The Apex Site property on Douglas Street at Humboldt Street in downtown Victoria, also known as the 'Budget Lot,' is the focus of a redevelopment effort known as TELUS Ocean, an innovation and employment hub for 250 TELUS employees, ground level retail space, and six levels of leasable office space.
