Squamish Continues to Boom

Though Squamish real estate has been trending up for years, the trend seems set to continue indefinitely. According to Craig Doherty, a Howe Sound real estate expert, “There is no slowdown in sight for this adventure paradise, as there are so many major projects on the go that will offer even more lifestyle options, more jobs, infrastructure and adventure options.” A few to watch for include Oceanfront Squamish, a community with 2,500 new homes, a Capilano University campus and an 11-acre oceanfront park; the $1.6-billion Woodfibre LNG plant, set to start construction in 2023; and an investment of $50-million from the District of Squamish in local infrastructure and facilities, including transportation and climate-action support.
