Downtown West

Victoria's Downtown West expansion area is envisioned as an extension of the current downtown through phased development to diversify housing and expand and enhance Victoria's local economy. Nestled along the Carver Park Reserve, the expansion area will incorporate the small-town charm of downtown Victoria while highlighting natural elements of the surrounding area.
