Legacy and Commitment

Lantern Properties Ltd. is a multi-generational, multi-family housing operator and developer founded in 1962 by Arthur & Arlene Hayes. The family's first commercial property was a low-rise concrete apartment building in the Ambleside neighbourhood of West Vancouver. Since then, Lantern has steadily grown its portfolio to include properties in several east and west-side Vancouver neighborhoods, as well as the James Bay, Upper Fort, and Rockland areas of Victoria.

In 2015, Lantern initiated and successfully completed a programme to add density to existing sites. Lantern remains committed to providing high-quality housing, managed conscientiously and responsibly, and looks forward to breaking ground on two new multi-family projects in 2019/20. Lantern is actively involved with Landlord BC and the Urban Development Institute, a reflection of Lantern's commitment to the communities in which it operates.

Developments in Progress

Hadera is a collection of 32 rental homes in Victoria's beautiful Rockland community. Hadera is situated approximately 40 feet back from Fort Street, creating a peaceful and quiet environment for residents.

Kirya is a collection of 11 beautiful rental homes in Vancouver's vibrant West End – a brief walk from English Bay and the abundance of dining and shopping opportunities on Davie Street. Kirya offers residents everything they need in one of the world's most exciting neighbourhoods. The Burrard and the Granville Street bridges are a three-minute drive away, making Kirya an excellent choice for those who wish to make frequent trips out of downtown. Project construction starting September 2021, with completion by summer 2022.

Malinview is a 68-home rental building slated for development in Vancouver's eclectic Grandview-Woodland neighbourhood. Lantern's new development is a stone's throw from Commercial Drive's Little Italy and its organic grocers, restaurants, bars, and specialty shops. Malinview offers convenience, excitement, and rich culture. The development is a short walk from the Skytrain station and Broadway's bus routes.
