Open house for proposed tallest mass timber building on Vancouver Island
Colwood residents can have their say on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Greater Victoria Housing Society has applied for redevelopment to essentially double the size of the Colwood Lodge to 100 affordable housing rental units, with 15 storeys replacing its current four.
The development site will also include a 180-stall outdoor bicycle pavilion and a surface parking lot for the tenants. Plans for a second building of similar size would also be possible in the future.
who are the tenants here? is that a lot of bikes for 100 units?
Colwood Lodge is a seniors apartment building with rents preset at the door. Tenants are required to fall within a particular income bracket in order to qualify. Built in 1983 it is a wood frame building with 50 units on 4 floors.
