Nine months ago a small number of senior executives from some of the major Industrial and Manufacturing companies on the West side of the Highway of the Saanich Peninsula started getting together. The basic objective being was to meet the need for an advocacy group that would promote the interests, concerns and necessary goals of the Manufacturing and Industrial businesses in Sidney and North Saanich. This group now has twelve member companies and is continuing to grow.
Harbour Digital Media recently moved into new office premises at #200 – 2612 Bridge St., Victoria, B.C – it became evident that within a several block radius, their existed a natural Industry grouping – very soon the “Rock Bay Design District” was born and by extension now includes the following Arts & Industry related companies and organizations:
- Rad Juli Designs (http://radjuli.com/)
- Christina Hilborne | Furniture Design & Maker (http://christinahilborne.com/)
Victoria doesn’t need to create a Design District, one already exists in Rock Bay. 🙂
