The redevelopment of the Flavelle site will reflect the objectives of the Official Community Plan, which envisions the transformation of the site from general industry to a vibrant mixed-use community with connections to the water’s edge.
Reconnect the City’s historic centre with the oceanfront and create a vibrant and active water’s edge.
Support economic growth in the City by providing employment opportunities on a site connected to the region via rapid transit.
Create a complete community that brings together a mix of uses and respects the natural surroundings.
The Flavelle site occupies a prominent location in the city and acts as a bridge between Port Moody’s oceanfront and the rest of the community. The proposed redevelopment will reintegrate the water’s edge with the larger neighbourhood through the creation of a vibrant and welcoming public realm.
Some of the key elements will include:
A unique “made in Port Moody” boardwalk that is accessible for all users and offers diverse experiences and connections to the water’s edge.
Provision of park space and extensions to the existing shoreline trail, providing connections to Rocky Point Park.
Celebrate the site’s history through the reuse of industrial elements from the sawmill in the design of the site.
