New Development Series | Collingwood to Craigleith, Blue Mountains
Collingwood is one of the fastest growing communities in Canada. In 2017, the Province identified our area as a growth node and the Simcoe County official plan states that we must achieve a target population of 33,400 by 2031 and have a density of 50 people per hectare. In this Development Series I examine the numbers and development plans for future development.
More than 6,600 units are currently in some stage of planning in the area of Collingwood to Craigleith. Multi-unit dwellings such as townhomes and apartments out number single-family homes by more than 3 to 1.
How many households do we have now in Collingwood? The 2016 census stated 10,500 private dwellings and if all new planned units came to fruition, that would mean we would have 62% more households.
In this post, we look at a development proposal in Collingwood that would allow short term rentals.
Bridgewater on Georgian Bay is propsing 655 units made up of 539 townhomes and 116 apartment units on Highway 26 backing onto Princeton Shores Boulevard in Collingwood.
Panorama North is a proposal for a 929 dwelling unit plan of subdivision on 50 acres on the north side of Mountain Road and the Tenth Line.
Aqua Village, Craigleith proposal calls for 340 units, shops, restaurants and potentially rental apartments as well.
Craigleith Ridge by Parkbridge is developing a new community of approximately 200 units on 65 acres.
Along Highway 26 from Collingwood to Craigleith over 2600 new dwelling units are in some stage of development and/or discussion.
