Fifty more lots have been made available for prospective homeowners in the Whistle Bend subdivision.

The Yukon government announced that a land lottery will be held for the lots, located in Phase 2, on June 23 at the Elijah Smith Building.

The lots are mostly grouped near the intersection of Casca Boulevard and Keno Way.

The first lottery is for 28 single-family homes, while the second is for 11 duplexes spread over 22 lots.

Prices for the residential lots range from $115,000 to $131,000, while property sizes range from 533 to 676 square metres.

Tenders will also be available for a commercial lot, located near the corner of Casca Boulevard and Whistle Bend Way, as well as six multi-family lots.

As of last month, 80 lots had been sold in Phase 1: 61 residential, 16 duplex and three multi-family, according to Ron Billingham, a spokesperson for the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources.

“It’s a systematic approach that we have at this time of year, to get lots on the market to keep a good inventory for people,” he said this morning.

He said he didn’t have any updated numbers on the number of lots sold in Phase 2 so far.

Applications will not be accepted after June 19 at 4:30 p.m., according to the department’s website.

Upon completion, Whistle Bend will house approximately 8,000 residents.
