Cut down to 25-Storeys, Hudson Place 1 Is Still The Capital’s Highest

Plans for what would have been the tallest building on Vancouver Island have been pared down by four storeys. That decision means the Beacon in Nanaimo will remain the Island’s title-holder at 27-storeys.

Even so, it looks as though Townline, developer of Victoria’s Hudson District, is preparing to beat the capital-region record as the building with the most storeys. It is now planning a 25-storey condominium tower with the permitted height of 236 feet at 1700 Blanshard Street., fronting Blanshard and Herald Streets.
