48-unit condo and rental complex approved for upper Johnson Street
Published August 11, 2017
A six-storey condominium and rental apartment complex has been approved along the 1100-block of Johnson Street in Victoria’s North Park neighbourhood to the east of the city's downtown core.
Dubbed The Row
, the 48-unit woodframed building at 1154 Johnson Street will be situated on land currently occupied by a surface parking lot and three vacant single-family homes.
The unit make-up, according to Victoria-based development firm Kang & Gill, will comprise of some ten-units of strata-titled rental apartments – with a covenant ensuring the long-term availability of the units in the City's rental pool – and 38 condominium homes. Layouts of bachelor, one-bedroom and two-bedroom configurations sized between 463 and 1,191 square feet are envisioned.
A single level of underground parking will accommodate 58 vehicles.
Victoria councillors voted four-to-two in favour of the proposal, with councillors Madoff and Thornton-Joe casting the dissenting votes.
With approvals in-hand, construction on The Row is expected to get underway by late 2017 or in early 2018.
The upper Johnson Street corridor has seen a surge in development activity in recent years with the 2015 completion of The Chambers
, a five-storey, 34-unit purpose-built rental complex immediately to the east of The Row's location. A half-block to the west of The Row's site, Tenfold Projects has started work on The Wade
, a 102-unit, five-storey all-concrete condominium development with ground floor commercial space. Across Cook Street immediately to the west of The Wade's construction site, Alpha Project Developments completed the 10-storey, 93-unit Mondrian
mid-rise condominium tower in 2013, and Cox Developments expects to start work in 2018 on a 10-storey, 37-unit mid-rise tower at 1088 Johnson Street
west of the Mondrian. 1088 Johnson Street is the second phase of a two-phased residential development
spanning between Pandora Avenue and Johnson Street along Cook Street. C
