Colwood Lodge is a proposal to redevelop an existing 50-unit affordable rental complex at 85 Belmont Road in the Westshore municipality of Colwood into a 15-storey tower.
The development site is situated behind the mixed-use Colwood Corners project.
An earlier proposal called for a six-storey, 139-unit design. The new proposal, if built at 15-storeys, will rise as the tallest mass timber-design building on Vancouver Island.
