Mariner's Village developer Mike Barrie

Council approves Mariner’s Village expansion

District of Sooke approves Development Permit for Phase Two.

At the regular council meeting on February 13, District of Sooke council gave the green light to phase two of Mariner’s Village. Council voted to issue the Development Permit.

This is the phase that will see the building of commercial and retail space  along with residential units on the six acre property.

The new structures will butt up against Sooke Road and will have 36 residential units on the fourth and fifth floors and office space and commercial on the lower floors, as well as a parkade.

This expansion complements the 33 unit and 16 townhouse buildings already being built and nearing completion.

The developer,  Mike Barrie of Condor Properties, states he would like to see a library and a seniors’ centre located in the complex. The public will be able to use the planned plaza and walkways.

The proposed building is four storeys along Sooke Road, five storeys along Goodmere Avenue and six storeys at future Lanark Avenue.

District planner Gerard LeBlanc said, “staff found this particular phase consistent with the OCP. It fits well into the area identified for revitalization and it anchors the downtown.”

The complete Mariner’s Village development is for six phases with full build out in about 12  years. In future phases, a strong public presence along the waterfront is proposed by way of a large public wharf, boardwalk, green space and trail system.

The whole development is projected to cost $300-million.
