For more than a cen­tury, the 34-acre Flavelle sawmill op­er­ated just west of Rocky Point Park—but if a new de­vel­op­ment gets the go-ahead, it will be trans­formed into a mas­sive res­i­den­tial hub, with 11 tow­ers up to 38 storeys, re­tail and o ce spa­ces, a se­niors’ fa­cil­ity, com­mu­nity ameni­ties and more, as well as parks and a pub­lic plaza. Pre­vi­ous at­tempts to change the site’s in­dus­trial des­ig­na­tion have failed, and even if the project is ap­proved, con­struc­tion is still years away—but if it does go ahead, the more than 3,000 new res­i­den­tial units would mean a seis­mic shift for the sea­side com­mu­nity and a huge pop­u­la­tion boost.
