A new subdivision passed its first political test.
The Bishop Grandin Crossing subdivision in Fort Garry was approved Tuesday by the property and development committee.
"It's a good-news story that will tie in to the transit-oriented development of phase two of rapid transit," said Jeff Browaty, committee chairman.
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. It still needs council approval.
