Westhills Core

Client: Westhills Land Corporation
Completion Date: In Progress

On Point’s entire complement of civil engineering, planning, and surveying staff have coordinated the multiple stakeholders to establish and bring to construction the urban core at the heart of the Westhills development. The core design constitutes over 12 hectares of commercial and office space connected through a network of roads and pathways leading to the waterfront where visitors will have access to bus and rail transit hubs. The design team has maintained a strong focus on pedestrian and vehicle movements while developing a comprehensive plan which will invite businesses to the area while preserving the sensitive ecological value of the lakefront.

Detailed design has been completed for the first phase of the core, and construction began in early 2013 on roads and servicing the first anchor-tenant, the YMCA.  Stormwater management throughout the core leads to a specially designed linear wetland. This design was chosen in order to reduce risk of  sediment reaching Langford Lake while providing important habitat to numerous native species .
