Silva Bay Resort & Marina announces start date of construction on new development

GABRIOLA ISLAND, B.C. – Construction of the new Silva Bay Resort & Marina in the eastern corner of Gabriola Island is slated to begin on Monday, January 24th. 

“We’re very excited to break ground with this development”, says Dean Chen, project manager of the new Silva Bay Resort & Marina. “After working closely with the community for a number of months, we’re delighted to reach this major milestone.”

The new development at Silva Bay Resort & Marina will include replacing the previous general store and restaurant, both having burned down in 2017. Much of the onsite construction will be dedicated to building a new elegant 16 room hotel with environmentally-conscious infrastructure and landscaping in its design, as well as other general improvements and clean-ups regarding the site.

Construction teams will be mobilizing on the site beginning on January 17th in order to prepare for work to begin in earnest the following week.
