If you live in View Royal or work nearby at Victoria General Hospital, you’ve probably heard the buzz about this exciting new development. If you haven’t, Eagle Creek Village is a $100 million mixed-use development that will soon be under construction at the intersection of Helmcken Road and Watkiss Road. The project will change the area by bringing services and amenities where they currently lack. This includes retail stores, residential units, commercial office space and a 3 acre park.
Eagle Creek Village is a true turning point for View Royal. There is a lot of growth in the region and this location is at the gateway of it all. Thousands of vehicles pass by everyday. Three thousand people work at VGH. These folks need somewhere to go – to stop – to meet – and to live!
And so, the vision for Eagle Creek Village is a simple one: Create “a community within a community” and provide services where they are most needed so that people can shop, live and work in close proximity. Eagle Creek Village promises to be an attractive destination with a west coast look and feel – an inviting place that is in-scale with its surroundings.
Soon, everyone who lives, visits or works nearby will benefit from new places to grab a coffee, run a few errands, do your groceries, see your massage therapist, or drop your child off at daycare (Yes, a daycare is planned). You’ll even be able to live right here, via new condominium homes or within a well-appointed rental complex. Talk about convenience.
Eagle Creek Village is a project of Omicron Development Inc. Have a listen to what Omicron CEO Bill Tucker had to say about the project.
