B.C. Assessment has released its list of the most expensive residential properties in the province and the house that came out on top won’t likely be a surprise.

Chip Wilson’s home, located at 3085 Point Grey Road in Vancouver, once again tops the list with an assessment value of $78,837,000. That’s up from $63 million in 2016, $57.6 million in 2015 and $54 million in 2014.

At 15,694 square feet, the Lululemon founder’s home sits on a waterfront lot on the exclusive “Golden Mile,” which houses many of the city’s most luxurious multi-million-dollar homes.

This assessment information was released on Jan. 2 but is based on market values as of July 1, 2017.
