Excited About Lantzville Foothills Development


DREAM:  Live On Vancouver Island, Build Your Ocean View Home, Relax.


The Foothills development is an 1838 acre, master-planned neighbourhood, mixed-use village area, and a 900-acre park development in the District of Lantzville.  These lots have spectacular views of the picturesque Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea as some call it).  The Foothills development is just north of Nanaimo and backs onto an expansive park space ready for hiking and exploring for any level of outdoor enthusiast.


Pheasant Hill Homes Ltd. looks into the latest news and facts on ‘The Foothills’ development in Lantzville, on Vancouver Island, in Beautiful BC, Canada.


The entire project is a 4 phase development with a total of 730 lots to eventually be sold over the span of 10 years.  Buyers need a 10% deposit to purchase a lot, with lots ranging from $300,000 to approximately $600,000.  The first Phase released 71 properties in Spring of 2017 which have all been sold.  Now, Phase 1C lots have just been announced and encompass an area hugging Copley Mountain on Broad Ridge Pass.  Phase 1C is has an additional 31 lots that will be made available in late fall.  These are premium lots that range from 0.25 to 1.63 acres in size.  The Foothills will be offering tours up into this new Phase 1C area every Sunday so that potential buyers can view sites and feel informed and prepared for when the sites become available later this fall.  To hop on one of these tours you can meet The Foothills representative at Vipond Rd from 12-5pm every Sunday starting October 7th until the lots go on sale.

Pheasant Hill Homes Ltd. was involved with the initial stages of The Foothills development establishing infrastructure by building a bridge and framing culverts with beautiful rock work back in 2007.  The development was stagnant for 10 years as the developer struggled financially with the downturn in the economy.  Lone Tree Properties Ltd. bought the development which was in receivership and carried on the vision to build what is now known as The Foothills.  The Foothills development is currently finishing its civil infrastructure construction including roads, sewer, water, drainage, electric, gas and hookup points.
