Moody Centre TOD planning — Open House #2, March 1, 2017

Updated, post open house: Presentation boards from the March 1st open house are now available, as well as an online feedback form at the city webpage for Moody Centre TOD plan.

The city’s recommendation is for Scenario B, with an estimated future residential population of 4,002, and a floor area ratio (FAR) of 2.55.

Current population for the area is identified as: “~8-12 residents and 145 businesses (43 on Spring St. + 102 on St. Johns St.)”

The Scenario B concept suggests 13 buildings as follows: 4×6 storeys, 5×26 storeys, and 4×40 storeys (higher than any existing Port Moody towers), well above the OCP baseline.

The FAR is also higher than any of the other areas identified in the presentation chart: Klahanie (1.96), Newport Village (2.06), Suterbrook (2.20), and Coronation Park Concept (2.35).

Feedback is requested by Friday, March 17. Click on link above for more information and feedback form.

The Moody Centre Community Association (MCCA) welcomes your comments.

    No, No, No, No! We don’t want to just build tall buildings and completely destroy the character of our wonderful city. Before you know it, we’ll look just like Metrotown and New West and Vancouver and you get the picture. There are better ways to increase density without destroying all the main inlet view corridors for all of us on the hills above city central. Be more creative and stop with the big box mentality. It’s ugly, it increases traffic density to unbearable levels (think 24/7 volume delays), parking will be a nightmare and the list goes on.
