Around Town: Union Bay Estates Development Moving Forward
Kensington/Union Bay Properties is hoping to make a subdivision application to the Ministry of Transportation and Highways and the Comox Valley Regional District within the next week or two for Phase I of the project now known as Union Bay Estates. The first phase will include 30 lots for single-family homes, and 9 of the homes are zoned to accommodate a carriage or laneway style of second dwelling. A three storey building is also planned to begin with the Phase 1 construction.This building will house the developer’s offices as well as offices for other tenants.
A 30-acre park will be created onto the waterfront once the Province and West Fraser complete the coal hill remediation plan. Future plans for the development include a walkway which follows the old Collier Railway corridor, an outdoor gathering place, more residential housing, including a donation of 6 serviced building lots to the CVRD to allow for the construction of affordable housing. An application has been submitted to the Ministry of Environment for the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant. More details on this project are expected to become available in the next week.
It is expected that the approval process will take about 8 more months and once in place, construction of the wastewater treatment plant is expected to begin immediately. More details on this project are expected to become available in the next week.
