Oak Bluff West could expand to 900 homes in coming years

  • Print

If all goes as planned, Qualico Communities will eventually expand its Oak Bluff West development to include 900 homes.

Qualico’s vice-president of community development Eric Vogan said there are now 300 serviced lots, with 100 homes built on what was farmland not too long ago at the junction of Highways 2 and 3 in Oak Bluff.

"We’re expecting to get up to a pace of 60 to 80 homes per year," he said.

The development also includes 14 bungalow-style condominiums being constructed by Randall Homes.

The RM of Macdonald is looking at Qualico’s master plan for the subdivision, which will see residential growth toward Oak Bluff Community School.

"Oak Bluff will be a bigger town when it’s finished," Vogan said.

The subdivision’s sole access road now connects with Highway 3, but Vogan said future development includes plans for a second access with Highway 2.

He said the company’s plans include green space and pathways for walking and cycling.
"We have an active transportation plan that’s part of the master plan."

Qualico Development recently entered into a partnership with the Nature Conservancy designed to support the non-profit organization’s efforts to preserve wildlife and vegetation in specific areas within Manitoba.

Vogan said he really likes the program, because he recognizes that new residential and commercial development can cause habitat loss, and this partnership allows Qualico to help with the Nature Conservancy’s work.
