A proposed 48-unit condo building on the former Pic-A-Flic Video site in the Cook Street Village is headed to a public hearing.

 

Aragon Properties plans to demolish the commercial building, two houses and a duplex at Cook and Pendergast Streets to build a four-storey condominium with businesses on the first floor.

Almost 3 years since this proposal was first announced and progress is practically nil. Just one more reason to be ashamed of our local government.

certain council members are asking for way too much. Developers will go where they can reduce costs

A basic, 4-storey residential building in a part of the city designated for exactly this sort of development and 3 years into this proposal, the CoV Council still hasn't been able to make a decision? Has there ever been less competent governance than currently exists in Victoria?

Good on Aragon for not caving into certain city councilors that are trying to extort an unfair position. City council ( you know who you are ) needs to provide better flexibility to builders when they ask for under market value suites.  Use credits towards the construction of alternative buildings/suites where land costs are lower and builders can supply affordable units.

 

City council is not helping to increase housing with all these delays.  The end purchasers always pays.

Nor making housing more affordable, but council's demands make their voting base happy.

Taking years to approve a trivial residential building is precisely what those who voted in this council want. No private party shall supply housing without running through a gauntlet.
