The concrete has begun to pour at the new development. Crews have been working on the old foundation for some time now.

Is this rising from the remnants of that failed project? And as the concrete underground parkade (turned pool) compromised or could it be reused?

🔹Rain damages roof at Colwood Corners🔹

From the City of Colwood:

In the early hours of this morning as heavy rain continued to fall, Colwood Fire responded to the structural collapse of a portion of the flat roof on the building adjacent to London Drugs at 1905 Sooke Road.

The building was constructed in the early 70's.

There were no injuries as the building was vacant and the affected units are not currently leased.

Colwood building inspectors were on site this morning to assess the situation.

Supporting businesses:
London Drugs remains open, having recently had its roof replaced by the building owner, Onni Group.

Two other businesses in the building, First Choice Hair Cutters and Kathy's Mutt Cuts, are closed until that portion of the building is deemed safe.

It is extremely unfortunate that this event has impacted the two businesses and their patrons, but public safety must be the primary concern.

City staff were on site with the business owners this morning to provide information about working with their insurers and the property owner to track and recover any potential loss of revenue. The business owners were encouraged to contact the City if they have any questions or concerns.

Plans for the building going forward:
The building is part of the Colwood Corners property that is currently being redeveloped by Onni Group. Their plans included upgrades to this building as part of the new development. It is not known at this time how the incident will affect those plans. They will need to make that determination and then work with the City to adjust their plans going forward.

Built to 1970's standards, this building has been subjected to 50 years of wear and tear. Colwood is one of the few municipalities that employs several Level 3 Building Inspectors to assist property owners and builders. Public safety is the City's primary concern with respect to new construction.

An important reminder to property owners:
The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of regular roof maintenance, particularly during the kind of heavy rain and potential snow events we are currently experiencing.

The project looks stuck when you drive by on the Island Highway. I would have expected windows to appear months ago but now that the wood framing is done it's like the work crews have disappeared but I do see the crane swinging around so something is happening. This is hands down the slowest project on the West Shore when you compare how fast everything else is built over there.

Depends on the project. I've seen ones like this where they have a skeleton crew and take forever.

The work crews are working on the exterior of the building closer to the back of the property, probably around 75% completed.  Once that one is completed I assume they will start working of the apartment block on the Sooke Rd portion of the property which you are speaking about.  This is a fairly large project with what seems to be a minimal work force.

That seems to have been the history of this site for years now.

An incident occurred here during a concrete pour yesterday. Nobody was killed but there was a form collapse, it sounds like, and a few people went down.

The road work at Goldstream has been dragging on for a heck of a long time. Lots of it appears to be related to this project.

It’ll be great to have this first phase finished so they can tear down the already half imploded building (its roof has caved in).

Nope, but by what I was told, you will never be able to tell it was "old".

Except for when you walk unto the old dumpy London Drugs.
