Conversion of a group of historic Chinatown buildings, connected by private interior passageways and courtyards, into entry-level condominiums has taken another step forward.
Victoria councillors on Thursday approved heritage-related permits for the Lee Cheong Alley building at 533-537 Fisgard St. and the Lum Sam Courtyard building at 534 Pandora Ave., both owned by local developer Chris Le Fevre.
Le Fevre is planning to keep ground-floor commercial at the Lee Cheong building. The rest of the site, including its small interior tenements, and the Lum Sam building will be converted into 25 condos, priced about $300,000.
