UBC Properties Trust started in 1984 with the approval of the UBC Board of Governors, and the area now known as Hampton Place was designated the first residential neighbourhood. Due to the success of Hampton Place and its net gain to UBC of $81 million, the Board of Governors decided in 1994 that an additional 200 acres be transformed into neighbourhoods with a mix of housing, parks, shops, and amenities. Following Hampton Place, UBCPT followed with the development of Hawthorn Place, Chancellor Place, East Campus, and now Wesbrook Place.
