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

The Paragon Building


This brand new Class A, three storey mixed-use building, is targeted for LEED Gold certification. The concept in its design, was to shift the centre from a suburban strip mall into a small scale urban plaza and to set the stage as a landmark building in the Shelbourne Corridor, as a standard for future development in the area. The building brings retail storefront to the street with quality commercial space above, while sidewalk improvements along Cedar Hill Cross Road enhance the pedestrian experience and are visually appealing for passersby. Building features include a high speed elevator, floor to ceiling and functional windows, seismic construction, showers, secure bike storage and a green roof. This project required site remediation for the replacement of the former dry-cleaning facility.

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.
