Nearly 130-unit rental complex envisioned for West Bay Terrace in Esquimalt
An Alberta-based developer is proposing nearly 130 rental residences along the 500-block of West Bay Terrace at Dunsmuir Road in Esquimalt.
Wexford Developments has applied to construct a five-storey complex on the footprint of  530-538 West Bay Terrace and 877-879 Dunsmuir Road, currently home to five single storey multi-unit rental buildings.
The proposal, designed by Victoria-based de Hoog Kierulf Architects, spans roughly 170 meters north to south, and includes five residential levels with a rooftop amenity area for residents. 90 parking stalls will be accommodated below the building.
The housing mix includes 11 townhomes of varying sizes, and a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Wexford’s concept is the latest redevelopment effort in the immediate area as Esquimalt’s West Bay waterfront catches the eyes of the development community given its oceanside location and proximity to downtown Victoria.
Nearby, developer Tenfold Projects is currently building West Bay Quay, a condominium project at the foot of Head Street at Lyall Street adjacent to West Bay Marina. Tenfold is a patership with the developer which delivered Swallows Landing adjacent to Wexford’s proposal, a luxury multi-phased condominium effort that includes two nine-storey towers and a collection of townhomes on a rise overlooking the Inner Harbour.
Meanwhile, developer GT Mann Contracting has recently completed a five-storey condominium, dubbed Harbour Landing, at 833-835 Dunsmuir Road just a stone’s throw from 530 West Bay Terrace, as developer Lexi Group nears the marketing phase for Pacific House, a 12-storey condominium slated for Head Street between Wollaston Street and Esquimalt Road.
In Esquimalt’s civic core Aragon Properties is on the cusp of completion of Esquimalt Town Square, a mixed-use condominium, rental and office project that will also include a new branch of the township’s Greater Victoria Public Library. Esquimalt Town Square, situated adjacent to the municipal hall, is now selling its Arbutus and Douglas condominiums. The developer is also busy building Oakwoods, a high-end condominium offering along the 400-block of Lampson Street.
And not far from the civic centre multiple residential projects are under construction in the western half of the township, including an 11-storey seniors residence on Admirals Road just north of Esquimalt Road, a six-storey rental complex west of that project, another to its northeast, and on Admirals Road at Colville Road a rental development just completed.
