Corvette Landing is a proposal to build a 12-storey, 83-unit condominium complex at the nexus of Constance Avenue, Naden Way and Admirals Road in the municipality of Esquimalt.
The building will be constructed with the use of engineered wood materials assembled off-site. The design will be to Passiv Haus low-energy use specifications.

There is fencing and signage up on the site. This is a cool building. New and innovative construction, decent height, and pretty affordable with 300k 1 bedrooms and cheap fees and utilities due to the construction type. I like it.
Yup, its also on major BC transit routes, close to grocery shopping and various small specialty shops (Italian cafe, bike repair, hairdresser etc), and is a harbinger of mostly great stuff happening from this site along the Esquimalt Road corridor to the new Esquimalt Municipal complex, to the proposed tower(s) at Head Street, and along to the yet-to-be constructed ?three? high rises at Songhees.
In ten years that whole stretch of Vic West-Esquimalt from the JSB to the navy base will be unrecognizable IMO, and in a very good way.
You just went and jinxed it.
This being, well, Victoria....yeah, more than likely.
Does anyone know whether this project is actually going ahead? I ask because there is no progress on site except one banner sign from the Realtors and two from the construction company. I've seen better signage for garage sales. The existing apartment is still there, boarded up. No on site or off site sales office.
That's right, there is no sales office dedicated to the project. They've sold a few units so there has been some uptake but it's not being as well advertised/promoted as it should be.
Woodframed buildings in British Columbia will be eligible to rise as tall as 12-storeys following changes to the provincial building code.
Built to the Passiv Haus energy conservation standard, the 83-unit project will also incorporate a unique construction method.
12-storey proposal is one of several highrises and mixed-use projects planned for the seaside municipality.
