We are thrilled to share the news that we are building 10 new Habitat homes in North Saanich in 2019! Located at Bakerview Place and Lochside Drive, the rezone will make way for 17 single-family houses (to be built by the developer) and 10 multi-family homes to be built by Habitat. Not only is this is the most significant land donation in Habitat Victoria’s history, it also represents, at 37%, the highest percentage of affordable-to-market housing ratio we’ve seen and will result in our largest build project to date.
After almost two years of effort, we are truly grateful to the District for approving this project, and incredibly thankful to Reay Developments for this remarkable donation to affordable housing. We anticipate construction to begin in the Fall of 2019 following the completion of all the necessary site work.
Habitat Victoria's next build project will be a single family home on a micro lot in Central Saanich. This lot was generously donated by Cube Project Management Group and is part of a 20 home development. Thank you as well to the District of Central Saanich for making this part of the development's amenity package. Construction is expected to begin Fall of 2018.
