A giant addition to Victoria’s skyline is now on the horizon.

As of Thursday, April 12th, the motion to grant a development permit for a 26 storey mixed-use building at 777 Herald Street was passed, five votes to three.

Set to be Victoria’s tallest building, the structure will contain 176 residential units, with a rooftop patio and a 1500 sq. ft. ground floor reserved for commercial use.

There will also be six levels of underground parking with 259 spaces, 192 residential bicycle parking stalls, and six visitor bicycle stalls.

The building will be called Hudson Place One and is slated for completion by early 2020.

The developers, Townline Homes, are also working on completing the pitch for their second tower, Hudson Place Two, which will be another mixed-use residential/commercial building located at 1700 Blanshard Street.
