Since 2019, Urban Strategies has been working collaboratively with the consultant team on a Master Plan for the former Saputo Dairyland site. The lands comprise approximately 19 acres, located adjacent to the SkyTrain rapid transit line within the Bainbridge neighbourhood of Burnaby.
Saputo’s relocation presents a multi-dimensional opportunity to transform this large industrial site into a complete community offering a mix of housing options, local employment, services and amenities at transit and pedestrian-oriented scales. The Master Plan process is occurring alongside the City of Burnaby’s development of a new Community Plan framework for the Bainbridge Urban Village, with which Urban Strategies has also been involved. The Saputo site will be a defining element of this contemporary Urban Village, acting as a gateway from the SkyTrain station and a catalyst for improved connectivity, stitching together the broader neighbourhoods and destinations within Bainbridge.
