133 market rental homes proposed next to Inlet Centre Station in Port Moody

Jan 19 2021, 12:34 pm

PC Urban has submitted a preliminary rezoning application to the City of Port Moody to redevelop a site next to SkyTrain’s Inlet Centre Station into a six-storey purpose-built market rental housing building.

The site at 3316-3330 Dewdney Trunk Road — the northeast corner of the intersection of St. Johns Street and Dewdney Trunk Road — is currently occupied by four single-family dwellings built between 1955 and 1970. To the north, the property’s edge is also next to the Canadian Pacific Railway corridor.

The proposal by NSDA Architects calls for 133 market rental housing units, including 52 one-bedroom units and 58 two-bedroom units.

A single underground level will provide 90 vehicle parking stalls. The total floor area is 112,196 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of 3.38 times the size of the 33,233 sq. ft. lot.

According to a city staff report, PC Urban is also looking at forming a land assembly for the four properties to the east at 3334-3340 Dewdney Trunk Road, but some owners of these properties are not interested in selling at this time.

The current application for 3316-3330 Dewdney Trunk Road mimics 3370 Dewdney Trunk Road — a six-storey building, with 229 market rental homes at the eastern end of the city block, currently under construction.

3370 Dewdney Trunk Road, also designed by NSDA Architects, is slated to reach completion by the end of 2021.

If the developer is able to acquire and redevelop the remaining mid-block properties on the city block, it would complete the redevelopment opportunities on the north side of the single city block stretch of Dewdney Trunk Road within Port Moody’s jurisdiction.

Just north of the SkyTrain station, Wesgroup has a proposal to redevelop the 14.8-acre “Coronation Park” site — currently occupied by about 60 single-family dwellings — into five towers up to 40 storeys.

There will be nearly 3,000 homes, including 2,770 condominium homes and 175 below-market rental homes.
