In the growing Royal Bay area of Colwood, Latoria Boulevard is a main thoroughfare from Veterans Memorial Parkway to Metchosin Road.

For the next five weeks or so, frontage improvements along Latoria between Dunlin Road and Ryder Hesjedal Way (near the Metchosin Road end of Latoria) will cause some traffic delays between 7 am and 5 pm, March 21 through the end of April.

The neighbourhood includes many new homes, housing construction projects, and the large Royal Bay Secondary School. Commercial development is in various stages on the south side of Latoria at Metchosin Road including the future west shore long-term care facility set to open in 2027.
