They're at grade in the eastern section of the site, and the western section is progressing well too.

Last update was from September.. this one is crawling along.  Still only one above ground level complete for only half the site.  My pics below:

Thought this was funny from the TC:

 

 

The debacle of the boarded-up Crystal Court Motel property sitting as an unused eyesore in the centre of Victoria for almost 10 years was perhaps the worst example of such irresponsible property ownership.

 

Remind me, who was the main force responsible for the delays redeveloping that property?

Those greedy developers / foreign owners / speculators / property owners / corporations / capitalists / Trump.

Clearly it's the fault of the developers who only offered 18 different versions when it was obvious that if they had produced 19 it would have immediately sailed though.

The CoV was holding out for the blandest proposal for this site and their strategy worked.

from https://www.timescol...blem-1.23601724

 

Meanwhile, Quadra-Pacific wanted to build apartments on their surface parking lots in James Bay and were turned down multiple times. Eyesore parking lots in the centre of Victoria. Remind me, who was the irresponsible party in that instance?

 

Summary: the housing crisis is so severe and the land shortage is so desperate that extreme measures are justified to take advant-- er, I mean, to address it... BUT the situation is not nearly so severe or desperate to justify building on surface parking lots. Not even close. I mean, come on. That would be absolutely crazy, right? Building on surface parking lots should always be the very last option. Parking lots are awesome.

 

Seriously, nobody finds it even a wee bit odd that supposedly hardcore anti-car types have such a massive blind spot in this regard?

I walked by today and went to take a picture of the progress but my phone died immediately when I held up my phone. The eastern half is now three stories tall, and the western half is at ground level.

Even your phone doesn't want to see what a dull project ended up on this site.

that’s a new cloaking technology some buildings have employed to keep them off vv.

expect it to become more popular as it becomes cheaper.

Tapestry on June 2. If the ground floor is decent this will be a great addition, the street wall will encourage pedestrians to wander down to St Ann’s and beyond vs. the previous dead end vibe.

Excellent point.
