A development plan by Lefevre & Company for the remaining parcels of Vic West’s decade-long Railyards development has been granted a public hearing by City of Victoria councillors.

The updated development concept, requiring approvals for revisions made to an earlier plan, calls for three residential buildings up to nine storeys tall built over three phases with a combined 144 condo and townhome units on The Railyard's southern-most land.

The first phase will consist of 40 homes in a three storey woodframe building situated between Tyee and Central Spur roads at Gaudin Road, a future Railyards access road. 49 stalls of underground parking will be built.

Immediately to the south of phase one, phase two will rise to four storeys with 38 woodframe units above a 51 stall underground parkade connected to phase one.

As part of phases one and two, five “sky homes” will be located to the east of the condo buildings. Sky homes will feature two levels of residential space above an entrance off Central Spur Road.

The third and final phase will be in the form of a 66 unit concrete building rising to nine storeys from the east and seven storeys from the west immediately to the north of the Point Ellice/Bay Street Bridge. The underground parkade with 78 stalls will complete the multi-building parking structure and provide a secondary vehicle access point for the shared underground. 10 multi-level “garden homes” will line the building’s east facade and front onto the Galloping Goose Trail overlooking the harbour.

Condo units in phases one through three will include studio/bachelor, one bedroom and two bedroom layouts.

The Railyards is situated on a former railroad freight staging facility on the banks of Victoria’s Upper Harbour. Currently under construction is a four storey, 49 unit condo, dubbed Bond's Landing III, expected to be completed by early next year. C
