Purpose-Built Rental Housing
Rethinking the Rental Experience
1805-11 Feltham is proposed as the future home to TELUS Living—a mixed-use purpose-built rental concept that is fundamentally rethinking rental living potential.
Looking to celebrate the rental experience, TELUS Living will provide high quality, refreshed rental housing to the Gordon Head area, with a commitment to enhance and invest in the existing community fabric.
Today, 1805 Feltham Road is home to the building that serves TELUS customers with things like high-speed internet and other cellular and landline services. If you're a TELUS customer within this area, your service either comes from or runs through this building.
With changes in technology over time, TELUS no longer requires the larger infrastructure footprints that they've required in the past, which presented the opportunity to still offer cutting edge technology, but also address other community needs, like the need for rental housing.
The subject site at 1805-11 Feltham Road is divided by a pedestrian pathway that runs north/south between the two parcels of land, providing an important connection for the community.
We looked to prioritize this pedestrian pathway throughout the proposed design, ensuring to maintain a safe and welcoming experience for the community.
The proposed development demonstrates a stepped design to mimic the rhythm of the neighbourhood grain while creating 'pocket parks' for the future residents.
The approach illustrated here shows how the proposal was designed to respond to the neighbourhood, motivated by creating something site-specific that fits.
The Housing Strategy provides clear direction on how Saanich plans to contribute to improving housing opportunities and outcomes and address the urgent need to increase housing supply, diversity and affordability.
This need for rental housing is further supported in the following data.
Telus Living is a mixed-use purpose-built rental concept that is looking to reimagine the rental living experience, with high quality rental housing.
These homes will be designed with two key audiences in mind—established millennials and rightsizers who are seeking the freedom that leasing offers, without the burdens of homeownership.
We're committed to being good neighbours and having an open, honest dialogue in the communities where we do our work.
As our proposal moves through various phases of the development process, we aim to keep community members informed in order to build trust and establish a shared vision for the project.
