Cushman & Wakefield AVP Adam Frizzell tells us more about the new Eagle Creek Village mixed-use development in View Royal (100k SF of retail, 76k SF of office, 60 market rental units, then market residential product). Adam, who's involved in leasing efforts, says the project is a lesson in location. ECV is strategically situated at the gateway to the western communities (Langford, Colwood, Metchosin, and Sooke).
The weather is always beautiful in renderings. These bedroom communities of Victoria generate large volumes of vehicular traffic that are funneled right past ECV on Highway 1. The area around Victoria General Hospital has been underserviced in retail for years, which Adam says has been a pillar of its sales pitches. And anchor tenants Quality Foods, Forbes Pharmacy, and Cascadia Liquor Store gives the project a good foundation to build upon. “The quality of our anchors allows us to be more selective in our leasing program,” he says.
