Construction underway on large housing development near Highstreet in Abbotsford – Abbotsford News

Construction is underway on a large subdivision on Mt. Lehman Road that will see eight condominiums and 157 townhouses.

Highstreet Village is located at 3174 Mt. Lehman Rd. and 30530 Cardinal Ave., just north of the Highstreet Mall.

The project’s website says homes are “coming soon” and those interested can sign up for early access to information and updates.

When the project was first presented to council in July 2021, the plan called for seven mid-rise apartment buildings and 22 townhouse buildings, comprising 734 units.

The project received final council approval in September 2021. (Mayor Henry Braun backed out of any discussion of the matter as his brother owns property adjacent to the development.)

Townhouses consist of a mix of two-, three-, and four-bedroom units ranging in size from 1,317 to 1,819 square feet. Seven of the units include private rooftop amenity areas.

There will also be a two-story amenity building of nearly 3,000 square feet.

The apartment buildings are comprised of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units ranging from 500 to 974 square feet and include two-level underground parking.

The two parcels of land, totaling 12.5 acres, were sold to developers Alf and Bruno Wall – who are brothers – for $26 million in 2018.

The development is among major projects currently underway in this area, which also includes the Xchange Business Park at 3407, 3459, 3481 and 3583 Mt. Lehman Rd. It is one of the largest industrial developments in the city these last years.

The project includes eight buildings covering 1.2 million square feet of space.

These improvements include several traffic improvements along Mt. Lehman Road, Cardinal Avenue and the Fraser Highway.
