The approved Oceanfront District Master Plan will allow for the detailed planning process to open up a previously private and inaccessible 34 acre waterfront site. Up to 3,397 homes for families are approved in the Master Plan which will help address the lack of supply and affordability in the City and region. Port Moody residents will enjoy access to an extensive trail network and more green space on the oceanfront. The Oceanfront District Master Plan calls for 1.3 km of new recreational trails and a boardwalk along the water’s edge connecting to Rocky Point Park. The Oceanfront Master Plan will create space for over 1,000 jobs in light industrial, commercial, office, and retail space located within walking distance to the Moody Centre Skytrain Station of the Evergreen Line and the Westcoast Express.
