The Dalmatian is an 11-storey mixed-use affordable rental tower in the 1000-block of Johnson Street in downtown Victoria's Harris Green neighbourhood. The building will be the first phase of the Johnson|Cook|Yates multi-phased development.
The ground floor's Johnson Street frontage will include a state-of-the-art replacement for the City of Victoria's No. 1 firehall and a two-bay rest-ready ambulance station. An emergency communications centre, crew quarters and an office component will occupy levels two and three.

An office component will be situated on the third level of the building.
By my count this will be the one-millionth time that I've made this point about building massing: wide buildings have much more impact on views than taller/narrower buildings. Where once you could see many things, you can now see one thing. And in this case it's quite a repetitively plain thing, too.

Do we have a thread for the narrow building across the street between Mondrian and Sutton Place? (the mods on this board have given me grief a thousand times for my clever and hilarious plays on words, so maybe this one time they could switch gears and help a guy out)

The firehall's ground level looks great because -- unlike just about every other ground floor in downtown Victoria now -- it has windows that you can actually see through. Any wagers as to whether it will remain like that or if it will also get covered over eventually?
