A Victoria developer is moving forward with plans for its first-ever project on the West Shore, having recently purchased property on Sooke Road.
Abstract Developments is seeking to redevelop a property it purchased at 2621 Sooke Rd. into a townhome community, after 23 years of building projects in Saanich, Victoria and Oak Bay.
“The West Shore is booming and that attracted us to expand into new communities like Langford,” said president/CEO Mike Miller in a news release. “We are excited to begin working with local governments who are doing everything they can to address the housing supply crisis in Greater Victoria.”
The Sooke Road lot is home to a long boarded-up single-family home and was assessed in July 2020 at $2.001 million.
Recently recognized as Green Builder of the Year and Best Townhouse Project by the Victoria Residential Builders Association, Abstract is also working to expand into Esquimalt.
The company also plans to open a home store next spring at 750A Goldstream Ave., where it will showcase its designs, floor plans and neighbourhood maps.
“As the housing crisis continues to affect Greater Victoria residents, we’re pleased to see developers such as Abstract expanding their operations to Langford and creating more attainable housing for families,” said Langford Mayor Stew Young.
“Langford council continues to work to bring various types of housing, including condos, townhomes and single-family homes to our city to accommodate our growing population and the evolving needs of our residents.”
More information about Abstract’s planned 64 townhome development is available online.
