Port Moody takes off

Posted on August 21st, 2017

Metro Vancouver is growing – and our population is expected to increase by1.1 million by 2041.

Sleepy Port Moody, a waterfront community of 35,000 set on the picturesque east side of Burrard Inlet, has been discovered thanks to the Evergreen Line which makes commuting to Vancouver possible.

In response, the City has been planning ahead for an influx of newcomers.

Several former industrial sites will be developed into high density residential neighbourhoods.

Coronation Park will include ground oriented townhomes, stacked townhomes, low-rise, and high-rise apartments available as strata, market rental, and affordable/non-market rental. These will range from studio to family friendly units, with childcare, parks, cycling, and pedestrian infrastructure.

There will also be new mixed residential/commercial uses oriented to the street and designed at a pedestrian scale. For example, banks/credit unions, coffee shops, take-out eateries, as well as areas of higher density with restaurants, grocery stores, and other retail.

The proposed 34-acre Flavelle oceanfront site features a mix of business park, commercial recreation, hotel, marina, public market, and higher density residential uses using transit-oriented development.

The proposed Westport Village will include a residential towers, mid-rise apartment buildings, and a hotel.
