Purchase & Development of Downtown Chilliwack Properties
On September 14, 2017, the City of Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (the Partners) issued a Request for Proposals for the Purchase and Development of Downtown Properties. The RFP closed on January 17, 2018 and proposals are under review.
This development site presents a unique opportunity for progress and potential for development in the downtown. Land uses within the surrounding area currently include a variety of retail, commercial, residential and mixed-use commercial/residential developments. These properties made available for sale by the Partners offer a unique opportunity to create an iconic legacy-style development that will showcase the Developer’s professional acumen and set a benchmark for subsequent development in the downtown.
The primary goal is to densify the downtown and provide an environment that would attract appropriate commercial and business activity as well as new residents to the downtown.
The Five Corners property comprises nearly the entire city block between Yale Road to the north, Princess Avenue to the south, Young Road to the west, and Nowell Street to the east. It therefore occupies a prime location at the City’s historic five corners intersection. It offers significant frontage along two of the City of Chilliwack’s most important and high volume roadways – Yale Road (10,000+ vehicles per day) and Young Road (nearly 7,500 vehicles per day).
