Le Sequoia on Watkiss

Le Sequoia on Watkiss is a mixed-use 44-unit rental building. There are two office spaces on the main level with a mix of bachelor, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments above. The style, colour and name of the building were inspired by the neighbouring forests. The rocky sloping site presented a challenge, but with creative design the project fits into the site well.

Historically speaking

The Commercial Building Awards were started in 1991 by a group of REALTORS® who were concerned that commercial development within the Greater Victoria area was not receiving the recognition it deserved.

The Commercial Building Awards competition is recognized among architects, builders and developers and the real estate community as a prestigious event dedicated to the advancement of excellence in construction and design. Because of its success, the Victoria Commercial Building Awards program is now being emulated by various real estate boards throughout BC and across Canada.

The Commercial Division of the Victoria Real Estate Board is dedicated to advancement in quality developments and to encouraging a better environment within our community and is proud to sponsor this annual competition.
