Big changes are coming to the crossroads of Tillicum Road and the Trans Canada Highway at the nexus of Saanich’s Carey, Tillicum and Saanich Core neighbourhoods.
Abstract Developments has applied to the district to build a six-storey condominium complex on the northwest corner of the busy intersection at the terminus of Raymond Street South, a quiet residential corridor that parallels Tillicum Road between the Trans Canada Highway and Carey Road.
Comprised of 53 residences with an underground parking component, the building will rise as the tallest structure overlooking the intersection and follow in the footsteps of a three-storey office building at 3645 Tillicum Road completed in 2016.
With plans submitted to the district, approvals are anticipated by late 2019 or by early 2020, with construction to follow later that year or by early 2021.

The building’s location at the foot of the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, which travels along the Trans Canada Highway between Saanich Road to the south and the Old Island Highway to the north, will appeal to residents in search of alternative transportation options and a direct cycling or walking artery to downtown Victoria or the Westshore. Future rapid bus services along the highway – which are entering their first phase with the construction of a dedicated northbound transit lane and a southbound transit lane in planning – will provide residents with transit-based transportation options connecting the region.
Abstract Developments is one of the Capital Region’s most prolific real-estate development firms with multiple projects currently under construction, including the up-market Bellewood Park residential community rising along the upper Fort Street corridor near downtown Victoria, and Fifteen88, an entry-level condominium offering underway on North Dairy Road across from Hillside Shopping Centre.
