BIG NEWS from the Comox Valley Echo June 10, 2005! Just look at what this developer is willing to do for Union Bay – Isn’t it great? Imagine what Union Bay will look like in 15 to 20 years! Oh, oh – what happened?
July 2011 right after the 2011 Water Infrastructure Agreement was signed. Ready to go!
Here’s another chuckle from the President of Kensington Island Properties, aka 34083 Yukon Inc, Kensington Coastal Pointe, Kensington Coastal Point, Union Bay Resorts, The Union Bay Community, Union Bay Estates. Sort of contradicts what the VP has been publicly stating. The VP claims there were hurdles preventing the development going ahead and that’s why nothing has been done. Funny, according to President Jim Youngren in his letter, which was visible for a number of years until finally being taken down in late 2017, the project was ready to go and all the zoning approvals and “heavy lifting” was done.
Almost 13 years later – BIG NEWS – AGAIN! Hmmm… those promises to the community seem to have gone poof – just like everything else KIP has promised. How come there is no mention of the golf course anymore? This is the fourth article about this recycled development that fails to mention any golf course.
Development in Union Bay being called the largest on the Island north of Victoria
After 19 years of setbacks, including legal challenges and other delays, Kensington Union Bay Properties has announced it’s moving ahead with an iconic 346-hectare development.
The construction situated in Union Bay, south of Courtenay, is being called the largest development of it’s kind outside of Greater Victoria.
When the several phases are completed it will include just under 3,000 residential units, a new marina, two hotels and numerous other amenities.
The current population of about 1,200 people could grow to over 10,000 when the final phases are finished.
WATCH: Kensington Union Bay Properties Vice President Brian McMahon talks about a new 346-hectare development in Union Bay.
The first phase which will include commercial buildings and waterfront improvements are expected to begin this spring.
