I don't have an issue with 5% affordable housing which I believe this site is doing, and this is actually becoming a standard %.  My understanding is it would be unusual to increase it beyond this amount.  At some point you have to cut the subsidy/guiding hand off because if you increase it to 20% the cost of the other 80% is just going to go up even more, so did we actually help or hinder affordability?

The developer is selling over 2.3-acres of this project's undeveloped land.

 

The initial phases, a condo and some townhomes, are taking quite a while to sell (condos are 80% sold) with sales having started in 2017, I believe. We sometimes see difficulty arise when a builder/industry firm jumps into the development side of the equation. It's a lot different to build something for someone than to be responsible for selling sell out a residential project.

Construction is set to start on Phase Three of the Marigold Lands. Steve Mann and Tim Hackett consider it their finest development after 50 years of experience, according to a news release.

 

Marigold Lands is a partnership between longtime Vancouver Island developer Hackett, and Mann, owner of Don Mann Excavating Ltd.

 

The project, nestled between the Pat Bay Highway and Lochside Drive, consists of a six-storey condominium building, along with eight two-storey and six three-storey townhouses.

I always wonder what these places are like to live in when I go by. The townhouses look nice to me, and you're very close to ferries and airport. But the highway must be pretty noisy, and there's not a whole lot you can walk to.

There is a tunnel under the highway, so its a fairly easy walk to Royal Oak shopping center. It's also not that far to Broadmead Village, though up a hill.

I’m very impressed with Starlight’s investment in our communities.

Council deferred its decision on the above rental project following last night's public hearing. A large contingent of people came out opposed to the rental project.

Let me guess, it's the right project, just the wrong location.

It's literally next door to 2 existing rental buildings, and beyond that is the reserve, 2 gas stations, a hotel/pub, and a mcdonalds. And right beside the highway too. If there was ever a perfect location for a lot of rentals, this is it.

Windsor said residents in the area of Lochside Drive and Mount Newton Cross Road have to drive into Sidney or further afield to find groceries and other services.

There is a Thrifty Foods and a Pharmase at East Saanich.
