10 kilometres west of Victoria’s downtown core is a residential community with a rich heritage. Colwood is proud of its historic landmarks such as Hatley Castle and Fisgard Lighthouse. One of the fastest growing regions in the CRD, Colwood boasts many new developments, both housing and retail expansions.
Esquimalt sits just west of Victoria across the big blue (Johnson St) bridge. The naval base CFB Esquimalt and the Esquimalt Graving Dock are both located here. Esquimalts’ proximity to Victoria is attractive to those working in the city, and recent infill development has boosted available housing. High quality harbour view condominiums have led the resurgence in housing in this municipality.
Langford, also located on the west shore, has grown more rapidly than most municipalities in recent years, because of a combination of economical property values and better road and transit access to Victoria. Residential and retail developments have mushroomed due to a focused effort to enhance transportation routes and promote responsible growth.
Sitting just east of and adjacent to Victoria, this up-scale, historic and beloved community is considered highly desirable. The University of Victoria sits on the borders of Oak Bay and Saanich, and some of North America’s most exclusive residences can be found in the Uplands neighborhood of Oak Bay.
Just a quick trip north about 30 kilometres from Victoria on the Pat Bay Highway you will find this picturesque seaside town. “Sidney by the Sea”, located on the eastern shore of the Saanich Peninsula, is pedestrian friendly and known for its many bookstores.
This centrally located municipality is bordered by Esquimalt, Colwood, Langford, Highlands, and Saanich.Victoria General Hospital, the largest medical facility in the CRD, is located in the largely residential community. Housing in view Royal includes condominium, townhome, and single family residences in a wide range of prices.
