Preparation Of New Housing Development Underway In Coaldale

 
 

COALDALE: After years of delays and planning the Westgate Landing development in Coaldale is finally going ahead.


Developer Ken Harvie noted that they had to negotiate with the town to acquire all of the land, and they they just finished the process this spring.

 

Harvie then gave an outline of where they're at now, "We are installing all the underground deep utilities, so you're storm water and sanitary sewers. We will be doing the surface works, probably in about five to six weeks from now, which includes you're sidewalks and you're asphalt roads. The Shell utilities will follow shortly after in August."

 

The whole development should be complete within 24 to 30 months, with the first homes ready before this Christmas.

 

Harvie noted that once complete, the development will bring 85 new homes to Coaldale.

 

In early 2011 interview, Harvie stated a retention pond that exists on the Westgate Landing property would remain and it was expanded to hold more storm water to maintain the release rate stipulated by Alberta Environment. Also, a park will be developed around it. Harvey says the project will encourage architecturally detailed construction and upgraded amenities, with a "tot lot" to be included in the development.

Westgate Landing will be architecturally controlled, with multi-family units, including town houses and duplexes. However, 68 of the lots are for single family construction. According to Harvey, "Some of the lots back onto Land-O-Lakes Golf Course, which gives some interest to the development and those lots could be called Estate lots, since they will be a little bit deeper than a regular residential lot". He notes that people looking at the larger lots anticipate building more of an "executive style" home.
