Richmond-based Townline is making swift work of its land holdings in north downtown's Hudson District where multiple residential towers are queued for construction, including Victoria's future tallest building.
The company recently completed Hudson Mews, a 12-storey, 120 unit rental highrise with ground floor commercial space mid-way up the 700-block of Fisgard Street to the east of the 152 unit The Hudson (former Hudson's Bay Company department store and home of the Victoria Public Market). And spanning the 700-blocks of Caledonia and Herald streets is Hudson Walk, phase one, a 16-storey, 178 unit rental tower with ground floor commercial space currently under construction. Occupancy is expected by next fall.
Next year Townline plans to start construction on phase two of Hudson Walk, a 14-storey tower comprised of 110 rental units sharing interior design and layout similarities with phase one. Ground floor commercial spaces will have frontage onto Caledonia and Blanshard streets. Completion is expected in 2017.
A block south at Hudson Place Townline has approvals for upwards of 350 condo and/or rental units and commercial ground floors in two towers to the north of Hudson Mews and to the east of the Victoria Public Market. Although designs are still being finalized, one of the Hudson Place towers is approved for 24-storeys and once built will unseat the City's recent new tallest building, the 21-storey Promontory condo in Vic West. The remaining Hudson Place tower may be 17- or 19-storeys tall, however such details have not yet been confirmed. Construction could begin on the heels of Hudson Walk, phase 2's completion in 2017.
At full build-out The Hudson District will encompass over 900 residential units, 272 of which have already been built with 178 currently under construction. C
