At JEA we have had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients.
A team of land surveyors and civil engineers at J.E. Anderson & Associates have been working on subdividing Ittatsoo Bay Development, a spectacular 176-acre property located northeast of Ucluelet with stunning south-east exposure featuring views towards the Broken Islands. The approximately 40 gorgeous residential lots at Ittatsoo Creek and Newcombe Channel range in size from five to 10 acres. Many of these rural residential lots are waterfront with fantastic beach access and water views.
As a leading land development consulting firm on Vancouver Island, J.E. Anderson’s team provided planning, surveying and engineering services for the project. The project has some lots registered and sold. The last 25 lots are in the planning phase and the owners, Wild Pacific Developments, are seeking preliminary approval to subdivide, given that the zoning is already in place.
“It is an exciting opportunity to work on a project of this complexity and sheer size in a region that has not been touched by much development,” says Phil Buchanan, P.Eng, Partner and Senior Engineer at J.E. Anderson’s Victoria office. “At J.E. Anderson, we have solid expertise and many decades of proven experience and success to offer land developers. We look forward to seeing families one day move into homes on small acreages in this pristine region.”
Professionals from J.E. Anderson are currently working on site investigation and project supervision to establish suitable soil conditions and well water supply to support the proposed lots. The site has soil and water table challenges that make it challenging to meet the Subdivision Standards that are regulated by the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Previous studies by two other engineering groups have been completed, but the reports were not conclusive and did not lead to subdivision approval. J.E. Anderson has been retained to closely review the site’s soil conditions, drainage and proposed lot layout.
“There are a few different approaches we can use to align a nice development with the opportunities that are available,” says Buchanan.
The entire parcel of land offers old-growth forests, multiple beaches, high-bank waterfront, ocean and mountain views, private mooring, and easy access to recreation. For more information about this stunning 157-acre property for sale, visit Mieke Dusseldorp of Re/Max in Ucluelet’s website.
