The Sawyer Block is a six-storey, 60-unit woodframe purpose-built rental building with nearly 900 square feet of ground floor commercial space. Units will be maintained as rentals in perpetuity as part of an agreement made with the City of Victoria.
There is no on-site vehicle parking provided, however, 60 bicycle stalls will be available for residents and retail users.

NYC built the empire state building in 13 months; it took this town over a decade to just fuss about and finally approve a 6-floor speed bump. Unreal. And "typical". That said its a nice looking little structure that should contribute to the ongoing process of helping revive a Fort Street that was becoming pretty ho-hum. Nice.
Fort between Blanshard and Quadra is closed all day today as the crane is removed.
There will be a CMHC announcement regarding this building tomorrow.
Perhaps an affordability component is coming?
Any construction update photos?
