Organizers are expecting a larger than normal number of nominations for the 12th Annual Vancouver Island Real Estate Board Commercial Building Awards, set for April 4 at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.
Commercial, industrial and revenue-producing projects, including renovations, from the Malahat to Port Hardy are up for these awards, and must have been completed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018.
Nomination deadline is March 1.
There will be at least 11 commercial categories:
· Mixed-Use (commercial/residential)
· Seniors housing
· Community institutional
· Community recreational
· Commercial renovation/restoration
There will also be a Judges’ Choice Award for the best overall entry. Last year’s winner were the Twin Sails Buildings in Comox.
A select team of independent judges from the real estate industry will perform adjudication. Black Press is a Platinum Media Sponsor.
Tickets to the event, which is expected to be a sellout, are $125 plus tax, and are available at www.businessvexaminer.ca/events.
