Hello Vibrant Victoria, 


We are pleased to announce our new and updated renderings, as well as our virtual open house for the rental project in West Bay, Esquimalt.


We are currently going through the rezoning process, however our proposed rezoning is within all requirements of the Esquimalt OCP. 


If you would like to see detailed renderings, and our FAQ section, please visit: https://westbayterrace.com/


We would be VERY greatful if you  leave feedback through the form on the Virtual Open House Page, which goes directly to the Planning Department and Council. 


We are hopeful this project will be approved and we can do a small part in helping with the rental housing crisis in Victoria.

MUCH improved from the April 2021 rendering. It also seems to have grown by a floor (6 rather than 5 floors)

Hello, thank you for the comment.  It has grown by 1/2 a floor.  There is 1/2 of the 6th floor now being used as residential units, and there is 1/2 of the 6th floor being used as a rooftop amenity for all of the tenants with ocean views!   Previously, the entire 6th floor was going to be a rooftop amenity.   In addition, we made the building MUCH skinnier, so the site coverage is about 20% less than the first iteration, allowing for more permeable planting and a robust landscaping plan.  In addition, there will be 12, 3 bedroom units, including the entire main floor being 3 bedroom walk up family friendly units.

Is this replacing some heritage homes?

It is a beautiful apartment building - has an Abstract vibe, but a little more straight forward, which gives it an understated sophisticated feel if that makes sense.

No heritage houses, a group of flat roofed single story duplexes. I’m not sure how old they are but many have seen better days. This would be a great improvement to the neighbourhood and much better use of the space. Hard to find a reason for council not to like it.
