A Multi Use Lifestyle Resort Community

A Community Vision and Re-Zoning Application before the Town of Qualicum Beach

Development Project to generate $40-50 million of economic activity

Pheasant Glen Golf Resort has a Re-Zoning Application for 1025 Qualicum Road, adjacent to the resort property, that is before the Town of Qualicum Beach. It is expected to generate $40-50 million in economic activity for the local area.

This Development Proposal include 225 units of mixed cottage, cabin, and stacked condo/hotel units. Amenities proposed include a new clubhouse, restaurant/brewery pub, pool, meeting rooms, confectionery, spa, outdoor recreation facilities, biking, walking, and hiking trails connected to the Town of Qualicum Beach trail system. The proposal is to create an outstanding residential community that protects the natural environment, its ecosystems and biodiversity, and promotes water and energy conservation.

Status of Application

We began the work on this application for rezoning in February, 2020 with an application to subdivide the golf course from the development land. The rezoning application was submitted in June, 2020. In February of this year, the Advisory and Planning Committee held a hearing and gave approval shortly thereafter. The Public Hearing was held on March 31, 2021, and third reading of the by-law was passed in late April.

Town Council will consider adoption of the Development Proposal on Wednesday July 28.

Continuing Collaboration

As part of the Development Proposal, Town Council is also reviewing affordable housing options—1) new property owners would contribute $2000/unit, to a total of $450,000 toward the development of affordable housing within the Town; or 2) property owners will construct two, 1,100 sq. ft. resort cabins for use of resort employees and qualified town residents.

Pheasant Glen is looking forward to continuing collaboration with Town Planning Staff and Council to create a more adaptive land use framework for development of the land.

Community Vision

“Our vision it to establish a resort community next to the golf course that will be nestled into the natural environment and be a vibrant place full of energy—where weddings will take place, friends and families will gather, and our grandchildren down the road can find adventure and make memories.”
Gord Melissa, Pheasant Glen General Manager

    Overview Illustration
    Quarry Gardens

    The Quarry Gardens will attract tourism, create jobs, re-use resource-depleted land, and engage the local community.

    The design concept for the Quarry Gardens is inspired by the west coast. Open for public use, the gardens include 1km of trails that weave through native plant communities, local ecosystems, and manicured coastal wildflower meadows.

    A central rainwater collection pond feature will collect surface run off during storm events that will cascade into the space, making this a true west coast ‘rain garden’ experience. The picnic pavilion offers a shelter for recreation overlooking the pond.

    Quarry Gardens
    Brew Pub & Clubhouse

    The concept for the new Brew Pub and Clubhouse will embrace the agricultural heritage of the surrounding geography.

    This new building will be located within the golf course lands with a golf shop, restaurant, bistro, and brew pub. The building and surroundings will have the capacity to serve several groups simultaneously — such as golfers after a game, private parties, weddings, and local residents.

    The synergy of food and beverage facilities, accommodation, and range of recreation options will contribute to a vibrant resort and valuable community amenity.

    Resort Lodge, Cabins & Villas

    The Resort Lodge will feature 40, one or two bedroom hotel units (500-1,000 sq.ft) with kitchens. These units will be intended for daily/weekly rentals during the peak season, and monthly in the off-season. 

    Resort Cabins (900-1,200 sq.ft) will provide flexible year-round accommodation for groups of golfers, hikers, bikers, and bird watchers. The location will provide walking, biking, or golf cart access to resort amenities. 

    Resort Villas will be rural scale and character, single-family units (1,800-2,500 sq.ft) suitable for year-round occupation—ideal for an environmentally responsible resort.
