Northside Brownfield Property Set for Residential Redevelopment
The former 4.72-hectare Diamond construction property at Station Road and Barker Street (near the intersection of Union St & the Nashwaak River)is being planned for a 139-unit residential development.
Colpitts Developments plan to construct two apartment buildings with a total of 63 units, plus 52 units in nine townhouse buildings and 24 semi-detached buildings. The company is also planning 36 spaces of underground parking. Once a work site for the construction company, the property has been cleared for residential development by the provincial Environment Department.
The city's planning advisory committee approved the concept and is moving the development plan forward to city council.Since a zoning change is needed, city council has final say on the application.
