An Iconic Architectural Landmark

A centre of activity, creativity and innovation in the heart of Victoria’s downtown and Inner Harbour.

Downtown Victoria


Mixed Use Development


In Development

Located at 767 Douglas Street, TELUS Ocean will seize on a rare opportunity to create a new centre of gravity, where the historic meets the emergent.

TELUS Ocean will become the major new business and innovation centre that will significantly contribute to Victoria’s economic strength, culture and social vitality while alleviating pressure for additional downtown office space.

Following extensive community engagement and feedback, TELUS Ocean has been approved. For more information throughout the construction process, please visit
