Crag X Indoor Climbing Centre

The Crag X Indoor Climbing Centre is a bold and significant investment in downtown Victoria that offers residents access to a world class urban climbing centre. To create an open interior space, this building was designed with 50’ perimeter insulated precast concrete wall panels. Story Construction’s crew had the challenging task of erecting and placing the 80,000 lb panels within inches of adjoining properties, all within the span of five days. The expansive glass storefront maximizes natural light for climbers and the building’s specialized mechanical systems are designed to ensure a fresh air environment, which can be a challenge for chalk filled indoor gyms. The interior climbing walls were imported from a specialized Bulgarian company and installed onsite.

This striking and dynamic building has led the way in the revitalization of the streetscape and culture of the Pandora corridor.

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.
