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

The Speed Street

The Speed Street – Brizo 19 design is driven by its context. The site is at the end of a
dead end street which was once residential but is now surrounded by service and
industrial developments. The design needed to provide a visual terminus for the street
and establish an appropriate relationship to the neighbouring properties. The solution
was to set the building at a 45 degree angle to the street and back the building into
the corner of its lot. The first three levels look out from the corner while the top two
floors face out on all sides and use the roof below as deck space. The building offers
lofts, condos and townhomes close to amenities and downtown.

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.
