This is unbelievable. 10 years ago I never would have imagined we would be inundated with new highrise proposals every couple of days.

Cities tend to grow in spurts, right?

Remember how the newspaper loved to call this boom "the greatest development boom in Victoria's history"? Clearly it wasn't, but they kept saying it...and now here we are a couple of years later and -- what do you know -- it may actually end up being just that.

New 15-story proposal in Langford, called "Langford Station". The rendering seems to show only 13 stories. I added it to the list on the first page of this thread.

it's because you can't see the top two set back floors of the tower.

The Wave

Hi Aastra,

Thanks for great photos!!

Any chance of seeing a new one of The Wave. I hear the tiling is up and complete and it looks fairly classy.

We bought a condo in it, and would love to see what it looks like!

A new project recently approved in one of Victoria's western burbs looks like it's actually going ahead. Here's an updated rendering from www.silkwindwestshore.ca

Thanks Speed0Pro!

Here is a photo of the sign in front of Colwood Corners.



Also a new rendering of the Crystal View will be open to the public at the Moss Street Market mid July.

The Art Gallery of Victoria's deal with Westbank for a condo/gallery complex was quashed by the city. So now Westbank has plans to build a smaller condo complex, minus the art gallery building:


Picture provided by Robert Randall (courtesy of Westbank?) over at www.vibrantvictoria.ca/forum

Considering the high-profile location on the border between the south end of downtown and James Bay, the ground floor looks much too suburban for my tastes.

I could look at Victoria all day (sounds pervy, haha).

That's crazy that there is a 130m proposal! Awesome. Congratulations and I hope it goes through!

Victoria is certainly booming. It is too bad there is little Victoria representation these days on the forum with a lot of the traffic going to vibantvictoria.ca. I think there needs to be some serious Victoria bragging going on, particularly in the Canada subforum. Victoria blows all other mid-sized Canadian cities out of the water, and perhaps even some of the larger ones.
