South Pointe plans shed light on growth

  • Print

Ladco Company Limited (Ladco) has created an attractive new community at the southern tip of Waverley West called South Pointe.  


South Pointe already includes many lovely new homes, and it is anticipated that someday there will be a commercial development in the area.  


David Borger, vice-president of development with Ladco, described the progress:


 "We are servicing Stages 5 and 6 right now, and we are trying to get the roads completed by the end of October of this year.  Next year we could service another 220 lots in Stage 7".  


Houses will be built in Stage 7 in 2014 and work could be substantially completed by the end of 2015 (with some outstanding lots).  


It is expected that Ladco’s lands on the west side of the Kenaston Boulevard extension would see home construction beginning in 2015.  


Borger said that the development "depends on the market staying as strong as it has, we have been very pleased with the way it has been progressing".


Michael Carruthers, Ladco’s manager of land development, provided a map of the Waverley West Arterial Roads Project Timeline along with an overview of the roads project:  


"Kenaston is expected to be extended through to the Perimeter Highway by the end of 2014" according to the City of Winnipeg plans.  


There will be some changes to Waverley Street, including realignment in a westerly direction to the proposed Kenaston Boulevard extension and ultimately all the way to Brady Road. The north access of the existing intersection of Waverley Street and the Perimeter Highway is also expected to be decommissioned.


Carruthers says "the Province and City are working on the plans for what the Waverley intersection will look like".


He added that "Ladco is working on plans for Phase 2 of South Pointe where there is 640 acres west of Kenaston Boulevard for both commercial and residential development.


"There are 1,400 residential lots in Phase I of South Pointe and approximately 50 acres around the Kenaston extension for community commercial development".


Borger notes they may "mirror Kenaston with two additional commercial sites".  


Community commercial sites could include supermarkets, drugstores, retail, gas stations and medical offices, but exact retailers will not be known until the residential development is completed.


There is also land reserved for a potential school site in the eastern part of South Pointe that is subject to provincial government approval.


Carruthers says "it is our understanding that the Province and the Pembina Trails School Division have been working diligently on plans for education in Waverley West and we are very confident that decisions will be made that will benefit the residents of South Pointe and all of Waverley West".
