Seaport West Shops & Residences


This project consisted of an infill mixed-use redevelopment of a former surface parking lot, including a full level of underground parking with dedicated garages and elevators for townhouses units above. There are 10 residential units – some two storey townhouse type and others single level walk-up apartments, all with street-friendly entrances and balconies or patios. There are two apartments on the back-side of the over-height commercial space. There is approximately 2,476 sq. ft. of commercial space, including extensive use of natural stone and wood on the exteriors, a cement-panel reveal wall system, street and lane way improvements along Seaport Place and a landmark lane in collaboration with the Town of Sidney. Green considerations included the redevelopment of a former parking lot which increased landscaped areas to replace asphalt surfaces. Dedicated parking and elevators to multi-level townhouse units supports “ageing-in-place” within the community.

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.
