Victoria is now home to one of the first bike stores in Canada that focuses on cargo bikes and family cycling: Bishop's Family Cycles. And we've partnered with Bishop's and Urban Thrive to give away a Triobike Cargo Big electric bike - one of the best cargo bikes on the market.
We're doing this to draw attention to this great, new bike store and to help grow cargo bike culture in Victoria. Cargo bikes present a great opportunity for families to live a more happy, healthy, sustainable lifestyle, which is one of the goals of our car-free family townhouse project proposed at 2859 Richmond Rd.

Victoria is full of some incredible artists and we've recently worked with two of them to do something a little bit differently at our construction site at 937 Colville.
Instead of hanging Lapis Homes' graphics and banners on the site's security fencing, Kay Gallivan and Jess Kosichek created a piece of art that showcases local wildlife in a surreal and unexpected way.
We've printed the piece up and displayed it at our site for neighbours and Victorian's to experience and chat about as they walk by.
The book inspired our company's goals and vision, and we think its ideas are incredibly important in shaping the way Victoria is built.

Victoria's citified wrote up a little piece on early renderings of our proposal for 812 Craigflower.
It generated some discussion that helped us make some important changes -- including adding a coffee shop to the proposal.
