753-761 Station Avenue is a proposal to redevelop two parcels owned by the Royal Canadian Legion, Prince Edward Branch #91 along the 700-block of Station Avenue in the City of Langford on Victoria's West Shore into modern commercial and residential spaces.
As part of the redevelopment process, the existing legion and a surface parking lot will be redeveloped into a two-storey commercial building containing a legion and banquet facilities, along with accommodation facilities for Wounded Warriors. An adjacent six-storey seniors facility will be constructed on the surface parking lot.

Excellent spot for densification.
Nice complementary development for the "Mackie" as well. Good stuff.
Huh, so this is on the same side of the street as the Alexander Mackie Lodge, huh? So the two story building replaces the current Legion building and the 6-story building is where there's currently a large parking lot.
Who owns the properties on the other side of Station Ave here, which is essentially just a big disorganized parking area at the moment?
The Woodbridge branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has been shut down by the national body for an unusual reason: It had been infiltrated by outlaw motorcycle gang members.
The decision by the Legion's national executive was delivered in a letter to members of Branch 414, also known as the MacKenzie branch, dated Feb. 12.
"It is with great sorrow that I inform you that the charter of the MacKenzie branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Provincial Command has been revoked due to the branch's overt association with outlaw motorcycle groups," says the letter, signed by the Legion's provincial president, Derek Moore.
"The overt wearing of outlaw motorcycle club colours at Legion events and premises is contrary to the Legion's Articles of Faith and disrespectful of the sacrifices made by our Veterans."
