The Challenge:

City Zoning Regulation 

The City of Victoria’s Zoning Bylaw Regulation requires 35 parking spots on this site. We have applied to the City of Victoria for a parking variance after running a successful parking study in 2018. We are seeking City Council approval to revitalize this building and further develop Quadra Village as a hub for the arts.

Community Outreach

From May 2018 to present, we have been engaging with the Quadra Village community to share ideas and receive feedback on this project:

  • Requesting Letters of Support from local businesses
  • Addressing the Quadra Village Neighbourhood Action Committee
  • Addressing Mayor Helps and meeting with City Councillors
  • Informing the neighbourhood via a Canada Post postcard drop and inviting feedback

Project Timeline

  • May 2018: Parking Study Completed
  • June 2019: Committee of the Whole – Victoria City Councillors vote to move the project forward
  • Summer 2019: Public Hearing and decision made on parking variance application
  • Begin construction!

Moving Forward

Through this application for variance, we have had the opportunity to meet and begin exciting collaboration projects with our neighbouring businesses. We look forward to continuing these conversations and sharing ideas for the betterment of the Quadra Village Neighbourhood.
