Developer Myron Calof of TiGERi Properties Inc. is working to bring a unique development style to Squamish.His
project on Tantalus Way at the Garibaldi Springs Golf Resort, called Galleries, will feature resort style condominium residences and live-work business lofts.
Fifty units are proposed and some of the units in the project will feature ground floor business studios with connected residences.Calof
said the ground floor of the live-work units will feature an indoor commercial area connected to a patio adjacent to the sidewalk and Tantalus Way.He
said the commercial space can be used as an artisan studio, a professional office or for some other commercial venture.Beyond the commercial space will be a kitchen, a dining room, a den and then another patio on the opposite side of the building for private residential use.The second floor of the units features a master bedroom and bathroom with a large closet and a flex room that overlooks the studio space below.The signature units will have third floor sky lofts with high-sloped ceilings and private rooftop decks with a 360-degree view.
"There is nothing like it in Squamish
at all," Calof
"We've already got interest from some very unique business people interested in capturing the Whistler
traffic, the Garibaldi Springs traffic and the local traffic looking for something unique," said Calof
new development on Tantalus Way.Calof
applied recently to the District of Squamish for a development permit and a zoning amendment.
The project has gone through the zoning process once already.
"We really are at the beginning of the re-building of Squamish
, and buildings like Galleries break the mould of "been there, done that" and bring together contemporary architectural design and mountain resort themes," said Calof
