New community to house close to 1,600 residents
After a few trips to the drawing board, the new Airdrie community of South Point
has sketched its way to approval, and will be highlighted by a much-needed link in the city's road system.
Located on a 28-hectare plot east of Hillcrest, south of Morningside and 40th Avenue S.W. and west of the CP Rail tracks, the Vesta Properties' project will eventually host an estimated 587 residential units that will service close to 1,600 residents.
With questions over density allocations and housing mix, the original Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) was defeated by Airdrie council in September. A re-worked plan was approved in late January.
