A mixed-use development proposing 186 condos and townhomes, 80 purpose-built rentals and commercial and light-industrial spaces is headed to the public hearing next week.
The public hearing for the Centennial Way mixed-use development will take place at 6 pm on February 18 at the municipal hall.
The developers, Anthem Properties, wants to rezone the three parcels on Centennial Way, the site of the former Whistler Punk Hollow golf course.
Anthem is proposing to build what the Squamish OCP identifies as a “Neighbourhood node”, which will include employment space, condos and townhomes with purpose-built rental apartments, childcare, car share and bus stop, public paths, trails, green space and public art.
Anthem is proposing 107 townhomes, 79 condos, 80 purpose-built rental apartments, of which 23 units will be affordable rentals secured through a housing agreement.
The project is spread over three sites and development will happen in phases.
Services such as a café, along with small offices such as of doctor, lawyer and sports medicine, are being proposed on the north south side. Small-scale businesses and technology firms and professional offices will be located on the north as well as the south site.
The light industrial building could be used for apparel development, sports equipment manufacturing, coffee roasting, a bakery or a brewery.
The neighbourhood’s primary intersection at Loggers Lane and Centennial Way would be upgraded with a roundabout design paid for by the developer.
