Vancouver USA is about to start another mini-boom after a slight slowdown in large scale urban projects due to COVID-19 and the associated economic slowdown, things are looking up locally. These larger projects tend to cost $25-100 million each and that brings a lot of jobs, economic growth, and general prosperity to the region. This is nothing new as Vancouver has been on a bit of a boom for a fair number of years now.
Downtown has a large project about to break ground at the Academy site. Phase one will be two buildings of 5 and 6 floors totaling 140 apartment units. Phase two will be a larger single building platform with 6 floors and about 200 units.
The Waterfront should see the Broadstone project get going as site prep is already underway on Block 17. Not sure when the Timberhouse will start on block 3 but it is in the same general time window as Broadstone.
Terminal One has signed a new 50 year ground lease with a development partnership that should bring rise to a full two block mixed use project with two buildings and substantial public space. the buildings should rise around 5-7 floors and that project could easily get into the $60-70 million range perhaps even $100 million.
Of course all these construction related jobs will bring higher demand for local residential real estate and that means it should continue to be a runaway success for sellers.
