Residents of Prince Rupert got their first look at a massive multifamily residential development planned for the former Kanata School on Wednesday night, a project that could create up to 270 new housing units.

The Bryton Group outlined their plans to create up to nine three-storey buildings on the site, each of which includes 30 two or three bedroom units. The units would be stratified and each unit sold individually. Plans also call for a 90-foot forested strip to separate the development from residences on Crestview Drive and a new road to directly access Fredrick Street.

Stuart Ramsay of the Bryton Group said the company hopes to start construction this spring and is taking a phased development approach, meaning units would be built as needed. While Ramsay said the market would dictate the sale price of the large units, it is expected units could cost upwards of $250,000.

The project is currently undergoing rezoning to permit residential development, a condition of the sale of the site.
