Perhaps the CoV is "Northern Junking" the process. Can't rush these things through without years and years of analysis. After all, it's not 24/7 camping in city parks. There are massive repercussions to approving a 10-storey seniors' building in a city's downtown core.
Old folks aren't what they used to be. 65 year olds were born in 1952. I have it on good authority that people born in the sixties will be old folks in the near future. Astounding but true.

What's happening here? It's been over a year since anyone's posted about it and over a year since there were any updates on the Development Tracker.
The project was endorsed unanimously by Council on August 8, 2019. It will be sent to a Public Hearing after all of the legal agreements have been drafted and registered on Title. So as far as I know, it's legal documents holding things up, which may or may not be due to the lenders (that's usually been the case with developments I work on).
Revised plans were posted to DevTracker today. No changes to the exterior, but they are increasing total unit count to 280 and increasing the # of student rentals. There are 14 units set aside as affordable rentals (5% of overall total).
A letter listing all of the revisions is here: https://tender.victoria.ca/webapps/ourcity/Prospero/FileDownload.aspx?fileId=82D173DF-E416-4331-81C6-555BC2A48903&folderId=11180C170927145216076033
A public hearing is anticipated before mid-year for this project; unit count remains 280.
