Just 10 minutes south of Squamish along the Sea to Sky Highway lies an old copper mining town known as Britannia Beach. Established in the late 1800s, today the town is a charming village and popular tourist destination for anyone looking to experience its rich history, arts and culture. While mining is Britannia Beach is a thing of the past, builders Adera and Macdonald Development Corporation are set to break ground on an even more valuable asset to this historic community.
Named after the town itself, Britannia Beach townhomes promise to be a welcome addition to the established neighbourhood. The new community will feature 73 two- and three-bedroom homes, including eight with live/work zoning.
Units are equipped with enhanced internet connectivity, perfect for working from home and staying connected to loved ones. Open concept living areas with large windows were designed to replicate the sense of ease and flow found in the surrounding natural landscape.
Tucked up against a five-star wilderness playground, these homes boast exciting views of the surrounding forests, mountains and waterfronts from spacious patios. Many units feature rooftop decks for watching the sun rise and set over the Howe Sound. Future residents can enjoy a children’s play area, community garden and direct beach-front access via a Creekside trail.
Ranging in size from 1,562 to 1,895 square feet, Britannia Beach offers flexible housing options for residents at all stages of life. With plenty of life-enriching amenities nearby, this community promises to meet the needs of young couples, new families, single workers, retirees and investors looking to snag a spot in one of B.C.’s most sought-after locations.
At the centre of the town lies the award-winning Britannia Mine Museum. A popular tourist attraction, this unique museum offers visitors the opportunity to go back in time and experience what life was like when Britannia Beach was a booming mining town. This vivid connectivity with history is evident throughout the community, and Britannia Beach townhomes plans to honour those roots.

This effort to continue revitalizing the area’s local economy means residents can enjoy the best of both worlds – idyllic natural surroundings with all the amenities of a metropolitan area.
