A PLACE FOR CREATIVITY, CULTURE AND COMMERCE.

IN EVERY GREAT CITY, THERE IS A NEWSPAPER THAT EXPRESSES THE SOUL OF A PLACE—ITS ARTS, BUSINESS, PEOPLE AND LEGENDS. IN VICTORIA, A HUNDRED YEARS OF HISTORY ARE PRINTED DAILY IN BLACK INK BY THE VAST PRESSES WITHIN THE TIMES COLONIST BUILDING. AS THE NEWSPAPER INDUSTRY CHANGES, SO MUST THE BUILDING THAT WAS BUILT TO TELL THOSE STORIES.

The Victoria Press Building is transforming Midtown— creating a new vision for the stories of daily life in Victoria. No longer only a newspaper building, it is now a cultural and commercial hub of media, arts, entertainment, technology and education, all intersecting in a single thriving location where people will work, play and live.

In 2019, a new era of business, creativity, social life and prosperity begins. THE REVITALIZED VICTORIA PRESS BUILDING WILL MAKE HEADLINES, and will define this Midtown neighbourhood for the inspiring years ahead, as it has for a hundred years before.
