Victoria council has approved a new residential building, which will become the tallest building in the capital city.

The 25-storey Hudson One tower will be located on Herald Street, according the city.

It will have 176 units and a top deck roof on what will technically be a 26th floor.

Units will range in size from 435 square feet to over 1,000 and a retail space will be located on the main floor. 

A completion date is set for early 2020.

Townline, the developer behind the Hudson Place project, originally wanted to make the building 29 storeys, which would make it the tallest on the island. 

Nanaimo is currently home to the island’s tallest building at 27 storeys.
