Originally called the Capilano Estates, this is an exclusive neighbourhood of West Vancouver where many of British Columbia’s wealthiest residents live.
The area of West Vancouver was first settled by European immigrants in the 1870s. With no direct access to the shore, the growth was slow. However, by 1912 West Vancouver was incorporated as a municipality. In 1926, the Town Planning Act established the young municipality as a residential community and curtailed industry growth.
Alfred James Towle Taylor owned the franchise rights to build the Lions Gate Bridge, but did not have the funds to create the bridge. He convinced members of the Guiness Family (of Irish beer fame) to invest in land on the north shore, about 4,700 acres, stretching up above the upper levels highway, and to fund the bridge.
That helped to secure the funding for the bridge and development in the British Properties, and other neighbourhoods on the North Shore, took off. The completion of the Lions Gate Bridge in 1938 provided quick and easy access to this neighbourhood and others. New roads, parks and bridges sprang up to service the new residents.
