The Capital Region will see its largest-ever concurrent rental housing construction launch from one firm with the groundbreaking of two projects in Langford and Central Saanich.
Toronto-based Starlight Developments is readying to commence work on a 597-unit, four-building community
near Florence Lake along the 1100-block of McCallum Road in Langford. The six-storey project will also include approximately 9,000 square feet of commercial space.
Construction will take several years to complete, and is part of a significant volume of new housing supply taking place along the McCallum Road corridor that spans between Leigh Road and Langford’s Costco near Millstream Road.
Meanwhile in Central Saanich, Starlight is proceeding with the Saanich Peninsula’s largest rental project in recent history, coming to the former Marigold Nursery lands off Lochside Drive along Hackett Crescent.

Collectively, Starlight’s active construction inventory between the two municipalities will total 832-units of rental housing, and represents the first substantial housing projects undertaken directly by Starlight on the south Island, not including a small townhome project
currently under construction in James Bay totalling 24-units.
The company has plans for multiple other rental investments throughout the Capital, including a 1,500-unit rental proposal in downtown Victoria known as Harris Green Village
, scheduled for a public hearing on February 9th.
If approved, Starlight would oversee the redevelopment of nearly two downtown Victoria blocks, starting with the former location of the Harris automotive dealership on Cook Street between Yates and View streets as two towers of 20 and 21-storeys
. Harris Green Village’s second phase would entail the entire block currently home to London Drugs and The Market on Yates bordered by Yates, Quadra, View and Vancouver streets, where three towers up to 32-storeys tall
are planned. C
