Plans to convert West Victoria’s historic Roundhouse into a shopping area and neighbourhood hub are poised to advance this spring when they go before Victoria City Council. This is great news for buyers and would-be buyers at Bosa Properties’ 215-foot Promontory condo tower, part of the Bayview Place community that encompasses the national historic site.
“Plans for the Roundhouse include seismic upgrades and new features in the 40,000-square-foot brick building,” reads an article in the Times Colonist.
The main tenant of the revamped Roundhouse will be a grocery store that’s at least 15,000-square-feet. Focus Equities, a Mariash company, tells the Colonist that the latest designs for the Roundhouse are “edgy and exciting,” and have been refined during the past year.
“Developing the Roundhouse into a neighbourhood shopping destination with a brewery, arts and crafts, restaurant, and Vancouver Island products, has been part of the overall vision,” the article explains.
That, of course, means many more neighbourhood amenities right at Promontory’s doorstep. Ken Mariash tells the paper that the Roundhouse plans will ensure the neighbourhood “ends up being the best possible community.”
Sounds like it will indeed be a great compliment to the 21-storey tower. Find out more about the project by visiting Promontory’s sales centre at 80 Saghalie Road in Victoria, open Saturday through Wednesday from 12pm to 5pm.
