Downtown Victoria-proper, which includes Old Town, Harris Green and the central business district, may only see 130 units of housing completed in the remainder of, according to Citified’s construction tracking.
 
 
Two purpose-built rental towers, one rising along the 900-block of Johnson Street as the 15-storey Wedge with 97 residences, the other as the 10-storey Skinny with 37 homes along the 1000-block of Johnson Street, will collectively yield 130 net new suites for the downtown.
 
Both Wedge and Skinny are from Victoria-based developer Cox Developments, which delivered the two-tower 989 Johnson condominium project in 2019 on Johnson Street at Vancouver Street, and the V1488 rental block in 2018 on Pandora Avenue at Cook Street.
 
Aside from Cox’s towers being certainties for 2024, a six-storey rental project currently under construction by Vancouver-based J. Gordon Enterprises (on View Street at Vancouver Street) may yield an additional 165 rental units this year, although completion is likely to be realized in 2025 despite an earlier projection for occupancy in 2024.
 
Additionally, two condominium projects on the border of downtown Victoria and technically in the Fernwood neighbourhood will add housing stock to Victoria’s central core this year, both from Chard Development. Six-storey Haven, with 104 residences along the 1100-block of Johnson Street, and 12-storey Nest along the 1100-block of Yates Street with 107 suites, are targeted for move-ins this spring.
 
Presently, there are no condominiums under construction within downtown Victoria-proper, including Harris Green. Construction is not expected to get underway on downtown condominiums until 2025 at the earliest. Victoria’s downtown core has three projects underway in addition to Wedge, Skinny and J. Gordon Enterprises’ building on View Street. C
