First look: new design for latest condo and commercial dev eyed for Cook Street Village
Published December 5, 2017
Aragon Properties has unveiled updated development plans for its proposed Cook Street Village condominium and ground floor commercial development.
Dubbed Cook & Pendergast
and eyed for several parcels that include the current location of Pic-a-Flic Video and a Mac’s convenience store, the proposal includes 46 residences in the form of one, two and three-bedroom suites plus three commercial units fronting onto Cook and Pendergast streets.
78 parking stalls will be accommodated in a single level underground parkade with eight surface stalls available for commercial uses.
Designed by Victoria-based Cascadia Architects, the woodframe structure is enveloped by a facade utilizing artistic panels, brickwork, natural stone and varied setbacks. An overhang above the ground floor includes a landscaped green roof along the length of the building while top floor penthouse units feature recessed rooftop patios accessible through a fourth floor mezzanine.
The most recent incarnation of Cook & Pendergast's shape and massing conforms to a newly-released Fairfield neighbourhood draft community plan that encompasses the Cook Street Village corridor. The plan suggests future building heights in the Village are likely to be recessed from the currently permitted height of six-storeys to four, despite the City of Victoria’s Official Community Plan accommodating six-storey buildings in large commercial nodes such as Cook Street Village.
Aragon will present the latest revision of proposal before the Fairfield Gonzalez Community Association on December 7th.
Pending a successful municipal approvals and planning process, the project is expected to begin its marketing phase by mid-2018. C
