Published November 8, 2017
A development vision for a strip mall home to Pic-A-Flic Video in Victoria’s Cook Street Village has been revealed by Vancouver-based Aragon Properties.
The company has been hosting community consultation sessions for what it hopes will become a mixed-use residential and commercial development
at the intersection of Cook and Pendergast streets one block north of the Village’s Starbucks coffee shop.
Building massing options, otherwise known as schematics identifying overall size and scale options for a proposed building, have been presented to the Fairfield Gonzales Community Association in four, five and six-storey variants with the two taller massings depicting setbacks for upper levels.
Aragon’s eventual rezoning application before the City of Victoria will be adapted based on feedback received from the community, according to the developer's webiste. The company maintains the development process is in its infancy and its design considerations will continue to evolve.
