New for 2020 29th Annual Commercial Building Awards Winners Presentation - Watch Now

Multi-family, new construction

35/39 Gorge Road

The Greater Victoria Housing Society and the Greater Victoria Rental Development Society partnered for construction of a 68-unit rental apartment building on the same property as five high end townhomes. A model of a self sustaining business plan, this location has both affordable and market rentals along with a home ownership module.

The four-storey rental building uses a blend of wood and synthetic materials which gives the project a clean, modern look and complements the surrounding neighbourhood and landscape.

The location was chosen in part for its proximity to downtown and access to parks and waterways.

This building is the second partnership for these two agencies; the first was Loreen Place at 40 Gorge Road. Both projects are changing the look of the neighbourhood with an updated approach to affordable and in–demand housing.

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.
