New Homes

The biggest new home developers in BC (updated)

By REW Editor 2022-11-29

There’s no place like home, especially when that home is brand-spankin' new. British Columbia (and the Lower Mainland in particular) has expanded almost as much as the Star Wars franchise over the last decade and new homes might just be the new hope that the province needs. 

The question we need to get to the bottom of is simple: Who’s going to be building all these new homes? Sometimes the past can help us predict the future, so we’re here to guide you through BC’s biggest home developers historically. Here’s a quick look at the biggest new home developers in BC, including how many homes they’ve built, what they’re actively selling and their current proposed projects in BC.

A brief history of time.

Each of the developers above has been in business for decades, with some like Aquilini Development and Construction and Century Group being founded over 60 years ago. Here’s an overview of the year each company was founded.

That new home smell. 

 

The CHBA estimates that 25% of all homes purchased annually are newly built. While the resale market has cooled off, the new home sector continues to push forward. A look at the number of current proposed homes in BC confirms rising towers ahead, as many believe that we need to build our way out of the housing crisis. Or at least that building is a part of the solution. 

 

Put down roots.  

Where these new homes will be built is a crucial consideration for BC’s biggest developers, who often put incredible amounts of time into creating a neighbourhood where people want to live. Identifying up-and-coming neighbourhoods that buyers are excited to call home is a serious task. The numbers show that Central Surrey is the top area in the province by units planned, followed by Coquitlam. See the top five areas in the Lower Mainland by units planned here.
