Nestled against a backdrop of pristine forest, an exciting, 20-acre master-planned community is taking shape in Squamish. Introducing Finch Drive, a collection of more than 200 homes that are poised to change the way you think about the intersection of an active outdoor lifestyle, eye-catching modern architecture, and environmental stewardship.
Building for the Future
Like all Diamond Head Development (DHD) communities, Finch Drive homes are designed to minimize their environmental footprint, something Jason Wood, president, says is hardwired into the company’s DNA. “Climate change has given us no choice but to become entirely conscious of our impact on the planet. We’re doing some things that nobody’s done before in the Seas-to-Sky Corridor. It’s challenging, yes; but it’s incredibly exciting too.”
Finch Drive’s duplex and townhome residences will incorporate geothermal heating and cooling
technology that harnesses Earth’s natural heat. They’re also Net Zero and solar-panel ready-meaning you can install panels at a later date or do what many have already chosen and take advantage of Finch Drive’s Net Zero upgrade option.
“No other company has built Net Zero multi-family homes using both solar and geothermal, in Squamish,” Wood said. “This is the way of the future, our children’s future.”
The Lifestyle You Deserve
By design, life at Finch Drive is a celebration of modern sophistication and outdoor activity. Homes feature a stylish minimalism that creates a sense of sanctuary amid the rush of day-to-day living. Elegant, open floor plans are perfect for entertaining or simply kicking back with family.
Step outside, and you’re immersed in the natural beauty that defines this community. Ski slopes are a 45-minute drive away, trails for hiking or mountain biking are just outside your front door, and rock-climbing enthusiasts can accept the challenge of scaling The Chief, a rock-face that draws people from around the world, whenever they feel inspired.
All this, and you’re still walking distance to the burgeoning amenities of downtown Squamish with its intriguing boutiques, galleries, and eateries. You could say, Finch Drive is like having the best of all worlds.
Finch Drive is located at 1050 Finch Drive in Squamish. The presentation centre is
now open at 38141 Second Avenue in downtown. For more information, visit
