The developer of an 11-storey seniors residence now underway along Admirals Road in Esquimalt is pursuing a second adult-oriented project in the seaside municipality.
Eyed for 819-823 Esquimalt Road, near the intersection of Esquimalt Road and Dunsmuir Road a stone's throw from the Victoria-Esquimalt border, is an eight-storey complex that could be comprised of over 100 residences.
Developer Avenir Construction Group, which specializes in the construction and management of senior and adult-oriented communities operating across North America, is pursuing a rezoning for a trio of properties currently housing a two-storey commercial building, a single-family residence and a residential duplex.
The proposal emerges amid Esquimalt’s comeuppance as a highly desirable community for condominiums and multi-unit residential developments. The township, immediately west of the City of Victoria, is in the throes of a building boom with Aragon Properties’ Town Square project nearing completion adjacent to the municipal hall on Esquimalt Road (including move-in ready condominiums now selling and a rental complex nearing completion along with an office building housing a new library branch) as its Oakwoods condominiums along Lampson Street take shape. Tenfold Projects, meanwhile, is constructing the follow-up to its Swallows Landing condominiums on Dunsmuir Road with Westbay Quay, an oceanside project at the Westbay Marina.
Multiple rental projects are also underway, including a six-storey development between the 600-blocks of Constance Avenue and Nelson Street, and a five-storey building along the 600-block of Admirals Road.
Esquimalt's popularity as a walkable community adjacent to the BC Capital has propelled demand for its real-estate given the plentiful volume of transit routes connecting the region, walkable neighbourhoods within short proximity to downtown Victoria, and employment opportunities at CFB Esquimalt and the NADEN shipyards.
