Commercial – Retail


Kirby’s Source For Sports


Kirby’s Source for Sports is a locally owned company that has operated as a mainstay institution in the Victoria sports community for years. The new store is an eye-catching, impressive and aesthetically pleasing building located in a mixed commercial, industrial and residential corner that has not seen redevelopment for years. A unique roof design, an energizing colour palate, expansive windows and the use of natural cladding materials make this new commercial building a great example of how a thoughtfully designed structure can revitalize the atmosphere of a somewhat unassuming location. An interesting, welcoming and community minded streetscape is achieved by the unique outside sports court which is accessible for customers and ample parking is located at the rear of the building.

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.
