Winners of the Victoria Real Estate Board’s 24th annual Commercial Building Awards have been announced with a number of West Shore properties receiving honours.

Excellence awards were awarded to the new View Royal public safety building at 333 Island Hwy., under the category of community, and 4 Mile Estates at 241 Island Hwy. in the multi-family townhome category.

Merit awards went to the new District of Highlands Community Hall at 729 Finlayson Arm Rd. (community) and the Station Street Apartments, 2885 Jacklin Rd. (apartment – new construction).

Judges selected from various disciplines within the industry visit each eligible project to examine the overall exterior design and how it fits into the surrounding area.

Among the aspects of the project they consider are its environmental sensitivity, architecture, how it compliments the surrounding neighbourhood, whether it is aesthetically pleasing, the level of finishing and whether it answers a specific development need within the community.

Award categories are developed each year based on nominations received.

For 22 years the VREB Commercial Division’s Annual Commercial Building Awards competition has been dedicated to the advancement of excellence in commercial property development throughout the Greater Victoria area.
