The Quest – 2019 Revised Proposal
A revised multi—unit residential proposal for The Quest, at 2326 Oak Bay Avenue, has been submitted to Oak Bay municipality for consideration. The proposal is for a 4 storey, 14 unit condominium building with 14 underground parking stalls (each equipped with electric car chargers).
2326 Oak Bay is a single family home orphaned between two, 4 storey buildings. It is the last ‘missing tooth’ in a long line of condominium and rental buildings along the Avenue. As such, Oak Bay’s Official Community Plan has designated this site to be multi-unit residential. The Quest proposal is in response to this designation.
The Quest 2019 will retain the York House neighbours’ Garry Oak tree. Four underground parking stalls were removed and the east parkade wall was moved in to preserve sufficient root zone areas and make the tree viable for retention.
To support the tree’s health and mitigate further root loss, the root habitat will be raised to a higher productive state through irrigation and additional organic planting soils.
Additionally, 3 new Garry Oak trees will be planted in the southwest corner which will grow up and eventually replace the canopy of the larger Garry Oak as it ages out over time.
