For 18 years the challenge for Terry Hui and Concord Pacific has revolved around its massive city-within-a-city Expo-land project. With the development almost complete, the next 18 years look a little different .
Hui intended to establish a software company
but his father owned property in Vancouver and
wanted to develop it. So he went to work
helping to build various projects. "I did
everything," Hui says. "I even patched concrete."

The closest things to missteps for the company have occurred when it has attempted to deviate from the highrise model. Greata Ranch (above), in the Okanagan, has been a victim of the slowdown in recreational real estate, a phenomenon that has also sideswiped the company’s Porteau Cove development north of Lions Bay (not shown).
