Redevelopment Incentives for Historic Downtown – District of Mission, BC

Coriolis assisted the District of Mission in the creation of a package of incentives to encourage mixed use redevelopment in the historic Downtown.  Drawing on this experience, Coriolis has been approached by several other small communities, including Sechelt and Harrison Hot Springs, regarding tools that local government can use to help encourage redevelopment and densification in older commercial districts.

All conditions have now been satisfied, and the sale is scheduled to close in mid February.
