The aboriginal word generally translated means welcome to our place. An exact name for the shopping centre hasn't been selected.
He didn't see the project requiring any change to the process still underway for Albion flats at 105th Avenue and Lougheed Highway. Landowners will apply to exclude from the land reserve the property on the west side of 105th Avenue, even though the Agricultural Land Commission has said it won't approve an exclusion.
"The market is here. We're more than satisfied that this is a top end development site and we're treating it in that manner."
But Daykin said that was "more pessimistic" than it needed to be. He pointed out a development could put in its own water and sewer systems and wouldn't be completely dependent on Metro Vancouver.
PDG has just completed Eagle Landing Shopping Centre in Chilliwack, in partnership with Squialia First Nation. That's a 650,000 sq. ft development anchored by Wal Mart and Home Depot.
"We obviously believe the opportunity is real and it's now. We don't need to wait a few years for other approval or third party events to happen. This site is ready now," PDG chairman Lawrence Rank said Tuesday as members of the Kwantlen band gathered on the site at Lougheed Highway and 250th Street for the announcement.
"We want to let people know this is one of the parts of our nation."
Negotiating an agreement will burn through thousands of dollars in staff time, he added.
Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has OK'd a traffic signal and full intersection for the site on the south side of the Lougheed Highway, which is about three kilometres Pink Prada Bag east of 240th Street.
Rank stressed that the project will get going, soon. "This is zoned, serviced land."
a native theme and a cultural centre built at the west end, near the First Nations cemetery.
Keith McRae, also with PDG, said analysis shows there's demand for a new shopping centre regardless of whether retail development happens in Albion flats. "We believe there's more than enough demand for this project at this location."

Sewage will be treated on site, but an agreement is needed with Metro Vancouver to supply water.
"There is no requirement, legal or otherwise. It's important to keep that in mind." he told council. Instead, the district has to ensure full cost recovery for providing any services, such as water or sewer, or parks or roads. Even the long term costs of extending infrastructure to reserve lands has to be considered, otherwise local taxpayers will be holding the bill.
The shopping centre will be the first stage in a phased project that will include up to 450 homes on the north side of the highway and an eco recreation area along the Fraser River on the band's land, Indian Reserve No. 5.
Many people know the band is based in Fort Langley, but aren't aware of its traditional lands on the north side of the river. "We need to be visible on this side as well. We want to showcase our people."
"It's just a very exciting time. People have worked hard," she said.
Last November, Ralph Drew, chair of the Lower Mainland treaty advisory committee warned municipalities to set iron clad agreements with First Nations businesses to protect local taxpayers.

Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin didn't know of the announcement and said it would have been nice to have been invited. "But am I going to get my knickers in a knot? No."
The Maple Ridge project will be about half that with only one major tenant at the east end of the outdoor mall.
The site, named Schwnee st, has been preloaded with soil for several years, so it's ready for development.
Mall underway this year
Chief Marilyn Gabriel said it's the largest development undertaken by the band council.
The District of Maple Ridge's approval isn't needed, but the band has met with council last year.
Kwantlen had already shown its plans at an open house in Albion hall in 2010. That drew positive reaction from residents, said consultant Steve Zuliani.
The buildings won't aim to get certification by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards. That system of energy smart buildings hasn't yet reached the retail sector, said Rank.
"It's ready to go. We're in the business of doing not procrastinating."
The shopping centre will have Prada Crossbody Bag Nylon
Rank said he's in constant communication with retailers and knows what they want and where the demand is. But there's no tenant list yet. Getting the leases signed is one of the more time consuming parts of the project, he added. But word is expected on that soon.
