Heritage store in Saanich likely to move

Saanich council is expected to approve a bylaw to rehabilitate and relocate the Craigflower Bridge Store

Saanich council is expected to approve a bylaw to rehabilitate and relocate the Craigflower Bridge Store, also known as Brookman’s Grocery, on Monday night.

The heritage building, currently at 998 Gorge Rd. W, is slated to move elsewhere on the large property as part of the project to build an independent supportive living senior’s residence and community care facility at 994  and 998 Gorge Rd. W.

The plan includes rehabilitation and reuse of the old store as a community commercial destination.

The site will become a four-storey, 144-unit seniors complex.
