Heavy equipment and crews from B&B Contracting begin offsite roadworks for Cloverdale West Village. Site servicing for sewer

Cloverdale West Village plans rolling along

Site servicing work has commenced. Over the next six months, crews will add roads, sidewalks, and sewer infrastructure for development.

Massive pieces of machinery began thundering along 57 Avenue last week, as workers started the next phase of the Cloverdale West Village project.

The site of the former Cloverdale Plaza Mall, torn down two years ago, is being redeveloped for a multi-phase residential and retail project.

Over the next six months, trucks, construction people will be working in the area, creating new roads and sidewalks, and adding the necessary sewer and water infrastructure needed for development.

Cars dodged a line of barrel-shaped orange cones as traffic along 57 Avenue between the Cloverdale Bypass and 175 Street was ushered past backhoes and other equipment.

Onlookers watched as crews tore up the asphalt to make way for a new water main.

The work is being done by B&B Contracting, a Surrey company specializing in general and infrastructure contracting.

The project consultant is Core Group Consultants.

Last December, when remediation work related to a former drycleaning operation, got underway. Fencing was put up around the site, bordered by the Bypass and 175 Street, between 57 and 58 Avenues.

The project’s first phase calls for a new home for Royal Canadian Legion Branch 6 in Cloverdale. The branch will get a 10,000 square-foot hall, plus 1,800 square feet of retail space to rent out as an ongoing source of revenue. There will also be four floors of residential space in phase one.

The projected start of construction is early 2014. The master plan is to develop several mixed-used commercial and residential buildings, with condos and town homes, built over several years.

The overall project developer for Cloverdale West Village is the Surrey City Development Corporation, along with Townline Housing Solutions, in collaboration with the Cloverdale Legion on phase one.

“Who the tenants will be, we won’t know for a long time,” said Jim Cox, SCDC president and CEO.

There are no plans to close down any roads while site servicing takes place.
