Esquimalt approves residential tower with ground floor urgent care medical clinic

Esquimalt council has approved a 12-storey condominium tower at the intersection Esquimalt Road and Head Street.
Lexi Development Group’s proposal, dubbed Pacific House, envisions 66 residences in a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom configurations, plus three townhomes with street level access fronting onto Wollaston Street.
Rising to nine-storeys above Esquimalt Road with an additional three levels in a stepped format along Head Street (to Wollaston Street), Pacific House will stand as one of the tallest buildings in the municipality.
Council’s support was contingent on a plan by the developer to situate an urgent care medical clinic
within the tower’s Esquimalt Road retail frontage, a usage pitched by Lexi Development in May of this year some 16 months following the project’s initial reveal in early 2018
Throughout the planning process the design morphed from a 12-storey height at Esquimalt Road with a further three-storeys stepping down to Wollaston Street, totalling 15-storeys. The initial unit count totalled 70 suites.
With approvals secured, construction on the building could proceed next year, pending the demolition of the shuttered Super Low Food Market building currently situated on the property. C
