Investing in Princeton, British Columbia



Region:  Thompson/Okanagan

Regional District:  Okanagan-Similkameen

Princeton is a dynamic, growing community in southern British Columbia. The Town sits at the gateway to BC's Southern Interior, just 300 kilometres from downtown Vancouver. The primary economic drivers are: - Forestry - Ranching - Tourism - Mining - Amenity migration (people selecting a place to live based on life style, not economic reasons) The town has a vibrant retail and services sector that reflects the needs of residents and the business community. Available commercial space in the Town's core is limited but there are usually properties available for purchase or lease. Princeton continues to benefit from a robust real estate market. New residential developments are underway in order to meet the needs of a growing community. The Princeton Business Park Phase II is now complete. 22 fully serviced light industrial lots located just minutes away from downtown. For details on the newest phase of the Princeton Business Park, click here. Princeton retains the "can-do" ethic of the men and women who settled this area starting 150 years ago; the settlers, prospectors, miners and ranchers. Our business community, Mayor and Council and Economic Development Office are ready to assist you to become part of our safe, forward moving Town.
