Construction begins on mixed-use office, retail and residential Esquimalt Town Square project

Construction of Esquimalt’s highly anticipated Town Square development
is officially underway adjacent to the township’s Esquimalt Road municipal hall.
The project is comprised of a five-storey office building
along Park Place with four levels of class-A office space above a ground floor commercial component. The building’s first floor will house an expanded Greater Victoria Public Library branch along with retail uses.
A mixed-use residential building
with ground floor retail space will rise to six-storeys along Park Place at Esquimalt Road. Five levels of residences will overlook the project’s central square, Park Place and Esquimalt Road.
Two additional residential buildings, which may ultimately include a mixture of condominiums and rental apartments, will be situated along the southern perimeter of the site at Park Place and Carlisle Avenue.
Esquimalt Town Square's Vancouver-based developer, Aragon Properties, anticipates a total residential density of some 130-units upon project completion, and approximately 49,000 square feet of office and retail space.
Preliminary site work began in March of last year
as crews prepared the site ahead of construction. The initial phase of construction is expected to be completed by late 2019. C
