Bridgeman's Bistro

Mill Bay Marina

Location: Mill Bay

This development on the shores of Mill Bay, BC, is located on the site of the former Mill Bay Marina boatyard. The Marina, heavily damaged in 2010, has been replaced with a new modern Marina that can accommodate up to 98 boats of all shapes and sizes, as well as a 50-foot yacht. There is also a new building designed by Joe Newell Architect that houses the marina's offices and washroom facilities, a cafe/bistro, and a marine store.

The townhouse project will have 14 upscale townhouses to be built by Cadillac Homes, with water views and spacious open plan interiors. The exteriors will be finished with the same durable cedar cladding and steel siding that clads the Marina building. More details on the townhouses here: Waterfront @ Mill Bay

Bridgemans Bistro is situated in the Pier building at the Marina. The 50 seat bistro-style restaurant takes motifs and references from the bridge construction profession, including artifacts and fragments from Vancouver Island's history of heavy industry and resource extraction, to create a tribute to the bridgemen who helped build the island's infrastructure.

The Bistro opened to coincide with the 2013 Regatta at the Brentwood Bay College, next door.
