unit condo project (56, 38, 35 and 32 units, respectively) proposed at 4734-4754 Elk Lake Drive. This is the location.

 

The architect was Herbert Kwan but now appears to be KPL James.

If anyone is interested, architectural drawings were submitted last year. They're online, here: https://www.saanich....jul1118elev.pdf

KPL James no longer has this project, unknown who the new architect is.

Oh that's too bad, Jasmine. I liked the design that had been submitted last year.

The project has gone from four buildings to two, one of which is envisioned at 11-storeys tall. The five-storey building will be comprised of affordable ownership homes.
 
D'Ambrosio is now at the helm.

Has a bit of a 70s vibe, but I like the massing and the brick cladding. What are the chances an 11-storey building will get approved for this location?

Indeed, an 80s vibe I'd call it.

Late 70s/early 80s. Reminds me of some of the buildings from that era at UVic.

That's exactly it. I did a double take and rechecked the thread title to see if it said UVic lol. 

This current Saanich council, I'm not sure what their dev approvement record is. This is my neck of the woods, and I personally don't see an issue, but there are a lot of vocal folks in the area that might.

 

11 storeys. I wonder what kind of view of the lake to the north and Victoria/ocean/Olympics to the south that gives.

Mike, I'm a bit confused. Your pictures posted shows 6 or 8 buildings (not sure if some are connected). Your profile says its 2 builds of 5/11 storeys.

I think one interconnected building runs along the forested side of the property (rising as high as 11 storeys) and a separate 5 storey building fronts Elk Lake Drive.

Yes, that’s corrected. The 11-storey building spans east-west, the five-storey building north-south.
