A collection of San Francisco landmarks are the inspiration behind the latest residential development proposal for the Town of Sidney on Victoria’s Saanich Peninsula.
The Painted Ladies of Sidney by the Sea – drawing inspiration from San Francisco’s Painted Ladies rowhouses made famous by the television series Full House – is a 24-unit, three-building complex of three-storey walk-ups envisioned for the 2211, 2213 and 2215 James White Boulevard near downtown Sidney.
The proposal includes a collection of one and two-bedroom homes ranging in size from just under 550 square feet to over 850 square feet. Each building will include eight residences. 24 surface parking stalls will be situated at the rear of the property, while a single below-ground level will include storage for residents and bicycle parking.
Although the architectural design of Sidney’s take on San Francisco’s most famous rowhouses is a significant departure from the latter's Victorian and Edwardian styles, the buildings will feature traditional design elements and detail-accentuating vibrant exterior colours. And according to architectural plans, one of the buildings will even include a turret as a visual statement.
The proposal is expected to receive municipal approvals later this year, with construction starting in 2018 and occupancy permits available by 2019. C
