2019 has officially ended and as we move forward into 2020, we can’t help but look back at the successes Westbow has seen in the last decade.
2009: At the end of the last decade Westbow saw a big change, the addition of Nick Westeringh to the company as Chief Executive Officer. Westbow was established in 1977 by Dick Westeringh with a goal of providing homes for families across Western Canada. One of Dick’s children, Nick, stepped up to the task of helping with the continuous growth of Westbow.
2010: Located in the promontory area, 2010 saw the launch of construction on Solara. A collection of single family homes with beautiful views of the Chilliwack Valley.
2011: Two of Westbow’s largest developments were officially secured in 2011. Elk Creek Estates is a 7 phase development (currently under phase 6 construction) with over 120 single family homes. This unique development features a play park, walking trails and a variety of floor plan layouts.. 2011 also saw the start of Prowest, a group of developments including Benchley Creek, Sylvan Heights, Southridge, Greenwood trails and Sylvan homes. This project has provided the residents of Chilliwack with hundreds of homes, at various price points.
2012: Westbow’s official expansion into Saskatchewan kicked off in 2012. With Justin Westeringh taking the lead on the building projects and partnering with Realtor Marla Janzen, Westbow’s Saskatchewan projects have helped to fill a gap in the market. 2012 began the start of 2 large projects for the Saskatchewan team, Radius and 4 duplexes on Langer Street.
2013: Construction on the Hillcrest development started in 2013. Featuring 144 units and located in Promentory, Hillcrest sold out in 2018. Westbow Saskatchewan started construction on 45 Langer Street, a 45 unit project.
2014: Westbow Saskatchewan started two significant projects in 2014. 700 Central is a collection of 27 Duplex units located in the Warman area. 600 Maple, also located in Warman, boasts 24 townhomes and took 1.5 years to complete.
2015: Westbow construction continued to grow reaching the 1000th home milestone in Chilliwack.
2016: Westbow Construction continued to grow in Saskatchewan. In 2016 construction started on Sunrise Development in Warman, Saskatchewan. This 32 unit development features luxury townhomes.
2017: 2017 saw 2 more developments start construction in Saskatchewan. Horizon and Montgomery are high end townhomes that are currently still selling.
2018: Marking another successful year, 2018 brought one of Westbow’s most exciting project, Webster Crossing. Now nominated in 2019 for development of the year, Webster Crossing contains townhomes, rowhomes, and single family homes.
2019: 2019 has been one of the biggest years of growth for the Westbow Group of Companies. Westbow Capital Income trust was launched January 3rd, providing a hassle free way to invest in real estate. Summer brought the launch of the Westbow Group’s Equipment Rental Company, KGH Equipment. Lastly, ProKey Living took form in November, providing a property management company for the Westbow Group’s many rental units.
Looking forward to 2020: The Westbow Group of Companies growth shows no sign of slowing down. Breaking Ground of the Cedarbrook development provides Westbow Construction with its biggest project to date. The company looks forward to continuing to grow and provide Western Canada with new homes.
