Construction of The Highlander, a 14-storey condominium tower atop Langford's Bear Mountain, stalled in 2009 after the completion of four-storeys of concrete work. The concrete shell has remained at the Hannington Road construction site ever since. Work on a replacement project, known as Elevate, has begun.

Work resumes on stalled condo tower atop Langford's Bear Mountain; 13-storey Elevate condo scheduled for 2022 completion

I am a little confused after looking at the rendering then reading the Citified link: is this to be one or ultimately two mid rise buildings off the shared podium?

Two joined towers, but there is so little info right now that for all we know the design changed. We’ll have to wait and see.

And Langford is one of those places with delegated Development Permits, i.e. approval is by staff not council, so much harder to hunt down drawings

I've heard one tower with 17 storeys in total. If true, it's going to be a major eye sore

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder ... I think it will be a thing of awesomeness ...

Eye sore unless you are blinded by self interest.

I think Highlander would have been fine. Unnecessarily self-conscious but fine. Soaring Peaks would have been goofy.

 Density needed  for bike lanes.  Of course Amsterdam has 4 to 5 stories as norm on almost all streets, but that would steamroll historic sites.

 

That is why Victoria will never have successful bike lanes from a climate change perspective.  They hate density.
