Hudson Place Two

The final phase of the Hudson District, a mixed-use commercial and residential tower offering 15,000 sf of retail space along Herald, Blanshard and Fisgard Street

The residential portion of the building will contain 245 residential units with a diverse mix of unit types and sizes including studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites. The style and character of this building will continue to attract a range of professional singles, couples, and families.

Townline has secured a partnership with CMHC through the CMHC Rental Construction Financing Initiative to fund the project as a rental building. This would secure a minimum of 20% of the units as Affordable Rental units for a term of 16 years. This means 49 units would be provided at a rate of 10% below market as per CMHC funding requirements.

History of Hudson District

In 2004 Townline acquired the large downtown site once home to Hudson Bay department store. To date, Townline has completed a number of milestones of this multi-phased project. This includes the renovation of The Hudson in 2010 with 152 market condos and the completion of three purpose-built rental buildings since 2014, bringing a total of 404 market rentals to Downtown Victoria. Most recently, the Vancouver based company started construction of Hudson Place One- 176 market condo units – and is on track for completion and occupancy this summer.
