The developer behind the re-imagining of what was the Times Colonist building says the city’s approval of variances allowing a brewery, distillery, pub and commissary kitchen will inject new life into the site.
David Fullbrook, chief executive of Merchant House Capital, said it has now formalized a series of uses for the project that will generate some excitement about the $26.6-million Victoria Press Building project.
“We always imagined this would have some food and some excitement,” said Fullbrook, after Thursday evening’s public hearing which gave him the green light.
Fullbrook said with the zoning now settled, making a deal to bring in a brewer, distiller and publican will be much easier.
