“The City of Port Moody is interested in developing two key parcels of land in Inlet Centre as part of ongoing plans to create a more complete neighbourhood, provide more public amenities, and create a broad range of housing choices. The two parcels are the former Fire Hall and current Works Yard sites, located at 200 Ioco Road and 3250 Murray Street. The Properties are well situated within an established development node, and supported by a significant investment in rapid transit with the opening of the Inlet Centre SkyTrain station. These Properties present a unique opportunity to provide a comprehensive landmark development, consistent with previous high-quality and successful developments.”
