I noticed on the main page of the Dockside Green website that it states an expected completion of DG by 2027, which I don't recall it saying the last few times I've been on there scouring for some sort of indication that activity might ramp up soon. Any news of what's to come next given that that little office building on Harbour Rd is either done or just about there, and the Merridale Distillery has been approved?

I'm getting antsy.

^ Merridale was approved in September, I believe. The BP is in but not issued.

The original completion date was 2007 so I’d get an ant trap....

A 2027 completion would mean one or two midrise buildings or towers completed every year. They haven't had a major building completed in the last 10 years, so yeah, don't hold your breath.

The railyards should just continue along the other side of the bridge. Once upon a time I was excitied to purchase in Dockside, not so much now that it's flatlined.

Well, they did get a cluster of buildings up in the last boom so they caught a chunk of it.

BP is in progress...its a LEED Gold, mass timber distillery. First of its kind in North America (that we know of) so we are taking our time as you can't buy LEED points if you screw up!

It will be high Class A office with Acheson Law on the top two floors. Retail on ground is currently for lease through Colliers. 

 

For those who haven't had a reason to go down Harbour Road recently, this is the completed building at 376 Harbour Road.  

Acheson Law are moved in, and looks like they're still in need of retail tenants (the aerial shot is from the Colliers listing). 

I'm liking this latest addition, facing Point Hope shipyard as it does, and it's nice to see another bit of this stretch completed.

If nothing else, this latest addition to Dockside Green helps hide the boxcar-style rental project.

The building height to the top of the little flag is within the allowance, so they avoided having to apply for a height variance  ;)

I was going to comment that at least it hides that god-awful shipping container directly behind it. Bejebus that is one fugly little cuss of a structure, completely at odds with the form and style of the surrounding buildings. At best it looks a like a warehouse.

Perhaps it's meant to pay homage to the stunning low-cost housing of the past like Evergreen Terrace.

If anything I would say that the collection of low rise buildings, particularly the shipping container aspects, or more in keeping with the form and style of the neighbourhood. It's the tall building at the back that are out of place, looking like they could be pulled from just about anywhere in Victoria, Vancouver, Kelowna...

 

I like the industrial aspects. I thought that was one of the defining characters of this neighbourhood, including both Dockside Green and the Railyards.

I agree with Jackerbie. They make an interesting transition between Point Hope Shipyard and the high rises on Tyee.
