The commercial site has a total land area of 18.5 acres (7.5 ha) with extensive highway frontage and access via a full movement signalized intersection at Oyster Sto’Lo Road and the Trans-Canada Highway.
The commercial area forms the core of the broader Oyster Bay neighbourhood development. Due to its excellent access, high daily traffic counts and short drive times to both downtown Ladysmith and Nanaimo, the site is ideally suited for commercial development.
With high demand for commercial space in the vicinity, immediate development of the commercial area will serve as an anchor for future residential, assisted living and tourism uses at Oyster Bay.
The commercial masterplan suggests the following uses:
- Grocery Store
- CRUs with second floor offices
- Service Station
- Auto-Use Buildings
