A multi-building rental development along Erskine Lane in View Royal is headed before Committee of the Whole today as proponents pursue approvals for one of the largest development undertakings within the municipality.
Planned for 9 Erskine Way
are nearly 350-units of purpose-built rental apartments across four five-storey buildings designed in a west coast theme.
The project, from Squamish-based THUJA Architecture + Design, will include a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments with 10% of homes earmarked as affordable with household incomes limited to $74,150 for studio and one-bedroom layouts, and $113,040 for two and three-bedroom layouts.
Parking will be in the form of underground parkades below the buildings, with each stall pre-wired for Level 2 electric vehicle charging. Five parking spaces at each building will include dedicated Level 2 charging stations.
As part of the project, the proponent will construct a roundabout at Erskine Lane and Watkiss Way, and resurface an informal right-of-way between Hospital Way at the Victoria General Hospital and Erskine Lane.
Pending municipal approvals, construction could get underway within 12-to-24 months.
The proposal is adjacent to a five-storey multi-family development at 7 Erskine Way
, currently moving through the approvals process, and a stone’s throw from a planned BC Transit compound
. The public transit operator is pursuing a dedicated eight-acre HandyDart yard at the intersection of Watkiss Way and Burnside Road West, which would extend to the Trans Canada Highway at the southern end of the property. C
