Just look at all that traffic in the photos. ^

Oh yeah, it was crazy. There were even cars traveling in the oncoming lane (as I was photographing the building) narraowly missing other vehicles just to get to the turning lane. Traffic was heavily backed up in both directions from the Goldstream intersection along Peatt.

This is what it's like every weekend in Langford. So much visiting traffic just jams up Millstream/Veterans Memorial, Goldstream, Peatt Road...

This was on Tuesday, mid-day. I did not expect to be caught up in as much traffic as I was on the west shore that day.

Bleah. I work downtown M-F so I don't notice it during the weekdays... wow.

Is this project six or seven floors (or six with a loft?) A new level has been built and it appears from the street as though it's another floor, but it may not be. Regardless, this must be the tallest woodframe, at least residential, in the CRD?

So it turns out this project is actually seven storeys. This makes it the tallest woodframe residential building in the CRD, no?

I thought the current code only allowed for 6 storeys of wood frame. Is the lowest floor of this project all reinforced concrete with 6 floors of wood frame above?

I just edited my post, but you may be right, six is the current limit. For some reason I thought eight was but I don't think that's right.

 

There are a few all-wood buildings going up around the province that are pushing new heights though, like an 18-storey residential tower at UBC.

18-storeys? Is it some sort of engineering test project?

That is totally cool: http://www.vancitybu...ooden-building/

 

Tallest wood building in the world is currently just 10 stories!

 

No idea how they get around the current 6 storey limit in the BC building code.

Here's a view of the lofted ceiling on the six floor units. It almost looks as though there is a public roof element, or at least top floor units units have individual roof access.
