Methinks it would make for a powerful political statement if this building were left unoccupied with all the lights on so it can serve as an enduring symbol of the housing crisis.

 

We already have that.

 

Five good sized units - only one presently tenanted

Has anyone moved into HP-2 aka Hudson House yet?

How are the windows when you are inside?

Hopefully, transparent.

Not if one is blind or perhaps a mole.

I was wrong about the top floor penthouse being an amenity space, so yes, the entire floor is an amenity space for the project.

 

I had the opportunity to tour it today. Victoria has never seen something of this calibre, I don't think. It was stunning, and it's open for all residents of the building.


Know it all.

The renderings looked quite good, so pleased to hear it turned out great. Hopefully lots of residents utilize the space.

It's a shame some of that stunning design wasn't applied to the exterior of Hudson House. More people will see the outside than will likely ever utilize the amenity space.

The further one gets from Hudson House, the better it looks.

Something built beside Hudson House to block it would be appreciated.

Hudson House looks okay from Whistler.

Methinks a couple of those potential redevelopment sites on Blanshard are interesting for how they seem to terminate the streets running east from the harbour. You don't have a lot of those situations in downtown Victoria. Christ Church Cathedral would probably be the outstanding example.

More towers, as well as medium density through neighbouring cities would be great. Like 2-3 stories all over Saanich, maybe even Central Saanich! Nice neighbourhoods all over!
