Mount Castle Single Family Home Development, Cranbrook
Westcor was able to purchase one of the nicest parcels of development property in Cranbrook BC from the long time, Vancouver based ownership group. This Mount Royal site is a continuation of the original Mount Royal development whice is currently selling the last lots of that phase. Our Mount Royal Development will bring a fresh continuance of this beautiful and long time Cranbrook subdivision.
With amazing south and west facing lots, this property capitalizes on the spectacular view corridors including the amazing Columbia Valley sunsets. Westcor has about 220 lots planned in sizes ranging from 6,000 sq ft to 12,000 sq ft. The access to the community forest with all its recreation trails will be just off Mt Royal Close. Panorama Road enters the property on the North West end. This site is designed to meet the Fire Interface Rules for safety with dual access egress within 400 ft. the slope is mild and an easy walk site. Westcor will be “parking” out the tree cover and saving original mature trees where we can.
This subdivision was designed with middle income homeowners in mind; to live in a high quality, in–town location. Services are all close by including transit. The properties were designated for much smaller home sites, (about 300 plus lots), but Westcor has chosen to make the lots larger but not too large. Several lots back onto the community forest lands. The site has miles of crown land forest trails right next door for mountain biking and winter sports, or just a leisurely walk. The hospital and major parks are close by. This is a new part of Cranbrook, close to all amenities. Access to the highway is a short drive away.
New Home Construction
Westcor is a Licensed Residential Builder in the Province of BC. We also work with highly reputable builders local in Cranbrook available to build beautiful homes on this or any site. We will be both selling some lots and building some homes for new owners. Housing Lots in Cranbrook have been steadily being built out and inventory is at a 13 year low. Westcor will sell lots to other builders and homeowners with no require–to–build time frame for those that want to purchase a lot for future retirement. However, Westcor would like to see the subdivision built out within the next 10 years. In combination with this project, Westcor will be offering lots on Mount Castle utilizing the BC Housing HUB Affordable Home Ownership Program (AHOP) funding, converting renters into homeowners. The Mount Castle Development, along with our Sunset Ridge site for quality townhomes across the street on Panorama Drive, will help provide brand new quality homes for over 150 families currently renting. The AHOP program provides the purchaser with 10% of the property purchase price at 0% interest for 25 years to qualified purchasers. This Mount Castle part of the subdivision will be the first single family homes built under this new program in B.C.
