New Westminster's Maria Keary Cottages took the top honour at the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver's second annual Commercial Building Awards last week.

The 35-bed supportive housing facility at 305 Carnarvon St., received the Judges' Choice Award as the best commercial building in the area. Earlier in the evening (Sept. 29) at the Marriot Vancouver Pinnacle, it won the excellence award in the community facilities category.

Maria Keary Cottage is owned by the Westcoast Genesis Society. The architect was Eric Pattison of New Westminster with the general contractor being Colter Developments.

The Dockyards at Port Royal, a development on Salter Street in Queensborough, was one of three to be given merit awards in the rentals/affordable housing category.
