Victoria-based development firm Kang & Gill has proposed a six-storey, 61-unit condominium project near Uptown Shopping Centre.
Known as 851-881 Short Street, the woodframed building will be situated one block south of the shopping centre adjacent to a series of low-rise residential buildings developed in recent years.
Designed by Vancouver-based Koka Architecture + Design, 851-881 Short Street will feature a stepped down massing maintaining a five-storey height along the street with a six-storey height along the south (rear) side of the building. The building's most striking architectural features are angled glass balconies along its Short Street frontage.
Pending successful municipal approvals, construction will get under next year with completion in 2018.
The proposal comes as Uptown Shopping Centre developer Morguard prepares to build Saanich’s tallest building, a 14-storey mixed-use purpose-built rental tower with two levels of retail space, a single floor of parking and eleven levels of apartments at Ravine Way and Carey Road. The building will become Uptown's fourth and last phase.
Residential developments in the Uptown area, otherwise known as Saanich's core, have been appearing in recent years as the shopping centre and its immediate area assume the role of Saanich's urban node. C
