I don't think there's a thread for this anywhere, but the revised drawings for 520 Normandy Road at the corner of Elk Lake Drive were submitted last week. D'Arcy Jones Architects for Aryze Developments. Any chance we can get a sketch or rendering? The elevations do the project a major disservice...

Development consists of 8 townhouses and a 6-storey apartment building. Looks like wetland restoration is included on the north end of the site at Normandy Creek.

Another homage to the 70s/80s. Is this the new Elk Lake Drive style?

Oh that is so much better than the black and white elevation! Thanks!

This one reminds me of the homes in Broadmead, so possibly picking up on that local architectural reference. The MGC project less so, but it is of the same era.

Also in the works on Elk Lake Drive: Saanich has tapped HCMA to design the replacement fire hall. It's of the typical contemporary style seen in other recent fire hall rebuilds.

Now that's a rendering I'd love to see. All we've been presented with are low res variants, or scans of printed documents.
