174 Grice Road in Tofino consists of over 34,000 square feet of land, plus a foreshore water lease that could potentially be used for some sort of floating amenity. Located on the edge of Tofino’s downtown area and within easy walking distance to the float plane terminal, great restaurants, galleries and local shops, this property is ideally situated on the water’s edge with views over Clayoquot Sound and Tofino’s picturesque inner harbour. The property is currently operated as the Wildpod Luxury Glamping Resort with improvements consisting of 6 luxury geodesic domes pods operated under a Temporary Use Permit. The "Wildpods" are extremely popular with visitors to Tofino and are very profitable.
The primary opportunity with 174 Grice Road is as a development opportunity for the construction of up to 25 tourist accommodation units that can be rented on a nightly basis. With a level and clean site, full municipal services to the lot line and comprehensive development zoning that will accommodate 25 units plus a 2-bedroom staff or managers suite, this site offers an excellent opportunity for a prudent developer/investor to capitalize on Tofino’s reputation as one of Canada’s top tourist destinations.
Located mid-way along Vancouver Island’s west coast, Tofino is a quaint island town and one of British Colombia’s top tourist destinations. Once an historic fishing port, the Village of Tofino is perhaps best known for its breathtakingly rugged landscape, endless sandy beaches, old growth forests and abundant wildlife (both land and sea based). Tofino is now a year-round tourist destination centered on its endless recreational opportunities that include year-round surfing, whale watching, sport fishing, storm watching, beach combing, hiking and more. While the oceanfront town has a base population of less than 2,000 full time residents, the population swells during the peak summer tourist season with an estimated 1,000,000 visitors a year.
