Colwood has received a proposed development application from the Onni Group

Onni submits development proposal for Colwood Corners

Rusted rebar and rainwater pooled on incomplete development may soon be no more

A Colwood Corners’ facelift is getting closer

A development application with plans for the first phase of the former Capital City Centre project in Colwood’s downtown core has been submitted by the Onni Group.

The City of Colwood received plans and drawings for a 13,887-square-metre, mixed-use development with both commercial space and a 284 rental housing units.

The shutdown of the previously slated $1-billion project trumpeted by the now insolvent League Assets Corp., which called for development of a 26-storey tower among other aspects, left a fenced area adjacent to the London Drugs on Colwood Corners. For nearly three years exposed rebar has been rusting and rainwater has been pooling along the concrete foundation.

The more modest development proposed by Onni will be reviewed by staff and council to determine alignment with the City’s Official Community Plan.

Onni Group, which has offices in Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix and Mexico.
