We are proud and excited to announce that Oxford Properties Group and AIMCo’s Bow Valley Square revitalization project was the recipient of the 2012 TOBY® Award for best renovated building!
Every year the BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) of Canada awards program recognizes “excellence in the Canadian commercial real estate industry through its TOBY®, Earth, Pinnacle and Chairman’s awards”. “Now in its 28th year, the Outstanding Building of the Year “TOBY” Award is the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry, recognizing quality in buildings and awarding excellence in commercial building management”.
Completed by BKDI Architects in collaboration with B+H Architects, the Bow Valley Square revitalization is a comprehensive design scheme which includes a major renovation to the podium portion of this full block mixed-use development in the heart of Calgary’s Business District.
The revitalization includes new entry structures on the both the west and east façades and the development of new entry lobbies into three of the four on-site towers to improve the functional requirements of pedestrian access. The project refurbished the design and finishes of the entire interior spaces of the ground, plus 15 and plus 30 levels, retail levels including all floor, walls and ceiling components. The project also upgraded the food court and access to the in-house conference facilities. It is designed to achieve LEED® Silver Certification and features an innovative green roof component on the plus 30 level.
Congratulations Oxford Properties Group and AIMCo!
