Squamish is booming with new single family, townhome and condo developments. Here are the current developments to watch.
Squamish is seeing an explosion of new development and the timing couldn’t be better. With a surge of young couples, families and professionals moving to Squamish- and with current housing inventory unable to meet the demand- the new houses, townhomes and condos are a welcomed addition to the town. Over the last 10 years Squamish has seen new residential developments such as Eaglewind, Aqua and the Artisan downtown. Arbourwoods and Elements have revitalized the Northyards area and Skyridge, Alpenlofts and The Galleries have seen the Tantalus area of Squamish boom. New development in Squamish is continuing to sky-rocket. Here is a list of the current projects underway and on the books.
Newport Landing is urban living inspired by nature. The development offers 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes with tasteful features and functionality. Newport Landing is within walking distance to downtown Squamish and is selling out fast! **Update** SOLD OUT (11/3/15)
Abby Lane is currently selling and features 3 bedroom homes nestled in a friendly river-side neighbourhood in Central Squamish. The spacious floorplans and stunning design give ample space and functionality; the development is located in close proximity to downtown Squamish, schools, golf and shopping.
Located in downtown Squamish Parkhouse Condominiums are surrounded by nature with breathtaking views and close to everything!

The 20 acre neighbourhood is slated to have a central park, walking trails, and potentially a primary school and childcare facility.
Squamish Oceanfront Community has been over a decade in the making and is now closer than ever to becoming a reality. The development would see a vibrant, innovative, sustainable and world-class work-learn-play community located right in the heart of downtown Squamish. With a blend of residential and commercial this projected neighbourhood would completely re-shape downtown Squamish.
Crumpit Woods is currently selling offering full-size single family lots situated amongst towering mountains and forest playgrounds. Phase two is over 95% sold with only one lot remaining.
