A 97-stall park-and-ride site in Colwood could be home to the region’s next arts centre, if the Juan de Fuca Performing Arts Centre Society has its way.

 
The Colwood-based charitable organization jumped through the first of several hoops Monday. It convinced Colwood’s Economic Prosperity Committee to recommend council have staff work with the society to set terms for a long-term lease of the site on the Old Island Highway.
 
The 1.82-acre triangular parcel of land bordered by Ocean Boulevard, the Island Highway and the Galloping Goose Trail, is being reimagined by the society as home to a 350-seat performing arts theatre, hotel, office space, residences, parking and a restored wetland.

Interesting idea, but I'd be surprised if it actually gets built.

This looks so much like a rejected Apex design

No information of note on their website as to exactly how they're going to make this all happen with $1900.00 in their bank account.

It's probably $1700.00 now, as that watercolour in the T/C probably cost them a couple of hundred bucks.

Looks like they're really after a nice freebee land deal from the municipality in order to somehow fund their dream (which was originally the "theatre" in the casino - until it wasn't).

I thought this land was intended for a health centre?

That park and ride is fairly well used (pre Covid).  Where would it go?
