The property has an area of about 306 acres and is located in the southwest corner of Invermere. It is bound to the north by Johnston Road and Abel Creek that are located in a natural ravine that is being dedicated as an environmental reserve. It is bound to the east by undeveloped crown land that is proposed as a regional park and to the south/west by undeveloped private lands.
The property is located on the benchlands above the historic limits of the Columbia River floodplain. The terrain has been shaped by glacial activity ravines and gullies carved into the glacial moraine as well as ridges and drumlins of glacial moraine mounded above the benchlands. There are occasional outcrops of sedimentary bedrock.
The location and natural beauty of this site is a wonderful opportunity for the development of a residential estate community in a natural and rustic mountainous setting with urban servicing convenience. The views of the Columbia River valley and the Rocky Mountain panorama are framed by the natural terrain and tree cover of the site.
The estate community will be designed to achieve residential development in a natural setting and rural context. The natural ravines and escarpments will be retained in their natural state. A network of open space linkages will be provided to support passive recreational pursuits.
Roads will have a rural cross-section and significant tree clusters will be retained within rights-of-way. Disturbance to building lots and sites will be minimized and retention of the natural terrain and tree cover will be maximized.
Of the 306 acres forming the property, about 162 acres or 53% will be used for residential and commercial development. About 36 acres or 12% is being retained within the agricultural land reserve and another 58 acres or 19% is being dedicated as natural open space.
Approximately 1,000 residential units in a mixed single family and multi-family format will be provided. It will also have a centrally-located and complementary neighbourhood commercial area.
The development will include about 550 single family lots ranging in size from 10,000 to 15,000 square feet. The nine multi-unit residential sites will accommodate about 450 townhouse and condo style units with densities in the range of 10 to 15 units per acre.
The first phase of development will be focused in the geographic center of the property. Subsequent phases of development will extend radially from this geographic core.
All aspects of the estate community will be governed by Development Guidelines to ensure that the development property embraces the alpine theme, provides an aesthetic environment for the residents and delivers real estate value to the property owners. The Development Guidelines will form a statutory building scheme that will registered against the titles of all lots and sites.
The guidelines will specify the extent to which lots and sites can be disturbed for the purposes of building and house construction. The intent is to limit the disturbance of the natural terrain and tree cover.
The guidelines will outline the preferred choices for size and appearance of the residential units. The theme will be alpine style. Preferred materials will include metal or tile roofing; rough sawn timber beams and columns, wood battens, horizontal wood siding and shakes, wall cladding; stone and rock accents; and other such complementary products.
All residents of the estate community will be members of the CastleRock Estates community association. This association will provide an enhanced level of service to the residents, control the natural open space areas and administer the development guidelines.
