The shoring and excavation phases are now well underway for the iconic Horseshoe Bay by Westbank. This mixed-use project is designed by Merrick Architecture and will transform West Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay.

What was previously a surface parking lot serving the Sewell’s Marina will be transformed into a development containing 159 residential units, 13,700 square feet of commercial space within six buildings, and 493 underground parking stalls. The residential units will include a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units spread across five villas: Oceanfront, Bayview, Cherry Blossom, Ocean Pavilion, and Forest. The sixth building is the Horseshoe Bay’s Boat House which will include a gathering hall and a residential lounge upstairs.

The project also includes several Community Amenity Contributions, including cash contributions for community centre improvements and affordable housing. Public space improvements will include 50% of the project dedicated to space open to the public, the creation of a boardwalk, and a $1,000,000 park improvement fund. The development will also provide kayak and paddleboard storage for community members.
