Sooke Council gave the nod of approval for a development permit and development variance permit at 2110 and 2120 Church Road (Pdf), for a low-rise apartment block at the Knox Centre, located on Church at Wadams Way.
This address will eventually house an apartment-and-commercial-use building that will be 15 meters high, fronting on to both Wadams Way and Church Road.
It will include the following uses:
- 42 residential rental units
- 57.6 square meter (620 ft2) commercial unit
- 69.7 square meter (750 ft2) café space
- 57.5 square meter (619 ft2) indoor amenity space for residents of the building
- indoor bicycle storage and surface parking
There will be one single access point, which will be from Church Road.
The development permit was issued allowing the construction of a mixed use commercial/residential building located on 2110 and 2120 Church Road(at Wadams Way). The variance was also granted to approve a set-back reduction from 2m to 0m for for the existing Knox Church building located at 2110 Church Road.
While the building requires 41 parking spaces, a total of 47 surface parking spaces will be provided. In addition, the Knox Church will provide church parking for another 15 vehicles. There are also plans for long-term bicycle parking facilities, with an indoor storage area that will accommodate 52 bicycles. Outdoor bicycle racks will also be provided, and will be located near the building’s main entrance.

Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
