Looks great; lots happening in Esquimalt-Vic West. I know at least a couple of those older 4 floor apartments along Craigflower are also slated to be replaced, although with what I don't know. Presumably new rental buildings.
A Calgary developer - don't know the name of it - has also apparently approached some of our neighbors with apparent interest in a broader land & property acquisition play to buy out multiple homes/properties in our area presumably with the idea of building townhomes. I gather mail-outs have or will be sent out to local residents gauging interest in selling, so they're currently "kicking the tires".
Don’t slight Esquimalt, which has a rich history
I take exception to the statement in the advertisement about “Esquimalt Town Square” on Nov. 13, because it said: “A western suburb of metropolitan Victoria … Esquimalt was once not as well known.”
Wrong! Esquimalt was known to the Royal Navy as early as 1837 and by Order-in-Council, June 1865, Esquimalt was made the permanent headquarters of the Royal Navy Pacific Fleet. Not Victoria!
In 1887, Esquimalt, not Victoria, was chosen as the site to establish the first permanent Army base on the West Coast of Canada. The Royal Canadian Artillery ‘C’ Battery were the first Canadian Troops stationed here.
One of the terms of B.C. joining confereration was the building of the first graving dock in Esquimalt.
Esquimalt, not Victoria, has been headquarters for the Royal Canadian Navy since its beginning as the Naval Service of Canada in 1910. The second graving dock [Panamax], the third largest in the world, opened in 1927 in Esquimalt and continues to serve the ships of the world.
There are many places named Victoria. There is only one Esquimalt and we the residents are proud of who we are. We do not play second fiddle to Victoria.
