Atrium Building | 7-storeys | Office, commercial
Return to the Construction Projects list.
The Atrium Building covers a large chunk of a city block bounded by Blanshard, Johnson and Yates streets, and the Telus Building to the east.
The design features a glass atrium that is intended to be a public space during normal business hours and can be adapted to serve as a music venue in the evenings. Ground floor commercial units will envelope the north, south and west sides of the building. Materials include fine grained concrete running in bands horizontally across the facade and recycled bronze/copper running vertically.
Construction began in July 2008.

The I ❤ Downtown Victoria on Facebook worldwide HQ will be moving a substantial portion of our considerable North American operations to the Atrium later this month.
We'll be test-driving a unit or two at REGUS for at least a few weeks, to see how the upper-end lives. :D
The only hold-up right now is while engineers see if they have enough bandwidth coming into the building to support us, and BCF. We don't want to be responsible for knocking the fleet monitoring infrastructure offline, while someone is having sex on the bridge of the Northern Expedition right as it heads for Gil Island.

So soon we'll need an office larger than the CRD building.

Regus is having a heck of a time finding occupants for their offices at the Atrium. I remember that before we leased our current office in Saanich our office mates (who we shared our previous office with) looked at Regus' offerings before leasing their own space elsewhere. That must have been back in late 2010 or early 2011.
