Westbank’s newest development will offer dazzling oceanfront views, luxury finishings and amazing amenities and public spaces
Nestled in West Vancouver and surrounded by the waters of Howe Sound and B.C.’s majestic coastal mountains, Horseshoe Bay is truly captivating to locals and tourists alike.
“There is really not a lot of oceanfront land available for redevelopment, and Horseshoe Bay West Vancouver is the first multi-family project in the bay that offers real waterfront living,” says Ben Amzaleg, Westbank sales manager. “There has been a shortage of housing options for those who live in West Vancouver and want to downsize and stay in the community. Westbank is offering a solution that hasn’t been readily available.”
Designed by award-winning Merrick Architecture, this sophisticated collection of 158 West Coast-inspired residences – comprising one-, two- and three-bedroom condos, five penthouses and a few townhomes – will epitomize contemporary elegance from each of its six uniquely different buildings.
Framed by a wall of windows with resort-style views of the shoreline and sailboats in the water below, the homes will be showcased by 10-foot ceilings (17-foot ceilings in the penthouses), brushed oak floors, top of the line Miele appliance package, travertine gas fireplaces and an extensive use of natural stone throughout. The expansive outdoor living will feature generous-sized patios – some equipped with outdoor kitchens and hot tubs.
“This is the first time in North America that Miele professional series gas ranges will be in a multi-family building,” says Amzaleg.
Besides its picturesque location, Horseshoe Bay West Vancouver will be LEED certified and amenity rich, including a European-inspired cobbled stoned piazza with public art and green common areas.
“Built like a shoe-shaped piazza in Portifino, Italy, the piazza will foster a strong sense of community and connectivity, where people who live here will really feel a sense of belonging, where neighbours know each other,” he adds. “In addition, the entire ground floor of the first building will be scattered with retail and coffee shops.”
Besides its charming village featuring unique gift shops, coffee houses and seafood restaurants, Horseshoe Bay’s Whytecliff Park is a favourite for its tranquil, rocky coastline, which serves as a sanctuary for hundreds of marine animals.
For boat enthusiasts, Westbank will offer its residents a marina lifestyle. The jewel in the project will be Paul Merrick’s boat house with its soaring parabolic arches. The boat house will be home to a top-end Corsair 25 powerboat by Chris-Craft that will be available for pleasure cruise bookings by the residents of the project.
For 25 years, Westbank has been synonymous with design innovation and for being a leader in sustainability and often exceeds LEED Gold standards.
“The homes will have a very unique and environmentally friendly heating and cooling geo-thermal system, where we will draw water from the ocean to heat and cool the homes,” adds Amzaleg.
With exceptional finishes, an incomparable location, and world-class views on West Vancouver's waterfront, Horseshoe Bay West Vancouver is sure to become an iconic landmark.
