Having been in the planning and development stages since 2008, the Harbourside Waterfront Real Estate Development has been formally approved and is moving forward officially during the next 10-15 years. After a slight setback waiting to get approval to remove an Eagles nest from the grounds, it’s now full steam ahead. This new waterfront mixed use community will have retail and commercial space and offices, condos for sale and apartments for rent, as well as garden spaces and an overall feel somewhat like the Shipyards area of Lower Lonsdale.
Located just West of the Burrard Yacht Club and South of the North Shore Automall, over time the real estate development will turn into a bustling and vibrant community thanks to the developers at Concert Properties, who envision the community to be cutting edge in terms of green technology usage and smart home systems as well as minimizing green house gas emissions. The North Shore is very focused on sustainability and this is another great example.
