Unity Commons is a mixed-use, four-storey, 15-unit rental and ground floor commercial development in the City of Victoria's Fairfield neighbourhood.
The project is planned on the site of Fairfield United Church and will include congregational space on the ground floor.

There's also some scaffolding up on the 1950s 'annex' building that is part of the church property; perhaps this is for pre-demolition?
Or I made an incorrect assumption re: how CoV labels their demo permit status, and "In Progress" means demo in progress, not permit review in progress. :confused:
Why does the Times Colonist insist on choosing negative and sensationalist headlines like this:
It would have been just as easy and accurate to say:
New homes to rise on church site
But no, they go with the headline they know will attract negative attention. I understand this will likely generate more online clicks, but it also feeds into the local anti-development sentiment that is all too prevalent in our region. There's a reason I will never pay for their publication.
Sadly negative headlines create a bigger reaction,
I once confronted the news director when I worked at CHEK, he of course denied and said they were just stating the facts, which is true, but would not admit putting the negative slant on the story will create more of a reaction, prompting people to follow the story and watch the news.
Does anyone know when demolition occurs?
