Imagine…magazine-photo-friendly cottages, laneway housing, work-live commercial buildings downtown, and cozy, modest-size homes, all wrapped in a cool mountain modern industrial architectural style. WE have imagined it, and we’re working to bring it to life. Be a pioneer investor and entrepreneur in the NEW Canal Flats!
Canal Flats is seeking pioneer investors that will re-build the downtown in a form unique to the Columbia Valley: work-live. “Work-live” refers to a building where the primary use is commercial, but the entrepreneur lives on the second floor…connected to the commercial enterprise. The benefit is a form and function that steps beyond home-based business while creating an entrepreneurial form that is lighter on the pocketbook overall. That leaves ability to focus on the business—whether it is a creative artistic enterprise, provides tourism services, commercial services to the Columbia Valley, or operates glob-ally as an Internet business. The Village is currently finalizing policy adjustments to full enable this potential. We are looking for those who see the vision…one that isn’t there now but is fully realizable in a community in an inspired location, with a new vision of itself.
