It is not currently known whether this project is a rental or a condominium.

 

The current property is an eight-unit townhome complex.

A site plan depicts the footprint of a proposed 90-unit residential complex at 4096 Torquay Drive in Saanich along Gordon Head's portion of the Shelbourne Street corridor. The building is envisioned as rising to five-storeys, and includes a landscaped area around the building perimeter with "naturalistic" fitness zones and a children's play park.

A development proposal that aims to densify the north part of the Shelbourne Valley is heading to a public hearing.

 

The five-storey, 86-unit project for 4096 Torquay Dr. at Shelbourne Street flew through discussions at council at the June 13 meeting, but some had concerns with the length of time rentals would be permitted for the property.

 

An agreed-to covenant that would need registering ahead of approval of the rezoning necessary and the development permit lists a requirement for a housing agreement to secure 22 of the units as market rentals for a period of no less than 15 years after occupancy.

The covenant also requires all 111 of the underground parking spots to have at least Level 2 charging for electric vehicle use, and that the $387,000 ($4,500 per unit) community amenity contribution be directed to the Bowker Creek Restoration Fund, Saanich’s affordable housing fund, and a greenway enhancement fund before a building permit is issued.
