Committee approves plan for for former sugar beet factory lands

  • Print

A new subdivision that will bring thousands of residents into the centre of the city passed its first political test.

The Bishop Grandin Crossing subdivision in Fort Garry was approved by the property and development committee this morning.

"It’s exciting to see that come on stream," Coun. Jeff Browaty, chairman of the property and development committee, said. "It’s a good-news story that will tie in to the transit-oriented development of phase two of rapid transit."

The new subdivision will see about 1,300 residential units constructed on the former sugar beet factory site, north of Bishop Grandin Boulevard between Pembina Highway and Waverley Street.

The project still needs approval from council.

Developers said the property will see a mix of commercial development that will include restaurants, office space and hotels.

The long-term plan includes extending Scurfield Boulevard east to Pembina Highway.
