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


Urbanité is a mixed use four storey building that adds to the commercial vitality of its emerging neighborhood. Building materials including specialty cladding materials of composite concrete board and V-Line metal cladding were selected for longevity, aesthetics and low maintenance upkeep. An irrigation drip system in the landscaping and deck planters minimizes water consumption while maintaining green spaces.

Other environmental features include bike storage, an electric car charger, a MODO car share membership for every tenant and a central hot water tank which eliminates the need to operate 15 separate tanks.

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.
