Jubilee neighbourhood's latest residential proposal could deliver 32 apartments to Fort at Duchess
MIKE KOZAKOWSKI, CITIFIED.CA
A 32-unit rental complex has been proposed by developer Domo Construction Ltd. on Fort Street at Duchess Street in the City of Victoria’s Jubilee neighbourhood.
 
Planned for 1906 and 1912 Duchess Street east of Richmond Road and south of the Royal Jubilee Hospital lands, the five-storey woodframed building will include a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites, five of which will be designated as affordable or below-market.
 
A single level of below ground parking will accommodate 29 vehicles, including three stalls for visitors.
 
Currently situated on the development site are two single-family dwellings comprised of approximately seven residential suites.
 
As part of the development concept, the City of Victoria is requesting that approximately 300 square meters of Domo Construction's property be dedicated as roadway in order to cut back the sharp triangular corner where Duchess and Fort streets meet. The new intersection would allow for a smoother entry onto Duchess Street from Fort Street.

The proposal is one of several multi-unit housing proposals moving through the approvals process in the immediate area.
 
Nearby at the intersection of Richmond Road and Fort Street Alberta-based Milliken Developments has initiated an application to build 135 rental residences geared towards seniors. The five-storey proposal is slated for lands occupied by the Fort Royal Medical Centre office building adorned with a distinctive Rod of Asclepius art piece.
 
Adjacent to the Milliken proposal is a still on-going effort to redevelop the iconic Turner’s Building on a triangular lot bordered by Richmond Road, Birch Street and Pembroke Street. The project could consist of two buildings, one a five-storey office and retail lowrise with frontage onto Richmond Road and the other a four-storey, 23-unit rental residence fronting onto Pembroke Street.
 
Two blocks north on Richmond Road at Bay Street developer Urban Core Ventures is currently constructing a seven-unit apartment opposite the Royal Jubilee Hospital’s patient care tower. Completion is expected by mid-summer.
 
And finally to the south of the three projects is 1811 Oak Bay Avenue, a five-storey, 15-unit apartment planned for the Oak Bay strip at Bank Street. C
