Aura Townhouses

Nestled between green fields and picturesque valleys, the Aura Townhouses offer the
best of country “village” life combined with a modern, urban style. Three clusters of
five units back on to each other and create a house-like form that faces all directions.
A unique colour palette identifies the individual homes, and the unit clusters are
spun at different angles to create a random character. As all the parking is surface,
it was important to visually control the space through the use of carports which
cover over 50% of the stalls. This feature also creates a scale transition between
unit groups. The project is BUILT GREEN® to EnerGuide 80 standards and features
efficient gas fired hot water tanks, rain screen exterior wall systems, durable
hardiplank siding for easy-care maintenance, engineered wood truss roof system and
large double glazed ENERGY STAR® vinyl windows.

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.
