Christie Point Advocates Launch Website
View Royal, BC — Christie Point Advocates, a working group calling for a responsible and inclusive redevelopment of Christie Point, announce the launch of their new website: www.christiepointadvocates.com. The website is an online community resource which also includes a survey and a petition.
Christie Point is a 161-unit, 2-storey apartment rental complex located in View Royal, BC. Toronto-based owner, Realstar Management, has submitted a rezoning application to the Town of View Royal. Realstar intends to redevelop the complex into 473 units, with buildings ranging from 4-6 storeys. Christie Point Advocates are concerned about displacement, affordability, and increased traffic to the area, amongst other topics.
Christie Point Advocates “seek a viable dialogue with Realstar and the View Royal Town Council – one that will genuinely address the considerations at hand – so that residents, the immediate environment, and the surrounding neighbourhood are properly protected throughout the redevelopment process.”
Christie Point Advocates are also encouraging View Royal residents to attend the View Royal Town Council meeting on Tuesday, January 17th at 7 pm, where they will be speaking about Realstar’s plan and their concerns regarding the project.
