Ecoasis acquired Bear Mountain in October 2013 and has subsequently invested significant time and resources working with the residents and golf members to stabilize and strengthen the resort community in preparation for moving forward.

After three years of planning and consultation with the community, Ecoasis has prepared a Bear Mountain Master Plan. Phase one of the residential real estate plan is the creation of the Cypress neighbourhood, slated for build out starting in fall 2016. Cypress consists of 27 single-family residential lots and 33 townhomes. These beautiful Bear Mountain offerings are situated between the 3rd and 5th Fairways of the Nicklaus Design Mountain Course.

To enhance and protect the values of neighbouring homes, satisfy the demand for new higher quality homes and to attract the best of builders to the community, Ecoasis is introduced a new ‘Designated Builder’ strategy for lot sales in Cypress.

A group of high-quality, like-minded builders were invited to build out this newest Bear Mountain neighbourhood. These respected builders bring their proven reputation for quality and design to the community. They have committed to building custom homes for end users or will build homes to high-end specifications, demonstrating the quality of their fine workmanship. Potential homebuyers will have a tangible understanding of the value of the neighbourhood and the security of their investment.

Through the program, the Designated Builders will work together with Ecoasis to ensure neighbouring homes in Bear Mountain’s emerging neighbourhoods complement one another with respect to street scape, sense of scale and mass, curb-appeal and quality.

The 27 single-family residential lots in Cypress were partially available to Designated Builders and partially available to Purchasers seeking lots.

The Designated Builder Program works as follows: buyers of lots in Cypress will choose one of the builders identified in the Program, anyone interested in a particular lot already committed to by a builder will need to work with that particular builder.

Marketing initiatives to attract traffic to Bear Mountain will directly benefit Builder’s selling their homes. This collaborative effort includes a new Bear Mountain website with tools (a site map with specific information on each of the single family lots including renderings, floor plans, and builder information on their finished home for each lot) that will provide increased exposure to the Builder and their Cypress homes. The same information will be available at the Bear Mountain Sales Office and via email, providing potential buyers of a new home at Bear Mountain direct access to the Designated Builders. The exclusive nature of this relationship is extremely beneficial to the buyer.

The Designated Builder Program affords buyers the opportunity to have input on the design and provide creative ideas for custom homes. Lot purchasers can look forward to Designated Builders achieving their dream home.
