Downtown is quickly becoming a trash zone. I cannot imagine wanting a condo downtown at this point between all the druggies and Covid. Forget the penthouse, 10 million gets you a beautiful waterfront home in Oak Bay.

That last photo is an angle we likely don't see too often. It may be the best view of the building once it's all done. I'm looking forward to seeing what they are doing to the exterior of the heritage building.


Don't be so sure.:cool:

A “work place accident” that occurred in the 800-block of Government Street has closed several intersections in the area to traffic. This building is in that block. No further details have been released and it’s possible this is an accident at an alternate location on that block. More details to come.

TC now reporting it as a death. Sounds like the worker either fell from scaffolding or the scaffolding itself failed.

Stan Sipos, CEO of construction company Cielo Properties, tells CTV News the crane was lifting form work to cast a stairwell in the building when the load dropped.


Oops. Sipos is the developer, not the contractor. The contractor is Banyan and I believe this is their first major project in the core. They are also working on a smaller project in Sidney.
