Mixed-use Development Integrates into the Neighbourhood

Capital Park comprises 2.5 hectares of land strategically located across from the Provincial Legislature in the heart of Victoria, British Columbia. This project represents a significant development for the Capital Region and the local economy, marking a commitment by the province to retain a significant presence in downtown Victoria. In association with Endall Elliott Associates, the new development includes both residential and commercial spaces for the landmark site.

THE MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT WILL BE CONSTRUCTED OVER THREE PHASES AND INCLUDE:

  • Over 21,832 square meters of office
  • 14,400 square meters of residential
  • Over 1,860 square meters of street-front retail space

An important component of the project was to enhance the area without jeopardising the established essence of the neighbourhood, which dates back to the 1940s. Community garden spaces, generous greenways, and the proposal to relocate and revitalise heritage buildings are several features that emphasize our commitment to the current neighbourhood dynamic, while opening the site to the broader community.

The project features significant landscaping and plaza areas for both the public and the people who call Capital Park home. A broad plaza featuring water fountains, trees, green roofs and a retail pavilion connects the lobbies of the two office buildings.

The architectural design takes strong queues from the adjacent Legislature and Queen’s Printer building, incorporating masonry and strong vertical articulation into a contemporary expression. Many sustainable initiatives are incorporated into the building design including a holistic approach to heating and cooling between the residential and office buildings, green roofs, solar domestic hot water and solar shading.
