Royal Bay Built: June

Royal Bay Built is your monthly update about what’s being built in this beautiful seaside community. Projects large to small, we’ll cover them all! During the month of June, here’s what the team at Royal Bay accomplished while following the guidance of Provincial health officials.


Land Development: A new Little Library

Royal Bay’s first little library has popped up! Little libraries create the space for neighbours to come together, chat, and share books. “Leave a book, take a book”, you can find the library in the plaza at Caspian and Dunlin.

Did you know that the Capital Region has over 300 little libraries? The most in Canada! Designed for our seaside community, this little guy boasts solar lights and is wind and water-resistant.

Single Family

If you haven’t been out to our new HomeStore location, we’ve made it very easy to find by following the signs from Latoria Boulevard to 300 Caspian Drive.

Upon arriving, you will be greeted by Area Sales Managers Tanya Zakkour (Realtor with Engel Volkers) and Brendan Wilkinson (Realtor with 460 Realty).  Working together, they can assist in getting you everything you need to make an informed decision about the community, the various home designs and what’s coming next from GableCraft Homes.

Since GableCraft has so many homes at various stages of construction, Tanya and Brendan are able to throw on the hard hats and tour potential clients thought a variety of homes to demonstrate various options. It is a great opportunity for people to check out specific finishing packages, colour, etc., before making their final decisions.  With pricing starting from the upper $600,000’s and with a number of homes completing within the next 90 Days, your timing to explore GableCraft’s offerings is perfect.

Home Store hours are Monday to Thursday from Noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday, Sunday & Holidays from Noon to 5 p.m.


As the final landscaping at West Commons finishes and the final purchasers are moving in, we feel a lot of pride.  West Commons is a great development and we are very pleased to have created amazing homes and for a wonderful group of new homeowners, and now neighbours.

With the newest offering at Compass, it’s become very clear that people have noticed the quality of our building as well as the designs we have developed.  With the development now over 50% completed, we are off to an amazing start.  Designs offering two or three bedrooms with flex rooms and classic three bedrooms, are capturing the attention of so many people wanting to live close by this beautiful seaside community of Royal Bay.

Tanya and Brendan are ready to tour you through, anytime.  Reach out at your convenience for sharply priced town homes starting in the upper $400,000’s.

Rezoning of Latoria South

The long-awaited rezoning of South Latoria is now in its final stages of approval with the City of Colwood.  The approval of Latoria South will open the door to new parks and pathways, more bike routes, a grocery store, neighbourhood shops and services, and a future elementary school.

The plan for Latoria South has been shaped by many years of direct community consultation and City land use policy, including the City of Colwood Official Community Plan. Latoria South will contain two distinct but inter-related neighbourhoods – The Quarry and The Commons. Stay tuned as the application is considered by the City of Colwood through July.

Thanks for staying up to date on the goings-on in your community. Stay tuned to Tideline for another edition of Royal Bay Built, available in August!
