The construction start of Vancouver Island's future tallest building is only weeks away, Citified has learned.
 
The 25-storey, 85 metre tall mixed-use condominium and ground floor commercial tower, dubbed Hudson Place One and situated at 777 Herald Street, is the second-to-last phase of developer Townline’s Hudson District community in downtown Victoria.
 
Hudson Place One's 176 luxury residences will feature studio homes, one and two-bedroom suites plus a collection of sub-penthouse and penthouse residences. Square footage will range from just below 500 square feet to nearly 1,900 square feet.
 
This week construction crews began the installation of the project's crane base and anticipate a formal construction launch by mid-March. The full crane will be erected between March 14th and 16th.
 
Although the six level underground excavation for Hudson Place One has been underway since last year, developer Townline must still secure final municipal approvals due to proposed building design variances. A formal green light is anticipated by mid-spring, according to a Townline representative.
 
The company anticipates Hudson Place One's build-out to be two years with completion slated for the spring of 2020.
 
Hudson Place Two, eyed to the east of Hudson Place One with frontage onto Blanshard and Fisgard streets, will eventually complete the The Hudson District. The final height and massing of the mixed-use residential and ground floor commercial tower has yet to be finalized.
 
Hudson Place One will stand nine metres taller than the Island’s current tallest building, the 26-storey, 75-metre tall Beacon condominium tower in downtown Nanaimo. The building eclipsed Victoria’s 22-storey Orchard House in the mid-1990’s to claim the title of the Island’s tallest building. The current tallest building in Victoria, completed in 2014, stands 66-metres tall over 21 floors. C
