vacant industrial landA 2020 Land Study identified 406 vacant, undeveloped properties that are currently designated for industrial use. Among these sites are a collective 42 hectares of properties individually measuring less than 0.5 hectares in size. The Study suggests these properties are limited in their potential for industrial development due to size.

This initiative will target these properties for residential infill instead. Working with an environmental engineer to identify the best candidates, the City would systematically assess land for compatibility with residential use. Priority will be given to land that is city-owned, serviced, and with little-to-no remediation required.

This will achieve faster processing times and ultimately bring more units online in the short-term. Properties deemed incompatible with residential use will be earmarked for land assembly, increasing their viability for industrial development while alleviating pressure on residential land within the settlement area.
