Saanich, BC

Luther Court Society

2016 – Ongoing

M’akola Development Services (MDS) is working with Luther Court Society (LCS) and the Lutheran Church of the Cross (LCC) to develop a new mixed-use development comprised of affordable, independent units for seniors and students, with social and healthcare spaces on the ground floor. As the development process proceeds, other partnerships will be further explored, including a partnership with Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA).

The proposed project is located in Saanich, BC, in a residential community outside the core of Victoria. The development will provide 82 new studio and one-bedroom units in a four-storey building. Community amenities will include a common kitchen, student lounge, shared spaces and a primary health care centre on the ground floor. The proposed development will be wood framed, with surface, underbuilding, and underground parking.
MDS is responsible for supporting all municipal approval processes, including: rezoning, subdivision if required, the development and building permit process, etc. MDS is responsible for procurement of the design team. MDS will also explore opportunities to leverage provincial and federal funding.
