Esquimalt Lions Lodge – Redevelopment
Esquimalt Lions Lodge is a 4-story 77-unit building located at 874 Fleming Street, settled within the Esquimalt neighbourhood located near a high school and many employment opportunities. GVHS has preliminary plans to redevelop the site into a 6-story 137-unit affordable rental building.
The current building has been in operation well past its effective life, has only one elevator servicing all tenants, and is not barrier-free to those in need of universally accessible lobbies, corridors, and units. The building will be built to a minimum of Step 3 to the new BC Energy Step Code. We are aiming for Step 4 – the highest level of efficiency.
We have submitted a Rezoning Application to the Township of Esquimalt and look forward to moving through the municipal approvals process. We are scheduled to go to a public hearing on Monday, July 6th, 2020.
