Mixed-use Projects


We specialize in market and financial feasibility assessment of mixed-use projects.  These projects are typically infill, high density and fairly complex in nature. As a result, these studies require expertise in a variety of land uses, financial assessments as well as development related services. Studies of this nature typically incorporate:


  • Economic base analyses

  • Demographic and socio-economic analyses

  • Population and employment projections

  • Land use needs and demands projections 

  • Public consulting, workshops and surveys

Some of our recent studies are:

Spruce Ridge Market and Development Strategy

Priddis, AB

  • Utilized qualitative research methodologies and focus group meetings to aid in determining the marketability of a self-contained and sustainable mixed-use development on approximately 2,100 acres of land

  • Utilized quantitative research methodologies to conduct a land use marketability study that identified the project's likely rates of absorption and market clearing prices for each component

Maple Ridge Rezoning

Maple Ridge, BC (Ongoing)

The highest and best use study examined the redevelopment options available for a 5 acre site in Maple Ridge, BC. The study recommended a comprehensive, mixed-use development of approximately 980,000 square feet incorporating business park space, office, retail, live-work, residential, assisted living and public amenity spaces. Due to the confined site and urban nature of the project, parking facilities and loading docks are planned to be located below grade. 

Andres Wines Site Disposition Strategy

Port Moody, BC (2005-2011)

The study examines the redevelopment options available for a former winery site in Port Moody by using the highest and best use analytic framework. It recommended approximately 650,000 square feet of mixed-use development incorporating various business park, retail, office, residential and public amenity spaces. Urbanics continues to work as project manager for Andrew Peller Limited, to assist in rezoning applications and to implement the preferred disposition of its land holdings.
