Regents Towers are in decent shape last I heard. They were built with a slightly different and technology (one resident told me it was a near miracle) so that the remediation they had a decade or so ago was relatively minor.

Flipping through the plans, it appears that on the level 7 roof there private patios assigned to certain units. Has this been done on other buildings? Hopefully they will be well utilised, otherwise it may have been better to have them a shared amenity with reservation system.

 

Also worth noting that Hapa Collaborative is the Landscape Architect, the same firm doing Peter Pollen Park.

Harris Green Village rezoning application signals boost of confidence for Victoria's post-COVID strategy

https://victoria.cit...covid-strategy/

 

 

Mark Chemij, Starlight’s Director of Development, says the company's decision to submit an application and move forward with the project is based on the historic resiliency of the B.C. Capital, and the post-2020 fundamentals he and his team believe are in place to aid in the south Island's economic recovery. 

 
“The strength of Victoria from a socio-economic perspective, and the region’s many qualities that continue to elevate it among Canadian cities, has underpinned our confidence that this is a great community in which to focus our efforts,” Chemij said. 
 
“We’re certainly not the only community builder to feel this way, and when you take into account the multitude of factors at-play in Victoria, the long term future for this city appears to be on a positive path.”

Do we imagine the project will proceed without much alteration from the current renderings or is it likely significant changes will still be made?

Ideally, I'd like to see a bit more variation in the podium at least along the Yates Street side. It's not bad, but I think it could use some tweaking to break up some of the strong horizontal feel.

Do we know if there is a plan to preserve the large trees (horse chestnuts I think) along Cook Street?

Regarding the trees, that's a tough one as typically these trees must come down for line of sight by the crane operators/crews.

Yeah I suspect the trees will have to go.

Landscape Plan indicates that the 4 existing trees in the Cook Street boulevard are to be retained and protected. 4 trees in each of the Yates and View frontages are to be removed and replaced as part of the boulevard and sidewalk construction works.
