- Club Member Esther Del V. introduced todays' guest speaker: 


British Pacific Properties Vice President of Development Geoff Croll. 

Mr. Croll began with a brief outline of the history of BPP here in our community. From 1931 to the present day BPP has, more than any other corporate entity, been an integral part of the history of modern day West Vancouver. Beginning with the construction of the Lions Gate Bridge and the development of the British Properties neighbourhood along with the Capilano G&CC, the company then moved on to develop the Park Royal Mall shopping centre and the Park Royal Towers apartment complex. BPP's latest project is located in the Rogers Creek area of Hollyburn Mountain. The development area is 6000 acres in size and will be comprised of six separate community 'nodes' linked by a path network, the development will also have an amenities centre located adjacent to the West Vancouver municipal works yard. A total of 736 housing units will be built, of those 70% will be condo/apartments, 14% townhomes, 13% single family dwellings and 3% duplex or triplex structures. As 55% of the development will be green space the final effect will be of small mountainside villages linked to each other by a pedestrian/cycle path. Work has already begun on the project and some of the lots/structures have been presold. 

Sam C. thanked Geoff for joining us this morning.

- 50/50/happy/sad/fines: no winners, no losers.
