Howe Sound, British Columbia
As Lead Consultants, PWL Partnership worked with owners Concord Pacific Group, the Squamish Nation, and a comprehensive team of consultants to create an innovative development plan for this 1200 acre master planned community on the Sea to Sky corridor north of Vancouver, BC. When the site is fully developed, Porteau Cove will include a Village Centre with mixed residential, commercial, and community uses. These will include sensitively sited multi-family mid-rise buildings that take advantage of the topography, single family homes, and a range of amenities that will feature a school site, on-site sewage treatment, parks, viewpoints and trails.
Sensitive siting has resulted in the preservation of over 60% of the site in its natural state, including areas with old growth forest, creeks and wetlands. A comprehensive trail system preserves connections to the Howe Sound Crest Trail, Deeks Lake, and the waterfront, while providing a system of linkages within the development. Over 50 acres of parks and viewpoints will ensure that the public can easily access the spectacular views of Howe Sound and the surrounding mountains.
