I think just about every one of those lots have had a proposal, either a real shovel-ready project ready for development permit or an architect's dream sketch. Some sites have had multiple plans.

I guess the question now is "are conditions favourable for actual development?"

I'd love to see them all developed into housing, bring another thousand residents downtown and fill in ugly gaps. The car lots are prime, perfectly positioned for larger-scale projects.

I want to see 1,000 per year, not just 1,000!

I apologize for taking this thread off topic. Perhaps a new thread is required. Mods?

Where am I going to park if you knock off all those lots?

Dude, car storage goes underground. Just bring a shovel with you and be prepared to dig a big hole.

And nagel can park his bike pretty much anywhere.

Every day I learn something new about my fellow forumers.

 

Anyway, bike storage goes up into the trees. Just bring a rope and a hook with you.

Word is at least one of the towers will be 17-storeys tall.

It'd be great to push at least one Harris Green condo to 20+. One day officialdom might regret the flat skyline they're furiously working towards.

In a perfect Victoria, this building would be at least 25 stories and 70 meters tall.

And would get approved by a city council that didn't include any SJWs.

Well, a few buildings seem to be '70 metres wide'- Jack Davis, anyone?

I'm looking forward to the details... :)

...Although details on Chard’s upcoming Yates Street towers remain light, the developer has confirmed its intentions to build two residential towers above a ground floor commercial component. The sizing and make-up of individual suites and building heights have yet to be confirmed, however.


“We’re several weeks away from revealing our latest project, but I can confirm that it will be our largest undertaking to-date in downtown Victoria.

Mods:  we can modify the thread information slightly as we now know that the two towers are proposed to be 21 storeys.

 

The Advisory Design Panel reviewed the proposal for 848 Yates on December 21 and recommended that it proceed to council as a development permit application (with variances).

 

Minutes from the meeting (which include the 21-storey height) are posted online at:

Any idea of when it will be reviewed by counsel .. this would be a very exciting development if the 21 story was permitted.

Nice find!

 

Since Chard is requesting a Development Permit, that means no rezoning is required, right?

 

For reference, this property has a land use designation of Core Business in the city's OCP.

Here's the Core Residential description, as well.

I think this will go first to the Committee of the Whole and then it will go to council as a 'combined' (zoning variance request + development permit) agenda item.  Members of the public would be given the opportunity to provide input; council would then vote on the zoning variances followed by the development permit (assuming variances are granted).

This is cool: "Although plans may be altered and final municipal approvals have yet to be granted, the design concept for the towers, at 848-852 Yates Street and 849 Johnson Street, has been described as “stacked boxes” by the City of Victoria’s Advisory Design Panel (ADP). The Panel also remarked that it is “exciting” to see such an architectural style proposed for the downtown core and has recommended that the project proceed to council as a development permit application with variances."

I'd wager the design will be something similar to Chard's Ellsworth project: http://charddevelopm...ject/ellsworth/

That would be nice to see. Another "Yello" on this block would be too much.
