Ashley Furniture

The previous building footprint of the Six Mile Furniture building was an L- shape. This layout did not provide a continuous street wall which is needed to add interest and help define the Western Gateway Corridor edge. The intent of the addition was to give the existing buildings a facelift by filling in the space between the L- shaped footprint, re-configure the parking, incorporate sensitive landscaping, upgrade the boulevard frontage and provide an opportunity to enhance the street experience through interesting contemporary architectural design. Green initiatives include the incorporation of architectural, mechanical, electrical and landscape environmental sustainability initiatives. Drought tolerant trees, shrubs and grass, rain water treatment, reflective roofing membrane to reduce heat, low E double pane windows, low VOC paints and adhesives, low flow plumbing fixtures, heat pumps, led hi bays, occupancy sensors, exterior lighting controlled by photocell and daylight sensors.

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.
