@Gary H did you notice the drone flying around Promontory, Bayview, New Dockside site tonight? Wonder if it's for new Dockside or just a realtor doing aerials of a new listing.

The latest email from Bosa says:

 

"We continue to work with the City of Victoria on our Development Permit for our first phase of Dockside Green.

This includes three towers along Tyee Road in the Tyee-Greenway Precinct and
amenities such as a pedestrian plaza, the Playroom (all ages playground), and the Greenway.
Construction on our new Sales Centre will commence at 391 Harbour Road. We anticipate completion of
construction early 2020. Our team will be hosting a public open house in early fall 2019 (exact date still to be
determined). Stay tuned for more information."
 
Looks like there's some action finally....

Nice.

It’ll be a mix of rentals and condos.

In the original plan wasn't there a hotel envisioned for the site? Presume that is no longer in the cards for DG?

Shots for the 2101 Promontory penthouse listing I suspect.

...

 

So it appears that Bosa is making some changes to the designs created by the previous DG planners.  As you recall, prior to the sale, DG created a series of pre-designed "subdivisions" that if built as designed would be exempt from the development permitting process.

I “think” those permits may have expired? Jackerbie may be able to help us out here.

Based on my very quick read of the legal covenant, each individual parcel requires a separate Development Permit.

 

In Victoria, subdivision applications require Development Permits when located in a DP Area. So in the case of Dockside Green, my read is that a DP is not required for subdivision consistent with the approved master plan, but a DP is required for any construction on the site.

You might be thinking of Roundhouse, which currently looks toward both a hotel and a supermarket.

 

As far as I recall Dockside wasn't going to have either one. I believe they envisioned a small corner store in the building closest to BMW but nothing that approached a large scale food store.

Thanks for the explanation.  IIRC, no rezoning is required as the site was rezoned under the previous master development agreement?

The whole site was rezoned under the master development agreement, so any proposed development that is consistent with the zone wouldn't have to go through the rezoning process. In any case, rezoning would only be necessary if the inconsistency is the proposed density or land use, as those are the two things that cannot be varied through a Development Permit.

Were we aware that 202 Harbour Road (former Harbour Landing project) is up at Advisory Design Panel today?

There was a backhoe in the lot about a month ago, uncovering and recovering some dirt around the "vee" of the pipes. There have also been quite a few people with test kits (but a curious lack of shovels or test drilling equipment)

The architect is James E Irwin, which has done work with GAIN (the automotive group) in the past. The earlier architect was Low Hammond Rowe. The prior proposal: https://victoria.cit...arbour-landing/

There was a drone there on Wednesday in the pit on Tyee. I didn't stop to see it fly and see what it was up to.

The next phase of Dockside Green goes to Advisory Design Panel next week. 359-369 Tyee Road (basically the area that has been pre-dug). Three towers ranging in height from 13- to 16-stories.

 

This along with 202 Harbour Road having gone to ADP last month hopefully means we'll start to see some heavy activity again in this part of town in the next couple of years.

Don't forget Merridale.

There was a group of three men walking the site and disturbing the deer yesterday.

This year (and this morning) there has been an much larger increase in noisy hull grinding and pressure washing. It won't be long after the new units are built that the residents start complaining about the noise.

I'm still pro shipyard even with the noise. I'm expecting the new buildings to be a great sound buffer for Promontory/Bayview while echoing it back across to downtown.
