The property currently is operating numerous facets of businesses including vacation rentals that are fully occupied, a new barbershop, a whale watching adventure tour business and a marine lab. The development will be adding more retail and amenities soon as well which makes this an amazing opportunity to obtain occupancy at the beginning of this developments progression.

Office and retail spaces are available with most of them consisting of ocean views. An abundance of parking is available for customers and employees with an option to designate exclusive stalls.

Tenant Improvement Allowance and/or Free Rent is negotiable for a Qualified Tenant.

New Development: Future Retail Space Opportunities

Located on the corner of Lee Road and the Island Highway, the owner will be developing additional retail. The traffic intersection is lighted with ample exposure and visibility. Situated between Qualicum and Parksville lends itself as a great community hub for commuters and those in surrounding neighbourhoods. The owners of this property are currently under consultation with the RDN and the community to determine the best future uses but with CM6 Zoning and a French Creek Mixed Use designation within the OCP, the property is conducive to many uses over approx 10 acres.

This Plan envisions that the French Creek Harbour will continue to be the focal point of the community of French Creek. The lands surrounding the French Creek Harbour contain a variety of historic complimentary land uses including single residential, commercial, multi-residential, and institutional, which when combined provide an opportunity for a limited amount of local services within a reasonable walking distance to serve the needs of the Community. The mixed use area supported by this Plan builds upon the existing commercial zoning by recognizing the existing development and supporting a mix of commercial and residential uses in close proximity to French Creek Harbour.
