HEIGHT OF WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN VANCOUVER ISLAND'S TALLEST BUILDING SCALED BACK

Townline has released an update on the company's proposal to build the City of Victoria's tallest building. The update is reproduced below.

Townline has confirmed that a revised design for its Hudson Place One project has been submitted meeting the City’s maximum height requirement of 72 [meters]. Hudson Place One has now been reduced to 25-storeys while retaining the same architectural design language prominent in its first submission.

“We are now sitting 7mm under the 72m height maximum, not including the mechanical penthouse and the proposed architectural features.” said Justin Filuk, Townline’s Director of Development.

The revised project now features 176 suites, down from its previously proposed 178-count, achieved by making adjustments to the building’s floorplates and suite sizes. The building remains designed to appeal to a wide demographic of end users including first-time and move-up buyers with and without families, empty-nesters and downsizers, as well as investors looking for a convenient and vibrant downtown lifestyle.
