Port Moody Neighbourhoods: Moody Centre

Real Estate Sales Representative with for real estate results in the Tri-Cities.

Encompassing the south shore, Moody Centre is the focus of much of the future development activity in Port Moody due to the age of the existing housing stock, and is the City’s most diverse neighbourhood from a land use perspective.

Implementing transit-oriented development principles with respect to future transit stations to create a more compact, walkable community and reduce reliance on vehicles, is necessary to cope with the regional growth.

The primary residential area in Moody Centre is to the south of St. Johns Street, containing a mix of single-family homes, townhouses and apartments, and closely located to all urban amenities.

Moody Centre has a number of sub-areas, each of which has its own character:

  • Moody Centre Heritage Conservation Area and Heritage Character Area are located in Moody Centre from where a number of buildings are listed on the City’s heritage register.
  • Rocky Point Park acts as the major south shore access to the head of Inlet Park, which extends to Shoreline Park and Old Orchard Park on the City’s north shore.
  • The remainder of St. Johns Street outside of the Heritage Conservation Area is primarily commercial, although there are some residential land uses at both the eastern and western ends of the St. Johns Street corridor.
  • The light industrial area of Port Moody, which is largely made up of small manufacturers and distributors, is primarily located on Murray and Spring Streets. There are also areas currently zoned for light industrial use on St. Johns Street and on Clarke Street.
  • The waterfront industrial area is bounded on the east by the Mill and Timber sawmill site and on the west by Pacific Coast Terminals.

Old City Hall Port Moody

Moody Centre is home to the old City Hall, built in 1914 and transformed into the Port Moody Arts Centre in 1996, as well as many other heritage buildings. In order to encourage the preservation of heritage character homes, adaptive commercial re-use of existing residential buildings shall be considered if the building is located within the heritage character area of the City or if the building has been identified on the City’s heritage register.

Hi Margaret,

I prepare a word document with a Calibri font on my Mac 10.6.2, cut and paste, then upload photos.

Thanks for visiting and making such a nice comment Margaret.

Take care.
