All Astoria suites were sold within six weeks as a result of Concert’s award-winning marketing campaign.

Vancouver, BC, Canada – Concert Properties is pleased to announce it has been honoured with another prestigious industry accolade – the company received a Gold Award at the 2006 CARE (Construction Achievements and Renovations of Excellence) Awards of Vancouver Island for Best Overall Marketing Campaign for its Astoria development.

“We are very proud to receive this award from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association in Victoria,” said Rod Wilburn, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, Concert Properties Ltd. “With such a high calibre of all the entries, we are extremely pleased to have won top honours for our marketing campaign.”

Concert was a Silver Finalist in four award categories: Best Multi-Family/Mixed-Use Development, Best Sales Centre or Showroom, Best Overall Marketing Campaign and Best Customer Service.

With each endeavour, Concert is focused on people, innovative design, superior standards of construction, customer service and community values. “From the moment a potential purchaser walks through our door to long after they’ve settled into their new home, our entire team of professionals epitomizes our dedication to delivering only the best,” adds Wilburn.

The 164-suite Astoria – Concert’s first residential development in Victoria – is a mixed-use concrete tower with ground-level retail along Humboldt Street. All Astoria suites were sold within six weeks as a result of Concert’s award-winning marketing campaign.

The CARE Awards winners are selected by a panel of industry professionals using criteria such as architectural character, quality workmanship, creative use of space and energy efficiency. The winners were announced on September 23 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel.
