Vancouver mayor calls massive First Nation development a 'gift to the city'

Squamish Nation plans to build 11 housing towers on reserve land in the heart of the city

CBC News · Posted: Nov 07, 2019 7:54 PM PT

Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart says he supports a local First Nation's plan to build a large-scale housing project in the centre of the city that is raising concerns about the pressures it will place on city infrastructure and services.

The Squamish Nation is planning to construct 11 housing towers with 6,000 housing units on 11 acres of property it owns at the south end of the Burrard Street Bridge. The Senakw development will be on federal reserve land, meaning the nation does not need permission from the city to forge ahead.
