Dockside Green, the largest development in Victoria’s history, involves the reclamation and redevelopment of 15 acres of formerly industrial waterfront property. The project includes commercial, residential, live/work and light-industrial uses. The project is a global showcase for large-scale integrated sustainable development as one of the first developments to be awarded the LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) Platinum rating.

The site is oriented around a greenway running parallel to the coast with a village plaza providing a focal point at the western edge of the development. Mixed-use residential towers to the west reach up to ten stories while the majority of development is three to 10 stories tall. Waste resulting from one use will provide the nutrients for other uses.From the project’s inception our team recognized the unique opportunity the development represented, working with all stakeholder groups to create an exciting new community. The team’s vision was a Dockside neighborhood that creates economic opportunities while promoting environmental responsibility and healthy, vigorous and dynamic urban living. The Dockside Green Development was recently selected as a model “Climate Positive Development” by the Clinton Climate Initiative, setting a compelling environmental and economic example for cities to follow.
