Update: This building is now being built (August 2018) and the units are for sale. See here: The Seven, Nanaimo

Recognize the vacant lot pictured in these Google Streetview photos? It's where Farquhar intersects with Victoria Rd, near Dairy Queen in the South End.

Location of 253 Selby St lot

That lot's been vacant for as long as I can remember (anyone?). But the City has approved an application for building a 3-storey development with commercial spaces on the ground floor and two floors of residential townhomes above.

It looks like the WORKspaces downstairs will be connected/available to the LIVEspaces above, and that each unit will total around 1550 sq ft, including its commercial space. However, I'm not certain of my interpretation of the report.

Here's an image from the proposal:

253 Victoria Rd townhomes proposed design

I look forward to seeing these in place. I hope to learn all about the development so that I can help someone to make an informed purchase as they help to transform this area!
