An Oak Bay Avenue retail strip featuring a Garden Works nursery, a framing shop and a plumbing business is slated for redevelopment into a mixed-use residential and commercial building, Citified has learned.
The complex will be comprised of a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom suites across the second, third and fourth floors, while some 7,500 square feet of retail space will front onto Oak Bay Avenue and Redfern Street.
The proposal, designed by Victoria-based Cascadia Architecture, features spacious balconies with wooden awnings as a primary architectural element and utilizes a light colour palette throughout the façade. The ground floor treatment with upwards of four retail spaces will extend the modernization of the Oak Bay Avenue commercial district further west.
Jawl Residential’s proposal is one of several projects making its way through the municipal planning process in the immediate area.
