GWL Realty Advisors Inc., on behalf of the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation, is issuing a Request for Qualifications for master planning and related design services to support the long-term development of Royal Bay, a 419-acre parcel of waterfront land on Vancouver Island. Royal Bay is one of the largest contiguous tracts of undeveloped residential land in the Greater Victoria area and likely the only immediately developable land adjacent to the ocean.   The predominant land uses will include single family and multi-family homes with some supportive, village-oriented retail and commercial uses as well as recreational features such as waterfront parks and trails. The successful candidate or team will have a broad range of experience in master planning communities with a large waterfront component.   Candidates may include representatives from architecture, land use planning, urban design, and related disciplines.

Scope of Services:

The master planner will be expected to take advantage of this uniquely located site and understand its complexities and the underlying opportunities. The task is to bring new ideas and vision to improve and evolve a previously created master plan. The objective for the master plan is to be the framework for developing a new community that will be considered a success on various levels including livability, urban design, and environmental standards,.
