During the 2010 Olympics, Squamish served as a beautiful drive-through, where athletes, officials and spectators fueled up with gas and coffee on their way up the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler.

With that unique and unprecedented global exposure, ‘locals’ got to work envisioning a new and different community, one that consumes you rather than you consuming it.

Paramount to this vision is the distinctive lure of the area’s year-round, beautiful and naturally invigorating surroundings.

Town planners recognized that the best way to enjoy that overwhelming natural beauty is to incorporate it into residents’ daily living.

Great examples of this include a number of residential developments from Target Homes, including Current, Abby Lane and the all-new BREEZE.

BREEZE is Squamish’s newest townhome community, featuring 60 Westcoast Contemporary-style 3-Bedroom townhomes designed with views to take advantage of the amazing scenery. There’s also 12 2-bedroom Loft Homes with 17-foot ceilings.

And it’s far from the only new development going on in the area.

Garibaldi at Squamish is a $2-billion (estimated) mega-project that would add 20,000 beds to the community in a size similar to Whistler Village.

Then there’s the proposed Great Wolf Lodge, a $300-million water park resort that would create more tourism jobs to the already explosive and key local economic driver.

Research and education is also receiving a boost with UBC’s Green Energy Research Centre expected to be up and running within two years. That will join the highly acclaimed Quest University, considered by many to be the best post-secondary institution in British Columbia. Not surprisingly, students from around the world are easily enticed to learn and live in Squamish.

Developers like Target Homes realize that Squamish currently lacks new residential options for locals and investors to purchase.

The recent announcement of the new 15 per cent foreign buyers tax by the BC government, which took effect on August 2, has already had consequences on the Greater Vancouver real estate market, but not in Squamish.

The new tax does not apply to Squamish, which makes it an even more attractive area for investors or adventurous, active British Columbians to buy a new home.



WHAT: 60 Westcoast Contemporary 3-bedroom townhomes featuring private rooftop sky lounges with mind-blowing views. And 12 2-bedroom Loft Homes with 17-foot ceilings.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 15. 10 to 5 p.m.

WHERE: 39971 Government Rd., Squamish
