I suppose they could put it on one of the many other giant, fortress-like, blank walls that face out to the surrounding public realm.

I guess we can also believe that none of the 500 or so tenants will have cars. 

 

You would think that someone would have said that given the plan is to add a dozen 24 story building in the area, maybe we should not be narrowing Douglas St!

There will be plenty of parking down below, I’m sure.

This would be a great place to live, on the South or East side of the building, and on a high floor.
That entire area between Uptown and what was the school on Carey is on the crest of quite a large hill, and has spectacular views to the Olympics and the Sooke Hills. 
Very quick access to the Westshore, the airport, or downtown Victoria as well.

Yup. It’s ideal. That whole stretch between Bay and Saanich is going to be spectacular if Saanich planners and Victoria planners can just loosen up a bit.

I guess now that the Northern Junk hand wringing is out of the way we can move on to endless iterations of this property!

From the wide side it looks a lot like a 21st-century version of Orchard House. Everything goes full circle. 50 years ago it was Orchard House at the south end of Douglas Street that really heated up the highrise controversy in Victoria. And now Saanich will finally be getting its own Orchard House at the north end of Douglas Street.
