If Capital Iron left downtown, the closest hardware store I can think of is Castle.

Depending on where exactly you live in town, there's also Lowes at Tillicum, with its huge inventory.

 

Lowes and Castle both sell wood, drywall, and builders supplies, whereas Capital Iron is a Department Store.

The downtown Capital Irons now tiny hardware and tools section is just a shadow of what it was a decade ago.

capital iron was always good for the ability to buy one or three bolts.  or a cotter pin or an o-ring or a washer.  you don't have to buy a blister pack of 150.

Mods:  this project is now known as Capital Culture District.

It looks like they intend to situate a new Art Gallery of Greater Victoria within this project. I wonder if the new library will be moving there, too.

Revised plans were submitted on Dev Tracker last week.  Also, the conservation plan for the heritage buildings was approved by the Heritage Advisory Committee in late May.

 

Here's a new rendering:

Current proposed tower heights are :  10, 13, and 17 storeys with podiums of 3, 4, and 5 storeys respectively.

Le Fevre’s potential build-out, I wound imagine.
