Construction start on Vancouver Island’s tallest building just weeks away

The 25-storey, 85 metre tall mixed-use condominium and ground floor commercial tower, dubbed Hudson Place One and situated at 777 Herald Street, is the second-to-last phase of developer Townline’s Hudson District community in downtown Victoria.

Hudson Place One’s 176 luxury residences will feature studio homes, one and two-bedroom suites plus a collection of sub-penthouse and penthouse residences. Square footage will range from below 500 square feet to nearly 1,900 square feet.

This week construction crews began the installation of the project’s crane base and anticipate a formal construction launch by mid-March. The full crane will be erected between March 14th and 16th.

Although the six level underground excavation for Hudson Place One has been underway since last year, developer Townline must still secure final municipal approvals due to proposed building design variances. A formal green light is anticipated by mid-spring, according to a Townline representative.
