Well, Mike K. and I dropped in for the gala reception, unfortunately within minutes of our arrival, we were called away on another matter. Nice atrium though.

From Craigslist:

Promote A Green Building (Aug and Sep) (downtown Victoria)
Date: 2010-07-28, 6:41PM PDT
Reply to: see below

The Green Team
Location: Victoria, BC
Duration: August 1 – September 30


Would people describe you as high energy?

Are environmental initiatives part of who you are?

Designed to help people take great vacations and exceed the highest standards of LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa will do both! We are looking to hire a couple of superheroes to help us engage with people and invite the public to check out our hotel combining incredible location, luxurious amenities with amazing green-building features.

We need two great people who can fulfill the following heroic list:
- outgoing and personable
- capture people's attention
- a capacity to learn quickly
- great attitude essential
- happy to spend 97.5% of the time with people and not chained to a desk
- interest in green building is a bonus [familiarity with LEED® is a super-bonus]
- assertive and willing to engage with the public & local businesses

Compensation: lucrative bonus per referral (plus $9/hr base). Earn up to $25 per hour with bonuses.
To be considered for this exciting opportunity, please send your CV and a cover letter detailing what you love about downtown Victoria to marketing@aviawest.com – and use "The Green Team" in the subject line of the e-mail.

We thank all applicants for their interest however, only those candidates selected for interviews will be contacted.


I'm not sure if that seems strange, or ingenious. The right candidate would make a good job of it. Alas, I doubt there are many good candidates out there willing to work for just 60 days on this type of a project.

Odd, that there's no mention of number of hours per day/ week expected. Is it 2 months of 16 hour days, or what?

I heard yesterday that Parkside is very close to securing an anchor tenant for its restaurant space. No details on who it might be, but I have it on fairly good authority that it will be a local owner-operator taking over the space (as opposed to a corporate franchise, e.g., earls, Joey's, etc.).

I was convinced that the money required for this space would put it out of reach for all but the corporate restaurants.

Fugger is back, I was wondering when that would happen.

So local owner? I would hope for something not too overpriced but it is a pretty nice spot...

It will be the fourth location (the others are in Quadra Village, Cook Street Village Food Court, and Dockside Green).

Things were said, mistakes taken and amends made...I think that we're all a little older and wiser because of it. :D

Another one bites the dust as Aviawest files for creditor protection

From the above article:

In a filing to the Supreme Court of British Columbia, chief financial officer Rob DiCastri said the company has been in default with some lenders for “several years.” Its financial statements indicate the company has $88-million in assets, but most of the line items are real estate that would need to be sold to be of any practical use. It has about $2.5-million in cash, equity and “other hard assets.”


Is this someone related to Victoria architect John Di Castri (the article may have misspelled Roberts name?). Just wondering.

A report from the monitor states that total unsold inventory held by Aviawest is valued at $80.1 million. That breaks down to $63.53 million in Parkside, which has a total residential value of $51.8 million for whole and fractional ownership units. Another $11.6 million is in commercial inventory.

A rock has shattered one of the large glass panels at the main entrance to the building. The entrance is blocked off while repairs are under way.

Aviawest has filed with the CCAA due to not being able to meet its financial obligations to creditors. This is not the same as filing for bankruptcy but is a measure to protect the organization from creditors.

Aviawest is restructuring and appears to have partnered with an organization calling itself Watermint Hotels & Resorts. The latter's properties appear to be the same as Aviawest's (except for Parkside, for one reason or another Parkside is not listed as a Watermint property), suggesting that Watermint is a brand new organization potentially created as a result of the restructuring to manage Aviawest's properties.
