As the developer’s second of five projects in downtown Victoria’s Hudson district, The Hudson Mews addresses the area’s need for centrally located, purpose-built rental housing with over 120 rental units as well as over 8,000 sq ft of commercial space.
Throughout the design process, the developer utilized local consultants whose insight and knowledge of the city helped shape the look of the contemporary, urban edifice. The building itself consists of 12 storeys of concrete, enveloped on the exterior by classic architectural features which combine the use of vertical columns with granite and red brick cladding to provide a modern take on the area’s historic style and character.
During the course of construction, environmentally friendly wastewater diversion practices were implemented as a means to mitigate any negative environmental impacts. Now complete, the building features an energy efficient, on-demand boiler system, energy efficient common area lighting, and a residential recycling and waste program. On the 5th storey podium level, a green roof was installed and will allow for enhanced rainwater collection and filtration.
