Silver Valley residents in Maple Ridge may soon have the convenience of businesses just a short walk or bike ride away. The Maple Ridge council is currently reviewing a new commercial/residential development proposal on Fern Crescent.
Situated at the intersection of Fern Crescent and Balsam Street, the development occupies a vacant 0.9-hectare (2.33-acre) plot and serves as the gateway to Golden Ears Provincial Park. Its location also places it directly across from Maple Ridge Park.
The proposed project encompasses a four-storey building that combines 95 apartment units with approximately 33,400 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. The council has reviewed architectural drawings that depict various amenities such as a cafe, restaurant, fitness center, market, and pharmacy. The applicant for the development is a numbered company.
