This amenity-rich ocean community features diverse home solutions, restaurants, entertainment, nature, schools and more.
The Royal Bay site plan is designed for those seeking a dream staycation, to settle down with family, or an empty nest, and make the most of our west coast paradise.
Days here are infused with driftwood beaches, sunny walking trails, meandering biking paths and an abundance of urban amenities just minutes away.
Site Plan Drawings & Land Use Map
From site plan drawings to our land use map, we are committed to creating an inclusive experience for our residents-to-be. See the timeline below for more on where we’re at, and what’s in the works.
The South Latoria portion of the development is in the works, with rezoning ensuring the continued development of Single-Family Homes, Multi-Family Homes as well as Commercial development.
A shopping centre and elementary school are planned, with further development of the Commons to include single family homes and townhouses, shops, transit exchange, main street, grocery store and signalized intersection planned.
The development will also become the new site for the Royal BC Museum Research & Collections Facility, to hold collections that include birds and mammals, botany, fish, entomology, history, paleontology and modern history. There will also be a research department, with additional research labs and dedicated learning spaces.
The future looks bright! Additional commercial, retail, multifamily, single family and mixed-use homes planned, with roadways and allocated plots of land to be determined for future needs.
What to Expect
There are homes here for all ages seeking west coast adventures and easy access to Victoria, BC. Among the developments in store, Royal Bay land use plans will:
