The Capital Region Housing Corporation (CRHC) has submitted a proposal to the municipality of Saanich to build a 73-unit affordable housing development.
Eyed for a vacant lot at 3816 Carey Road and the east end of Kamloops Avenue, the four-storey woodframe complex will rise as the second-to-last phase of CRHC’s Mount View Heights ‘campus of care’ multi-phased housing district north of Uptown Shopping Centre.
Dubbed Westview, the collection of studio, one, two and three-bedroom suites will be targeted at seniors, adults with disabilities, working singles and families. An interior courtyard will include gardening plots for residents while a single level of underground parking will accommodate 48-stalls.
Pending municipal approvals, construction is expected to get underway this year with completion scheduled for late 2018.
Situated on an eight-acre parcel along the 3800-block of Carey Road, the former Mount View Elementary School lands have undergone a transformation into a multi-modal social housing district that includes five buildings to-date. Following the completion of Westview, a remaining undeveloped parcel (fronting directly onto Carey Road) may be developed into office spaces or residences, or include a mix of uses.
CRHC operates nearly 1,300 housing units throughout the Capital Regional District. In addition to Westview, CRHC is currently developing The Summit at Quadra Village, an $86-million, 320-unit seniors residential and dementia care facility along Hillside Avenue near Quadra Street. The Summit will replace the 243-resident Oak Bay Lodge and 77-resident Mt. Tolmie Hospital. C
