Downtown Victoria's Hudson District is nearing the completion of its latest purpose-built rental tower, Hudson Walk One, as developer Townline lays out plans for additional buildings.

The 16-storey, 178-unit concrete highrise situated between the 700-blocks of Caledonia Avenue and Herald Street is on track for an August 1st occupancy date while Hudson Walk Two, a 15-storey, 106-unit tower east of its 16-storey counterpart, is now underway with occupancy planned for the spring of 2017.

Townline's director of Victoria developments, Justin Filuk, says that with interest in the Hudson District growing stronger by the day, the company hopes to keep its momentum going and fast-track development opportunities.

"We expect to move forward relatively soon on additional residential towers housing a mix of condos and rental apartments, which we're calling Hudson Place One and Two, and market conditions permitting, we hope to have the entire district built-out within five years," Filuk said.

Already approved as the future tallest building in Victoria, Hudson Place One is destined to become a landmark given its sheer size. And considering the building's future prominence on the skyline, both Townline and municipal staff agree that the design must be handled accordingly.

"The City of Victoria has echoed our desire for an iconic building design," Filuk said, adding that Townline is currently engaged in discussions with municipal staff to arrive at a design concept appropriate for such an architectural focal point.

As development activities continue residents of the burgeoning Hudson District can expect a variety of new amenities, ranging from a children's play park to art installations.

"We're planning to incorporate a children's play area between the Hudson Walk towers together with a dog run. We're also looking at voluntary art contributions for Hudson Walk's public spaces. Later this fall we will reveal who we've selected for the art component and whether this is something we'll carry throughout the Hudson District," Filuk says.

Although retail tenant information is still forthcoming for both Hudson Walk towers, Filuk does confirm that several parties have expressed interest in leasing Hudson Walk Two's planned brewpub kitty-corner from Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre on Blanshard Street.

"We've had several parties express interest in the brewpub space but there is still a lot of time before any operator has to make a commitment," he said.

For more information on Hudson Walk One's rental units, contact Townline at hudsonwalk@townline.ca. Unit previews and site tours are now underway with a May 1st launch for rental acquisitions. Hudson Walk One's units are comprised of studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, and townhome layouts with rents starting at $995. C
