DB Services of Victoria has big plans

Three 12-storey towers on a downtown Langford block were recommended for approval by the city’s planning committee last May. The maximum allowable height for the properties would have to be increased to 12 storeys from 11. None of the buildings on Goldstream Avenue in that area exceeds four storeys.

Matthew McKay of DB Services applied to consolidate and rezone 10 lots. “We are investigating whether we will increase the size,” he said. “There’s a big jump in costs when you go higher.”

The project would be the first of its kind to be built because Langford has signed an agreement with the province to allow for the project to be constructed out of wood.

“Put the forest industry in B.C. back to work,” said Langford Mayor Stew Young. “It creates jobs locally and building out of wood is cheaper than steel construction, so it should make it more affordable for our residents.”
