It would be nice if the existing artwork on the building was retained.

This is shaping up to be a great project for downtown Victoria.

The DRA has  published a letter claiming that the meeting with Reliance didn't officially qualify as a CALUC meeting due to issues with the audio/video components of the presentation.  They also note that there is near unanimous opposition to the project in the correspondence received so far.

Attached Notice which also will give the possibility to access the building and engage with interior features to be retained.

Reliance Properties is looking for public input on its plans for a 77-room hotel and 102-unit residential tower on the site of what was once the B.C. Power Commission building on the fringes of downtown Victoria.

The Vancouver-based developer behind the reimagined Janion building on Store Street plans to hold an open house today to gauge public sentiment about preserving the four-storey art deco building at 780 Blanshard St. and adding an 18-storey residential tower on the site.

The building is currently home to several artists, who pay low rent for work space.
