Multi-acre mixed-use project moves forward on Sooke Road at Happy Valley Road in Langford

A multi-acre mixed-use residential and commercial development is now underway along the 2600 and 2700-blocks of Sooke Road at the intersections of Glen Lake and Happy Valley roads.

Known informally as 2706 Sooke Road, the project will consist of at least two purpose-built rental complexes, a potential third rental building or a condominium building, and a phase of offices.

According to development plans submitted with the City of Langford, Glen Lake Road will be realigned as part of the project to connect with Happy Valley Road at Sooke Road. A controlled four-way intersection will replace the current three-way intersection at Sooke Road and Happy Valley Road while doing away with Glen Lake Road’s uncontrolled connection to Sooke Road some 100 meters to the west.
 
Two six-storey residential buildings – each likely to be comprised of approximately 80 rental apartments – will be situated along the northern edge of the property adjacent to the Galloping Goose Trail.

An additional six-storey residential building, developed as either a 60-odd-unit rental or condominium residence plus ground floor commercial space, would front onto Sooke Road while a three-storey office and retail building would overlook the future Sooke and Glen Lake roads intersection.
 
A large surface parking lot between at the centre of the development would accommodate a ratio of over one parking stall per residential unit. The surface parking would also allow for a future re-purposing of the land for additional residential or commercial usage.
 
The municipality’s rapidly expanding Happy Valley and Luxton communities have been dominated by single-family and rowhouse projects since Victoria’s rush to build housing took hold at the turn of the millennium. Low-density subdivisions sprung up along the Happy Valley Road corridor and continue to push south towards Metchosin.
 
Along the busy Sooke Road corridor the municipality has seen several lowrise, high-density condominiums materialize to the east of the Oakcrest proposal, while construction is nearing completion on a four-storey office complex for Charter Telecom at 2614 Sooke Road. C
