The Provincial Capital Commission owns a number of commercial properties in downtown Victoria, some of which may have retail/commercial space available. The PCC’s St. Ann’s Academy is a popular wedding and event venue and numerous festivals are held each year on PCC-owned parking lot space at both Ship Point and Enterprise Wharf.
The Provincial Capital Commission operates St. Ann’s Academy National Historic Site as a service to the public. Both the historic chapel (built 1858) and auditorium (built 1910) have been painstakingly restored and are popular sites for weddings, concerts and lectures. Some areas of the beautiful grounds are also available for public or private events. For rental information, visit the site at 835 Humboldt Street or visit www.stannsacademy.com or call 250-953-8829.
Prime storefront retail space for lease in the historic Crystal Garden. Street level fronting Douglas Street near the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum and Parliament Buildings. Contact the PCC at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-953-8802. For additional information on available units, click here.
The PCC is currently not considering applications for licensing street-vendor kiosks for seasonal business (May to October 31) on our Inner Harbour properties.
However, both the City of Victoria (http://www.victoria.ca/EN/main/city/bylaw-enforcement/street-vendors.html) and Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (http://www.victoriaharbour.org/f_licensee.php) offer street-vendor licensing programs.
The PCC offers daily paid parking at three locations on the Inner Harbour, and monthly parking at two of them (1020 Wharf Street and 254 Belleville Street). To enquire about a monthly parking pass, call Robbins Parking at 250-382-4411.
