Sidney Crossing is a 98,995 square foot commercial development situated in the Town of Sidney on Victoria's Saanich Peninsula. Once built it will become the largest shopping centre on the Saanich Peninsula.
The project will consist of nine buildings with a grocery store and a drug store/electronics retailer as anchor tenants.

"The proposed $35-million Sidney Crossing project should have a permit in the next few months with ground- breaking expected next spring."
I've been confused from he beginning as to why the Town of Sidney gets a say in this development?
It's Airport Authority land, owned by the Feds.
The Airport Authority has historically been able to do whatever it wants with its holdings (which are huge, far larger than what we see as "the airport").
Perhaps when the airport leases out the land (they can't sell it, only lease it), that development is then considered a normal Sidney development requiring approval from the town?
^typically the feds have always had that policy. They will pull and pay for local building permits, etc even thou the the municipality has no jurisdiction.
Did the TC finally beat VV to the punch on something?
Na, Mike K made a Citified announcement on this thread over two years ago.
A report finds the 98,500 square foot Sidney Gateway development along Beacon Avenue West presents a big opportunity for the Town of Sidney.
A proposal to build a 100,000 square foot shopping centre on Victoria International land is one step closer to approvals.
