Esquimalt’s Corvette Landing Will Add Much-Needed Housing For the “Missing Middle”

When the build begins on Corvette Landing in Esquimalt this fall, don't expect this 12-storey, 83-unit condo development to rise in a typical way.

Corvette Landing is a modular building whose condos will be pre-built offsite, shipped from a factory and assembled onsite. A big draw is the speed of build and cost effectiveness.

“It’s about providing market-affordable housing to the ‘missing middle,'” says Troy Grant of Edmonton-based Standing Stone Developments. “People with incomes from $60K to $140K who are caught in the middle between dedicated affordable housing and pricey condos.”
