50-unit rental complex with unique light display pitched for Admirals Road near CFB Esquimalt
Campbell River-based UrbanWest Developments has proposed a 50-unit, six-storey purpose-built rental complex for the 600-block of Admirals Road in Esquimalt.
The woodframed structure, with a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, will rise on a duo of single-family-dwelling lots at 681 and 685 Admirals Road overlooking the nexus of Admirals Road, Naden Way and Woodway Road near the eastern entrance to CFB Eesquimalt.
Designed by Squamish-based THUJA Architecture + Design, the building will feature a large overhang extending from the sixth floor and a unique ground floor façade treatment illuminated by night.
The project is currently going through the municipal planning process and is expected to receive formal approvals later this year.
Esquimalt’s western half has undergone a development boom in recent years, and multiple residential buildings that include several highrise towers are slated to rise throughout the first half of the 2020’s.
Kitty-corner from UrbanWest’s proposal, Alberta-based Standing Stone Developments is in the final stages of planning for Corvette Landing, a 12-storey, 80-some unit condominium tower coming for Constance Avenue at Naden Way. Apart from its unique design, the building will also feature a new wood-based method of construction.
And just a stone’s throw to the south of Corvette Landing are proposals for two residential towers, one earmarked as an 11-storey mixed-use seniors residence with nearly 100-units of rentals, 38 condominiums and commercial space (named Vista), and the other a rental complex rising to 13-storeys with 109-units (dubbed Shoaling Heights).
Further west along Esquimalt Road the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia plans to build 24-units of affordable seniors-targeted apartments adjacent to the St. Peter & St. Paul's Anglican Church at Grafton Street.
Two blocks east of Admirals Road along Esquimalt Road at Park Place, Aragon Properties is busy building its Esquimalt Town Square project, a mixed-use, four-building development that will feature an office building, two condominium low-rises and a low-rise rental apartment adjacent to Esquimalt’s municipal hall.
Circling back to Admirals Road, two blocks north of the UrbanWest proposal a five-storey, 30-unit rental building has been unveiled for the 800-block of Admirals Road at Colville Road.
In total over 500-units of condominiums and rental apartments are planned for Esquimalt's western half over the next several years.
