Big changes are coming to the 800-block of Fort Street following the reveal of yet another mixed-use residential and commercial development eyed for the busy downtown thoroughfare.

Vancouver-based Salient Group has unveiled plans to erect an 11-storey, 110-unit purpose-built rental tower at 819, 825 and 827 Fort Street.

The complex, currently dubbed 825 Fort, will include rental apartments in one, two and three-bedroom configurations and a ground floor retail component sized at approximately 4,200 square feet. Two levels of below-grade parking will accommodate some 50 vehicles.

The heritage frontage of the three-storey 819 Fort Street building, constructed in 1912 as the B.C. Hardware Building and repurposed in 1913 into a hotel, will be retained and restored as part of the proposal.

825 Fort is the second purpose-built rental project to surface along the block in recent months.

Earlier this year Vancouver-based Parc Retirement Living announced Fort & Parc, a 10-storey, 280-unit seniors and workforce rental housing development that will extend from the mid-800-block of Fort Street (adjacent to the Salient Group proposal) to Quadra Street and wrap around along Quadra Street to Broughton Street.

Parc's proposal is currently before the city of Victoria.

The Parc and Salient developments are expected to get underway next year provided municipal approvals are received. If built, the total residential density between both projects could reach upwards of 400-units. C
