Welcome to Midtown, Victoria’s newest neighborhood! Located in the heart of Victoria, this dynamic neighborhood is close to transit, parks, shopping, and more. Midtown balances urban living with stunning natural areas. It’s quickly growing into one of Victoria’s most vibrant and livable communities. In this post you’ll learn about the unique neighborhood of Midtown and all that it has to offer.

Enjoy an urban lifestyle while being steps away from nature 

Nestled between nature, shopping, dining, and transportation, Midtown combines an urban lifestyle with natural beauty. Conveniently located along the key commuter route of Douglas Street, Midtown is close to downtown. It’s also accessible to other parts of the city by bike, foot, or transit. Across the street you’ll find Mayfair mall, the city’s premier fashion destination. Nearby is the scenic Gorge and historic Selkirk waterway. From there you can cycle, take a stroll, paddle on the water, or enjoy a community festival. 

What’s great about Midtown is how it’s quickly emerging into a lively civic core. Mayfair mall is undergoing a transformation into a mixed-use urban village. The City of Victoria’s plans will see this neighborhood come alive with more public spaces, parks, and greenways. This exciting redevelopment will make Midtown a hub for culture, commerce, and creativity.
