In our ongoing quest to transform communities and create places that matter, icona is exploring a new vision for the lands known as Anmore South. We are seeking to collaborate with Anmore residents to create a future the community can be proud of— a future that further enhances this already extraordinary place.
This 150-acre parcel of land is situated in the southwest corner of Anmore, a village community located to the north of Port Moody and touching the shores of the Indian Arm.
Despite its small size, Anmore South has the potential to transform the quality of life for village residents. While the current land designation already allows for one-acre, single-family lots, we want to start a dialogue and explore an alternative path forward with residents that would redefine the purpose of this unique and vital place.
As the owner of Anmore South, icona is excited to collaborate with residents on a vision for the future of these important lands.
Early conversations with residents have told us they want housing diversity that gives them options for downsizing, aging in place and to attract young families. They want a vibrant community that brings daily amenities such as a market, shops and cafés closer to home. They want direct connection to the regional water supply and investment in wastewater infrastructure. They want world-class building innovation and design. And they want to preserve and enhance the natural environment, with protections for local ecology and nature trails that make the forest more accessible for all.
We are listening to those ideas and used them to establish a starting point for a new vision for Anmore South.
As part of our vision for Anmore South, we are committed to gifting a new protected park more than six times the size of Rocky Point Park — one of the largest bequests of stewarded forests and waterways ever gifted by a land owner within the Tri-City area in recent history. Further, icona will also establish an endowment to fund ongoing stewardship and preservation of these lands.
