In all we do, we remain committed to being good neighbours and working with the communities where we build. The project team’s community engagement and outreach process was designed to provide opportunities for stakeholders to learn about the vision for the site early on and to share their thoughts—all with the intent of maintaining a respectful and transparent dialogue.
Through a variety of outreach channels, TELUS and the project team have invited community members to share their ideas. We thank all those who participated in our process and look forward to continuing working with stakeholders to realize our vision. TELUS and the project team are committed to an equitable, inclusive and transparent process, and have made the following commitments to all stakeholders who participated in our process:
Rezoning and Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment to transition the subject lands to a Site Specific New Zone have been granted. The proposed zoning change allows a maximum building height of ±54m and a maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) of ±5.2, which has been reduced from ±5.6 in the previous design.
To provide additional certainty to stakeholders and ensure a high quality outcome that is directly aligned with the proposed zoning change, the project team has submitted a supporting Development Permit application concurrently, allowing both the zoning change and detailed architectural design of TELUS Ocean to be reviewed together by City of Victoria Staff and local area stakeholders.
