Comox: Approvals proceeding for 71 mixed residential units.  

Registration is expected in the next few weeks for 71 residential units in Comox. This is Phase 2 of this project and it includes: four duplexes (eight units), 28 single-family lots, a 22-unit townhouse site and 13 patio home/bare-land strata lots. Construction on the duplexes is expected to be underway in the 4th quarter of 2022. Some of the single-family homes will be zoned to accommodate secondary suites and/or carriage homes. The majority of the lots have been reserved. Prices of any remaining lots are expected to range from $374,900 to $559,900. Ryan McQueen Builders will be managing the townhouse project and Halo Homes will be building the duplexes. Phase 1 was approved in July of 2021.

Courtenay: 28 mini homes for the Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community.

Silverado Land Corp is moving forward with site construction along the first fairway at Crown Isle in Courtenay. The project includes installing 28 mini homes as part of the resort’s accommodation options. Full sewer and water hookups are being installed and infrastructure expected to take place over the Fall and Winter. The mini homes are manufactured by Crown Mini Homes and are expected to be ready to accept guest reservations in early 2023. Crown Mini Homes is also selling CSA approved modular mini homes and have several layouts to choose from.

Powell River: Rezoning proceeding for a 42 unit subdivision.

Powell River has approved first reading for rezoning for a 42 unit family oriented subdivision including single family lots and carriage homes at 5201 Manson Avenue. The owner has applied to rezone the property from A1 to CD4 (Comprehensive Development Four – Residential Small Lots) to facilitate a future subdivision of the lands. The developer intends to create an affordable neighbourhood for young families. The initial proposal in January included 28 to 31 single family lots. City staff did not support the initial proposal and requested an increase in density with a multi-family project. The developer disagreed and has suggested approximately 42 homes with the potential of 8 being within 2 fourplexes and 14 carriage houses. Further readings are subject to the applicant demonstrating legal access to Joyce Avenue and approval of a detailed survey plan.
