The hotel is a part of Westridge Landing Centre, a mixed-use residential and commercial community that includes 68,000 square feet of retail and offices and 63 residential rental apartments.

The building features LED lighting throughout, high efficiency HVAC systems, low flush toilets and faucets, a micro irrigation watering system, low maintenance stucco and metal finishes, recycled content gypsum board and insulation and low VOC latex paint. Best practices were used for recycling and waste management during construction. The hotel participates in a Green Engage environmental impact program.

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.
