What people are saying about the new homes

Meghan Lahti, mayor of Port Moody —

“This project prioritizes diverse and equitable housing options, which is one of the objectives in our council’s strategic plan. We’re also pleased to be a part of this unique public-private partnership. By working together in new ways, we can ensure that Port Moody has a mix of housing that meets the diverse needs of current and future residents.”

Matthew McClenaghan, president, Edgar Development –

“It takes a village to build affordable housing in today’s environment and this is a great example of the public and private sectors working together with BC Housing to deliver housing. This new affordable rental offering is part of the 23-acre, master-planned Portwood community that will include more than 2000 new homes, child care, parks, and walking and bike paths. Together, this collaborative effort contributes to delivering a significant number of much-needed affordable homes in Port Moody.”
