Downtown and Dentville

Originally an agricultural settlement and trading post in the early 1890s, the downtown quarter has blossomed over the years into a booming commercial centre offering a wide selection of amenities. There has been significant growth in the last 5 years alone. Several new low-rise buildings have been constructed not only along the Mamquam Blind channel but sprinkled throughout the area. Apartment buildings range in size from smaller 20-unit buildings to larger multiple purpose buildings with 100 units.  Most have a ground floor commercial component allowing for a wide range of shops and services attracting more people into the area. Food trucks and outdoor patios on Cleveland Ave make the area come alive with a nice blend of shops to frequent from fine restaurants, specialty shops and boutiques, art galleries, furniture stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, a post office, retail shops, veterinary offices, and so much more. The Squamish Farmer’s Market is held outdoors on Sunday’s in the summer time where you will find fresh local vegetables, baked goods, and unique creations from local vendors. The winter Market can be found at the Adventure Center, located just outside the downtown core.
On the south side of the Blind Channel 2 large master planned communities are presently under construction that will offer unique homes and amenities.  These will eventually be linked with a pedestrian bridge over the waterway along with a boardwalk to the downtown core.  Situated with waterfront there will be the ability to launch small watercraft almost from your front door. With direct access to Highway 99 either North or South will make the location attractive to those that need to commute or enjoy what can be found less than an hour away from Squamish (Vancouver or Whistler)
Dentville is situated just a five or ten–minute walk from the main downtown core, and offers lots of sun and larger, flat lots. Once considered an older neighbourhood, Dentville has evolved into an up-and-coming area, thanks to new construction and the revitalization of many properties, as well as the area’s affordable prices.
