I sent an email for more information and this is what I received:
We are currently in the beginning stages of the development. That being said we don't have all of our marketing materials created. We will keep you up to date as new information becomes available.
The Union Bay Community
This is kind of creepy, isn't it? It's no longer Kensington Coastal Pointe - it's The Union Bay Community. Did we just get swallowed?
Did Jim Youngren change his plans from 1996, regarding turning it over to local developers once the zoning was changed?
And......finally, here's more info on the Savior of Union Bay:
Brian McMahonBorn in Edmonton, Alberta, KIP vice-president Brian McMahon has resided in British Columbia for 38 years and made his home in the Comox Valley for the past 10. As project manager, he has an intimate knowledge of the KIP landscape and was instrumental in the revitalization of Hart/Washer Creek. He’s now a director of the Hart/Washer Creek Salmon Enhancement Society.
McMahon has an extensive background in residential and commercial construction throughout B.C. He’s also worked under contract to the provincial government as project manager administering federal and provincial tourism programs for the province. And, while vice-president of Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, oversaw a significant expansion of the facility. During the mid 1990’s McMahon served as a negotiator during the controversial Commission on Resources and the Environment. Over the years he’s even found time to be involved in provincial politics.
McMahon has negotiated client real estate holdings with foreign governments and, for a while, was in the aircraft modification and agricultural/aviation business in California. He’s also owned two U.S. corporations, a trade show production company and a consulting firm specializing in corporate downsizing of real estate holdings.
This tidbit is very interesting to me - would love to have more info:
