Westbank developments in coordination with First Baptist Church. Founded in 1992, Westbank is one of the largest developers in North America.

Westbank currently has an exhibit "Fight for Beauty" at the Fairmont Pacific Rim which showcases much of their past and present work. This exhibit runs October 14 to December 17th. 

Locals first policy

The city council met in October 2017 to discuss a locals first policy in Vancouver. While this policy is still in the works, the city has asked developers to voluntarily adopt this policy. 

Directly From the Westbank website marketing the Butterfly: 

"The marketing campaign is first and foremost targeted to Metro Vancouver residents and workers for 30 days. This gives Metro Vancouver residents and those working in Vancouver the first opportunity to express their interest in buying a home. When sales begin, Metro Vancouver residents and workers will have first selection on homes. For example, if two buyers were interested in a specific home and one was a not a resident or worker or new arrival to Metro Vancouver the “local” would get preference and have the opportunity to purchase that home."

Westbank is not legally required to adopt a Local First program at The Butterfly. Why is Westbank doing this?

Westbank is sensitive to the concerns of the community that is our home. We share people’s concerns about the importance of creating neighbourhoods and believe residents should have the ability to live where they work. We understand it can be difficult for a Vancouverite to buy a pre-sale home when there are foreign buyers in the market. Westbank believes extending our pioneering Local First program to The Butterfly responds to our concerns and those expressed by Vancouverites. We are committed to making it a success."
