Maple Ridge housing development gets final OK

A major housing project planned for the east entrance to downtown Maple Ridge has cleared the last remaining hurdle.

Council, on Tuesday, gave final reading to two bylaws allowing the construction of 84 single-family homes, 24 rental apartments and 252 townhouses – 360 more houses, that will straddle both sides of the Lougheed Highway, just west of Kanaka Way. Included will be 1,093 sq. metres of commercial space.

“I’m very excited to see this get final reading,” said Coun. Tyler Shymkiw. “I think this is going to finish off this area of the community beautifully.”

Polygon is doing the development on property formerly owned by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

The development will see a one-acre piece of land on the site, given to the city for a park and will also include the developer paying $2.5 million in voluntary community amenity contributions. Developers pay those based on a charge per unit built, to pay for recreational features.

Some of the other features will see the homes and townhomes pre-wired to allow electronic vehicle charging.

Final reading got unanimous council support, although Coun. Gordy Robson had previously considered delaying the project until the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure did more extensive improvements to the Haney Bypass between 222nd Street and Kanaka Way.
