Work is beginning on a new condo project along Scott Road, but much more development along the corridor could be on the way.
Already almost completely sold out, the 182-unit “Scott & Nicholson” complex at 6950 Nicholson Rd., facing Scott Road, will comprise two buildings with one and two bedroom units, with sizes ranging from 573 to 1410 square feet. The development also includes six townhomes.
To be built all at once and not in phases, the project will be built where an old strip mall is being torn down.
Located next to the vacant North Delta Inn site, which is expected to have a high-density residential development submitted to the city in the next few weeks, the project’s location was a big selling point for the developer.
Jit Sangha with Realco Holdings said the project proved so popular that they almost sold out within four months after hitting the market last summer, and only a handful are being withheld for now.
Meanwhile, the City of Delta recently put out a call for volunteers to sit on the newly formed Scott Road Housing Task Force.
The development advertised as having 'clean sophistication' sold out quickly last summer.
The purpose of the task force is to provide recommendations to council on directions and specific initiatives to promote the development of diverse and affordable housing options on the Scott Road corridor area and add certainty regarding future land use.
Mayor George Harvie announced the plan following the defeat of the controversial 35-storey high-rise application at Scott Road and 75A Avenue.
The previous city council had already approved changes to the North Delta Area Plan encouraging more high density.
That plan focuses on the concentration of growth strategically focused on four key areas: the Scott Road Corridor, the Nordel Social Heart, 84th Avenue and 72nd Avenue.
