SODC Rezoning Report to Council May 5 2015


In October 2013, Matthews Southwest Developments and Bethel Lands Corporation were chosen as the developers of the Oceanfront Lands.  The District and SODC have signed the purchase and sale agreement with Matthews Southwest and Bethel Lands. Read this most recent news below.

At the nexus of land and water sits 59 acres of former industrial land, plus 44 adjacent acres of submerged water lots, owned by the Squamish Oceanfront Development Corporation (SODC), a wholly owned corporation of the District of Squamish. This land, extending from downtown Squamish, forms a peninsula fronting Howe Sound, the Mamquam Blind Channel and the Cattermole Slough. With its ability to drive economic revitalization and reconnect the community to the water, this land represents a profound redevelopment opportunity unparalleled anywhere in the region.
