A complete overhaul of the waterfront at Ship Point is coming closer and closer to fruition.

To learn more about what that overhaul will entail, the public are invited to attend a presentation at Victoria City Hall on Tuesday, May 15, at 5 p.m.

Following the presentation, the next step is for City Council to approve a draft Ship Point Master Plan next month, with implementation to take place in 2020.

The Ship Point Master Plan is the culmination of a process that started about a year ago to renew the waterfront at the Inner Harbour.

The new concept includes an increase in the amount of green space and a few additional structures, but also maintains some of the car and boat parking.

As per the City of Victoria’s website, the vision for the new space includes the following:

  • Provide a site design and infrastructure to create a signature waterfront park and destination, and to support the location of year-round special events and festivals
  • Strengthen pedestrian connections along the waterfront and to the Downtown
  • Provide limited parking and improve the overall aesthetics
  • Program the site for year round activity to make the site more inviting
  • Support downtown economic health and vibrancy
  • Maintain access and circulation to the sea plane terminal

Check out some concept images below.
