The city is making a 1.6-hectare piece of land in Takhini North available to developers.

The $833,000 swath of land is large enough to accomodate 29 single-family lots, said city planning manager, Mike Gau.

However, it is zoned multi-family residential, meaning developers must build apartments, duplexes or townhouses.

“We envision a high-density area,” said Gau.

The land is located on Normandy Road near Takhini Elementary School and has never been developed.

The land could be developed either all at once or in phases, said Gau.

Bid packages for the land are now available at city call. The deadline for submitting a bid is October 14 at 2 p.m. (Vivian Belik)
