District of Squamish will decide on granting a development permit for the south side of the Redbridge development on Highway 99.
The property is located on the east side of Highway 99 between the main Valleycliffe and Downtown highway intersections, and will be developed in six phases.
The most recent development permit is for the south side of the property, which included phases one to four of the development.
The south site for the first phase will consist of three apartment buildings, 24 townhouses, commercial retail and the provision of indoor and outdoor space, according to a staff report.
The three apartment buildings will have 141 one- and two-bedroom units, 33 three-bedroom units and guests suites.
According to the staff report, the development of Phase 1 will trigger public amenities that will need to be provided before any development takes place.
These amenities include a multi-use pathway along the Mamquam Blind Channel, upgrades to the existing steep Valleycliffe trail slope, and a new transit stop as well as upgrades to Upper Scott Cres, and Clarke Drive road ways.
The developer will also upgrade the current Corridor Trail along this highway frontage and build a pedestrian bridge.
The developer has also committed to the district to build a public play area, which wasn’t part of an earlier plan.
The site will be accessed by a right-in right-out off the highway, but it will also be accessed through lower and upper Scott Crescent through to Clarke Drive.
More than 400 apartment units will be built over the years in different phases.
