Delta residents voice their views on major redevelopment plan

Other residential applications could also see the corridor further transformed
The first public information session on the Delta Shoppers Mall redevelopment proposal this Tuesday had a steady turnout.

The first of several public information meetings on a major redevelopment proposal on the Scott Road corridor saw a steady turnout Tuesday morning.

The information session at the North Delta Community Centre for the proposed Delta Shoppers Mall redevelopment was an opportunity to learn more and provide feedback on the application to build a mixed-use high-rise development at the strip mall, located at 8037 to 8087 Scott Road. The proposal includes four buildings ranging from six-to-32 storeys with 876 residential units.

The proposal also includes 10,572-square-metres of office space, 7,178-square-metres of commercial space as well as childcare space.

Coun. Rod Binder was on hand at the first session Thursday, telling residents who wanted to speak to him that council is listening to both sides and that he’s reading every piece of correspondence, including e-mails, in support and opposition.

According to the city, the rezoning application is consistent with the Official Community Plan, so a public hearing is not required. The city has placed several electronic reader boards throughout the North Delta, advertising the information sessions.

The redevelopment plan is one of several approved or still in an application process that would see a major transformation of the Scott Road corridor.

Down the street from the Shoppers property is the site of another high-density residential proposal, located at Scott Road and 119A Street.

The proposed redevelopment at 7702 and 7740-119A Street would see a multi-unit project with 283 residential units. The development would include two, six-storey condo buildings, one fronting Scott Road and the other oriented towards 119A Street.

Another application expected to be submitted this year is the redevelopment of the North Delta Inn property by the corner of 70th Avenue and Scott Road.

Community planning director Marcy Sangret told council earlier this year the owner has been working with city staff on potential residential concepts and an application is expected.

Council agreed to extend a temporary use permit for a liquor store to continue operating at the site while the owner works on a redevelopment plan.
