This 4-storey, wood-frame residential complex with a full level of underground parking was sited and designed to respond to a mature stand of Garry Oaks and a heritage school house. Centrally located in the Royal Oak neighbourhood of Saanich, the project is within walking distance of shopping, amenities, services and transportation options. The building provides a mix of 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 2 bedroom plus den units.
