Surrounded by the sweeping mountain views and lush topography, Galleries was developed in 2003 at the base of the new Garibaldi Golf Course in Squamish, B.C. 55 residential homes and 10 live/work spaces overlooking lush landscaping and a beautiful outdoor courtyard were inspired by the many art galleries Myron Calof had seen during his travels. With open spacious layouts, high ceilings, and large windows, each home was designed to showcase great furniture, artwork, and collectables and give owners a place to truly define.

The town of Squamish had its beginning during the construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in the 1910s. It was the first southern terminus of that railway. The town remains important in the operations of the line and also the port. Forestry has traditionally been the main industry in the area, and the town's largest employer was the pulp mill operated by Western Forest Products. However, Western's operations in Squamish permanently ceased in 2006. Before the pulp mill, the town's largest employer had been International Forest Products with its sawmill and logging operation, but it closed a few years prior to the pulp mill's closing. In recent years, Squamish has become popular with Vancouver and Whistler residents' escaping the increased cost of living in those places, both less than one hour away by highway. Tourism is an increasingly important part of the town's economy, with an emphasis on outdoor recreation.
