Village Green, phase 1 is part of a two-phase redevelopment of multiple properties along the 400-block of Niagara Street between Menzies and Croft streets in Victoria's James Bay neighbourhood.
The first phase of the project will replace 45 rental units currently on the property.

A redevelopment will bring 92 net new rental units to the corner of Menzies and Niagara streets in James Bay after getting the final go-ahead.
Victoria council on Thursday gave final approval to the 137-unit proposal’s rezoning and development permit.
The final vote on the project was pushed back by about a month so the city and developer, Primex Investments, could prepare a legal agreement giving some tenants the right to return at 20 per cent below market rent. That was secured after concerns were raised about some of the site’s current residents.

And ensuring that other tenants will pay 20 per cent above market rent. Welcome to socialism.
