Squamish has been enjoying a construction boom over the past decade, as it has grown to become a thriving suburb of Vancouver. But it’s more than just a beautiful commute, winding past ocean views and waterfalls. Squamish offers a wide range of recreational opportunities, including hiking and biking trails, rock climbing parks, kiteboarding and windsurfing, and wildlife. Only twenty years ago, the population was a little over 14,000, and it’s grown to about 20,000 today.
New housing subdivisions have sprung up to accommodate the growth, but the most noticeable development has been in medium-rise condos of 4 to 6 floors that line the streets in Squamish’s downtown core. And new commercial, shopping and dining complexes have been added to meet the growing needs.
As the Oceanfront Development at Newport Beach kicks into gear, there will be another 1,000 residential units, 400,000 square feet of commercial space and an Artisan village. Squamish has been scrambling to accommodate the labour force for all the construction.
August Jack Motor Inn offers excellent long term rental packages for construction contractors and development companies. Located right on main street Cleveland Avenue. The motel is bordered on three sides by municipal parks, and it’s a 5-minute walk to the waterfront. Shopping, restaurants and pubs are all within easy walking distance.
