Hillside Centre Redevelopment
Client: Hillside Centre Holdings Inc.
Prime Consultant: MMC International Architects
Location: Victoria, BC
Completion: March 2014
The three-phase project was a structural upgrade, extensive renovation and expansion and demolition and new construction to an occupied commercial retail centre.
The work consisted of updates to the existing façade and 503,870 sq. ft. of expanded interior space, including a two-storey addition that more than doubled occupancy within the mall. The interior renovations included an expanded food court with architectural and structural glulam and steel members. The exterior scope included stone veneer, glazing, aluminum paneling, exposed wood soffits and landscaping throughout to complement each other. The parking lot was redesigned to accommodate the expansion, and also included green initiatives to effectively manage pollutants and prevent them from flowing into nearby water sources. A ramp to new roof parking located above operating tenant spaces was also constructed.
