Timeline: start construction as soon as possible and not worry about marketing, at least the whole tower, until construction is well underway and costs are more realistically appraised.

But alas, the lack of tradesmen is pushing developers to line up contractors months and months ahead of time even before final drawings and plans are worked out (which will start immediately).

Expect soil and excavation preliminaries by Summer 06.

I have never seen Victoria have so many cranes in the air. From Sidney to Langford I think I have counted 13 cranes operating new buildings. Then on top of that there is two huge Subbies being built. Royal Bay total living population (20,000 ) and Bear Mountain even Bigger With 3,850 houses etc, then Goldstream estates at 1,100 homes and many more thousand home developments. I would much rather see more of the highrises going up.

Can you guys believe that we have a green member on City Council for the first time this year. She voted against the Project that Mr. Black posted as she said it didn't suite Downtown and that concrete buildings are around for a long time. <--- ??????

Poll do you think she is really a green Candidate?
or do you think she is just really dumb?

Exciting times and Big News to Come.

Townline, a Vancouver Development corp. is going to publicly unwrap its proposal this week for three different properties Downtown. All three properties are going to be under one developement proposal. Two of these properties are complete city blocks!! I have posted a map of the city below. The properties affected in this proposal are blacked out inside the red circle.....Waiting to see what is in store!

This 4-storey business is ridiculous. The west is going to become another 4-storey haven a la Victoria and much of Saanich

Thanks for posting the y-sheet data. Much appreciated!

A new project is slowly making its way through the process. Holden West scooped up the details for us and it looks as though the developer is planning either a 24 and 15-storey project with a two-storey podium split up with walkways or a 10, 14 and 16-storey project.

Below are some mockups I've quickly drawn up to give an idea of the scope of the project. Holden also mentioned the architecture will be top notch, a new signature development even.

A New Chard Tower

Next Chard Development will be on Johnson Street. The building in question is the Peacock Billiards building. The owner of this building has agreed to Chard's price and is looking for a new place for business.

David Chard has built the Centra Gas Building, The Corazon, and soon The Romeo's Tower on Johnson St., less than a block away from this new site.

DC developed the Centra Gas building? I know all three of those buildings have the same architecture firm but I wasn't aware he developed all three. Crazy.

I thought he did...but maybe I am wrong....one of them also developed or designed Tillicum mall as well.

The cool thing about this new Townline proposal as part of the Bay Property, is the fact that it could be possably Victoria's tallest!

I'm stoked on the design elements of the upper floor of the tallest component. That portion looks awesome!
