Musqueam band breaks ground on 1,250 home development near UBC
The Musqueam First Nation plans to include a small-scale Stanley Park as part of a massive residential and retail project on their land near the UBC Endowment Lands.
The band unveiled their plans and broke ground Thursday on the lands that will eventually be home to an estimated 2,500 people.
Twenty-one acres will be converted to 1,250 homes in 18-storey condo towers and a 12-storey rental apartment. There will also be a mix of four- to six-storey townhomes, including multi-family dwellings and some subsidized units.
