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

The Heritage Houses at Capital Park

As part of the Capital Park development, these heritage designated houses were relocated to form a grouping at the corner of Government and Michigan Streets. The houses had been previously used by the Provincial Government.

Following relocation, the interiors of the houses were dismantled for seismic upgrading and the installation of sprinklers, ventilation, and other building systems. The conversion of the buildings to rental accommodation was achieved with only minor changes to the room layouts, and almost no exterior alterations. Full basements were constructed, with brick exterior finishes.

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.
