British Pacific Properties: West Vancouver History and Giveaway

Comments 172 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Lions Gate Bridge is one of Vancouver’s most recognizable landmarks. Its green towers and suspension cables, adorned with brilliant bulbs, has been the main connection between West Vancouver and the rest of the Lower Mainland since 1938. Almost as well-known as its silhouette is its story, at least the part where the Guinness family is concerned. The family, of Irish stout fame, funded the construction of the bridge through a syndicate, British Pacific Properties, and forever changed the local landscape.

British Pacific Properties

British Pacific Properties (“BPP”), typically referred to as British Properties, is the well-known residential area situated on the North Shore of Burrard Inlet between the Capilano River and Howe Sound. Properties here, on West Vancouver’s south-facing slopes, are much sought after for their panoramic views and unique topography. The British Pacific Properties moniker is also synonymous with the company that has owned and been developing the land for more than 80 years.

Owned by the Guinness family, British Pacific Properties owns all the land in West Vancouver above the Upper Levels Highway from Taylor Way to Horseshoe Bay. Totalling some 4,000 acres, the land was purchased from the municipality during the Great Depression, when residents were unable to pay their property taxes and the local municipality was threatened with bankruptcy. In turn the Guinness family — led by the Rt. Honourable Walter Guinness, Lord Moyne — committed to funding $1 million in local municipal improvements over a five-year period and constructing the Lions Gate Bridge connecting West Vancouver to the city for the first time.

This purchase proved the catalyst for a whole new chapter in the area’s growth and development. In the 1930s, Lions Gate Bridge construction was a vital employment booster in exceptionally difficult economic times, while projects such as Park Royal (one of Canada’s first shopping centres) and Capilano Golf Club contributed significantly to growing and modernizing West Vancouver. Meanwhile, many of the neighbourhood’s early residential homes were defining a whole new West Coast architectural style.

Also vital to the area’s evolution was the Guinness family’s decision to hire the Olmsted Brothers, a renowned firm of U.S. landscape architects responsible for such distinctive city landmarks as NYC’s Central Park and Montreal’s Mount Royal Park. Determined to create a remarkable subdivision featuring pleasant parks, winding, treed streetscapes and spectacular vistas, British Properties was designed as an exclusive sanctuary from the stresses of city living. This set the tone for the area’s future development while establishing the unique character and values of an emerging community.

Today, beyond residential development, BPP is a vertically integrated company that builds roads, trails, parks and public amenities. Over the years it has contributed more than 200 acres to the District of West Vancouver (at a value of more $100 million) and given to many different local endeavours, such as the West Vancouver Streamkeeper Society.

One of BPP’s latest developments is Aston Hill, a limited collection of twenty residences featuring spectacular water views.

    Whytecliff Park is absolutely beautiful, and we try to go there as often as possible to try to get a glimpse of seals (very likely) and harbour porpoises (a bit more tricky).

  23. Ruby BBWednesday, March 25th, 2015 — 2:02pm PDT

    Ambleside Park for nature time & Park Royal Mall for shopping

  24. Renee LauerWednesday, March 25th, 2015 — 2:05pm PDT

    It is a toss up between Ambleside, Whytecliff or Lighthouse Park! But if I really had to pick just one I would go with Lighthouse Park.

  25. AlexWednesday, March 25th, 2015 — 2:05pm PDT

    My favorite space is the dog park at ambelside right across from the pitch and putt (even though I don’t have a dog). It is close to the bridge, has great views, and is so relaxing!

    The small beach at the foot of Radcliffe, facing English Bay anchor #19. Without doubt, ‘The Best’

  38. Margaret ButtnerWednesday, March 25th, 2015 — 3:25pm PDT

    My favourite spot in West Vancouver is Dundarave Beach. I grew up a block away and spent so much time there as a child. During the summer evenings, my dad would walk us down to the beach and sit with the other dads while we all played in the surf. One of my brothers worked at Peppi’s (the pre-cursor to the Beach House) and we all went to school with the family that owned the restaurant. My roots are there for sure!

  39. mariaWednesday, March 25th, 2015 — 3:42pm PDT

    The Seawall is definitely one of the best walks in West Vancouver from one end to the other…and it ends at the Beach House, sporting the best view in town especially when the Cruise Ships come in.

  103. BettyThursday, March 26th, 2015 — 10:03pm PDT

    On a sunny day I drive to Park Royal, then walk the seawall from the mall to Dundarave Pier, return. The views along that seawall are second to none…I am grateful to live in such beautiful surroundings!

    When I return to Park Royal, I sit with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the ambiance of Park Royal Village. Whole Foods in the village, is my last stop before returning home.

    Lighthouse park is breathtaking. To this day the entrance to it remains tucked away which i love, it’s a hidden “gem”

    Lots of great spots to pick from! But I have to say Hollyburn Lodge.

    West Vancouver has many lovely features, but our favorite activity is during the winter months when we can take our snowshoes and hike up to the old historic Hollyburn Lodge. The hike in is so peaceful and the reward at the end of the walk is arriving at Hollyburn Lodge nestled in amongst the trees. It is so unique with it’s slanting floors and pot belly stove. A great place to warm up and have a delicious homemade lunch. It is so wonderful that this old Lodge has been maintained so that we can still enjoy it after all these years and we hope it will still be available for use for many generations to come, so that the enjoyment will be continued….

    My gramps took me to CHAD as a kid: Capilano, Horseshoe bay, Ambleside, and Dundarave!

    The beach at Dundarave, essentially in front of the beach house. Having worked at the old Peppi’s restaurant, one of my favorite things to do at the end of the night was just sit at the beach, sometimes the pier and look out over the water.
