In December 2021, Port Moody Council approved the zoning and policy changes for Woodland Park/Portwood.
Formerly known as Woodland Park, Portwood is the new name of the future complete community. The redevelopment will take place over the next 15 - 20 years, transforming the site into a master planned, well-served community with an innovative mix of housing (including affordable housing, market rental, and strata), 2 new city parks, child care and neighbourhood retail.
The project is planned to be phased starting with the area north of Angela Drive. The development permits for the first two phases north of Angela Drive were approved in October 2022.
The next steps include obtaining building permits for these two phases We will continue to keep the community updated at key milestones during the design process.
Woodland Park is approximately 24 acres, with 20 existing buildings and 10 surface parking lots which were built in the 1960s. There are currently 200 market rental units. The site is steeply sloped, from Cecile Drive to Clarke Road, with a vertical drop of approximately100 feet. The site also contains a significant amount of environmentally sensitive areas (ESAs) (22% of the total site area).
Woodland Park is situated among some of Port Moody’s greatest green space, close to schools, recreation facilities, and a 20-minute walk to neighbourhood shops and services.
