Municipally-owned single-family lots for sale

May 13, 2022

The District has completed the subdivision of three District-owned single-family residential lots (2517, 2523 and 2539 Rosebery Avenue) located south of Brissenden Park. As provided for in the BC Supreme Court decision, the District has also closed off the unused portion of road at 25th Street and Shamrock Place. That land will also be for park use and will enlarge the existing Brissenden Park.

The three residential lots have now been listed for sale with the zoning allowing for single-family homes consistent with the surrounding neighbourhood. An information package is available here to interested parties wishing to bid on any or all of the lots. Deadline to submit an offer: Monday, June 6, 2022 at 2 p.m. PST   

The sales proceeds from these lots will go directly to fund the District’s purchase of the last two of 32 waterfront properties at 1444 and 1448 Argyle Avenue. This will allow the District to complete the Waterfront Acquisition Plan which started in the late 1970s, and will increase public green space and allow the completion of the foreshore path from Ambleside Park to John Lawson Park. 

The Brissendens’ contributions to the community will continue to be recognized by retaining the existing Brissenden Park, and additionally by naming the new green space at 1444 and 1448 Argyle Avenue, Brissenden Waterfront Park.
