Jericho Lands is a 90-acre site located on the west side of Vancouver in the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation, and Tsleil-Waututh Nation. Situated between downtown Vancouver and the UBC campus, the site knits together Jericho Beach, the West Broadway Corridor, and the surrounding communities. The site is being developed through a historic joint-venture partnership between the Canada Lands Company (CLC) and the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh (MST Partnership). A collaborative effort, HPA is part of a larger team that includes Urban Strategies, PFS Studio, Formline Architecture, and Ramsay Worden Architects, amongst others, to establish a new vision for the site.


Working alongside local communities and municipalities, the vision for the project involves a new model of development—one that recognizes the cultural and spiritual significance of these lands for over thousands of years—while envisioning what a sustainable and inclusive community could look like when it embeds Indigenous values in the design process and is guided by the spirit of reconciliation.
