How many new jobs is the project expected to bring?
Employment is a key priority for the City and for Moody Centre. We had initially envisioned some 1,400 jobs (850 office & light industrial, 550 retail) to be created onsite. Following feedback from the community, we refined the master plan concept and project an estimated 2,000 jobs on site (1,400 office & light industrial, 600 retail) with most increases in the office & light industrial category, which the people of Port Moody have indicated is a preference. This represents an office to retail job ratio of 2.33, which reflects Port Moody’s preference for higher-paying jobs in the community.
