Developer pitches density in West Vancouver’s Eagle Harbour

A West Vancouver-based developer is planning a 67-unit, multi-family development in West Vancouver’s Eagle Harbour.

Sterling Pacific Developments has submitted a preliminary development application for a 4.45-acre site on Daffodil Drive, bordered by the CN Railway, Westport Road and Eagle Creek. Formwerks Architects are working on the project.

The property was previously approved to be subdivided into 10 large lots, before West Vancouver’s new official community plan was enacted in 2018.

The developer says the previously-approved subdivision plan “goes against virtually all aspects of the OCP. That is, the OCP clearly states that large expensive homes on large lots catering to the elite are not what West Vancouver needs or wants. Homes built in the “missing middle” market segment is what West Vancouver needs; homes that allow families and down-sizers to stay in West Vancouver.”

The new development, called Aquila, will include a mix of three and four bedroom homes in duplex and attached formats, ranging from 1,300 to 2,400 square feet. Approximately 30 per cent of the homes will be designed to accommodate one and two-bedroom suites. 

Prices are expected to be between $1.1-$1.9 million — far less than most properties in luxurious West Vancouver, but still a stretch for most working families.

A public information session will be held July 27, 2020 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at 5776 Marine Drive (outdoors at Thunderbird Marina).
