Built on the historic Gibsons Landing waterfront (Hello BC), the new world-class hotel, expanded marina and residences will meet the increased demand for waterfront residences and superior hotel accommodation in this popular coastal community.

Gibsons is the southernmost town on B.C.’s Sunshine Coast, a short 40-minute BC Ferry ride from West Vancouver. This picturesque village was founded in 1886 by pioneer settler George Gibsons, and  became renowned in the early seventies as the home of CBC television comedy-drama series The Beachcombers. A passenger ferry service to downtown Vancouver is in the works and the BC Govt. is currently researching the feasibility of a future link to the lower mainland.

Once dubbed the “West Coast Riviera” Gibsons has always been a popular tourist destination –  showcased by miles of beaches, kayaking, hiking, nearby golfing and some of the best mountain biking in the world. Today, Gibsons Landing’s full service marina, farm to table restaurants, craft beer, art galleries and eclectic shopping have made it one of the coast’s top spots for weekend getaways from Vancouver.

Multiple award-winning architectural firm Omicron created the contemporary Pacific Northwest design with extensive use of glass exteriors providing unobstructed views of ocean, mountains and sky. The  adjacent five star service George Hotel will be amenity rich, including a new pedestrian-friendly seawalk, expanded marina, marina-side restaurant, 350 dinner seating-sized conference centre, and a 21,000 square foot Health and Wellness Centre, the first of its kind in the Vancouver region and second only in Canada.

Inside the George Residences the attention to detail is second to none. Ranging from 650 to over 2,000 square feet, each home will feature European kitchen cabinetry and imported appliances, quality engineered hardwood flooring, porcelain, engineered stone and quartz finishes, free-standing soaker tubs, and gas fireplaces along with spacious terraces and panoramic waterfront views.

Priority registrations are being accepted currently, with a sales event to be announced, summer of 2016.

Two bedroom homes start at $699,900.
