Commercial Renovation

Hillside Mall Redevelopment

This multi-phase renovation, redevelopment and seismic upgrade of Hillside Mall rejuvenated and expanded the existing facility. 

The reinvention of the Hillside Mall began in October 2009 with Phase 1 – a 55,000 sq ft addition. This created space for 30 new tenants and provided a new and upgraded home for existing tenants.

Phase 2 started in May 2011 with a complete renovation and redevelopment of the original 120,000 sq ft shopping centre, which included the addition of skylights over the walkways to make use of natural light.

In October 2012, Phase 3 began and saw the addition of a new 120,000 sq ft Target store to replace the smaller single-storey Zellers space. The completed mall now has over 60 retailers, offers a variety of shops and services and a bright, spacious food court.

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.
