$83 Million Development For Gateway Site On the Agenda Monday Night

Sault Ste. Marie city council will learn more about a mixed use development planned for the Gateway site Monday night.

The bio-economy neighbourhood concept considers sustainability on many levels, from converting a brownfield site into a vibrant, mixed-use development. The project concept included a permanent visitors centre containing informative displays, interactive exhibits, and featuring guided tours to educate visitors about the project’s objectives, design, and sustainable practices.

Though no time-line is presented for the project, it will include residential apartments / condos to address the housing shortage in Sault Ste. Marie and will be made up of the following,

– Approximately 145,000 – 160,000 square feet for residential
accommodation. Mix of 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, and/or
– Approximately 12,000 square feet of amenities to support the residential
living environment.
– Approximately 26,000 square feet of commercial/retail space to support
businesses and personal support services.
– Approximately 5,000 square feet Visitors Centre to showcase urban
community living, alternative energy, forest sustainability and bio-economy

It should be noted that the pre-feasibility study is a conceptual document. Much more detailed planning and costing would be required for this development to proceed, and a developer would need to be identified to advance the project.

    Time to wake up and take control of the long out of control master disaster.
