The latest significant proposal for the Victoria metro is Royal Roads Place, at 105m (345') and 29-storeys.

>160 residential units are envisioned. If approved at 29-storeys, this will be the tallest building in the Victoria metro and the tallest on Vancouver Island. It will also be the tallest building in BC outside of the Vancouver metro.

Great job Mr. Black and Scaper! I don't think half of those are even approved. I would love to see the skyline expand that much, but not all of those are for sure "coming to Victoria".

Colwood's 29 story condo tower has been approved. Assuming it actually gets built, it would be the tallest building in Greater Victoria. There are several highrise proposals in Victoria's suburbs right now. This is the second one to be approved. The first one was 17 stories and it was quite a few months ago, but as of yet construction hasn't started.

Nah, this thread just lists project. The Victoria Construction thread in the Western Canada forum is where the real discussions take place.

Let's add a couple more to Victoria's lineup.

This is a three-tower downtown development with 25 (72m), 19 and 15-storey towers.




This is a 20-storey suburban tower to be built atop a mountain. It's called Soaring Peaks but I wouldn't go so far as to call it the king of the hill. Far from it...



And on the same mountain, near the tower above, is a 14-storey tower called Highlander. It doesn't look too bad. It's wide, but not bad.

All things considered, that Highlander is probably a better looking building than the Hotel Grand Pacific or the Ocean Pointe.

When you made your comment about Cove Properties building crap buildings you were bang on. Their "Soaring Peaks" project is a travesty compared to the Highlander.
