With recreational opportunities galore and its proximity to Whistler and Vancouver, Squamish was hungry for housing. Our first townhouse collection in Brackendale laid the foundation for our projects to come. Since then, the team at Target has built homes everywhere from Pemberton to Seattle, and continues to focus on Squamish. Year after year, we see how this area is maturing beautifully, as young families, the ‘rec tech’ industry and the next generation of outdoorsy types come together to enjoy this perfect hometown.
Each Target project starts by scrutinizing the land values and market demand in a neighbourhood, and then investing in the best sites in the best locations – places just like Squamish.
Then we imagine our friends or ourselves living there. We think about which way the sun will stream in through tall windows, where closets would be handiest, what you’ll want to see while you’re grilling up steaks, and how each room should flow from one into the next.
Then we design environmentally conscious, detail-rich homes that intelligently maximize every space and every room – so every home fulfills the needs of adventurous, ambitious homeowners just like you.

His passion for beautiful and functional design, combined with his ability to select and acquire exceptionally located properties, has led him to build braggable communities throughout Squamish and the Pacific Northwest.
After graduating in Urban Development at the University of Western Ontario, David Ransier worked for national development companies performing investment and operational strategies. In 1992, David and Grant started their own development company that is now Target Homes. David’s attention to detail and crystal clear understanding of the construction process ensure nothing is overlooked in the building of a Target home.
