ST. JOHN'S, March 9 /CNW/ - Canada Lands Company (CLC) today announced
that, in close collaboration with the City of St. John's, it is about to begin
a master planning process for its Pleasantville property in the east end of
the city. The 80-acre (32-hectare) site is located in close proximity to the
downtown core and features views of the Bally Haly Golf Course to the north
and Quidi Vidi Lake to the south.
CLC has been meeting over the past several months with City of St. John's
officials to review the planning process for the site. As part of these
preparations, CLC has hired Tract Consulting of St. John's to assist with
creating a vision and master development plan for the site.
"In keeping with CLC's business philosophy, the planning process will
include extensive public consultations, giving the community the opportunity
to contribute to the development of the vision for this site", said Ron
Pachal, CLC General Manager, Real Estate, Atlantic. City of St. John's
officials will continue to assist CLC with development plan preparations and
will facilitate the redevelopment process. "The City of St. John's looks
forward to continuing its good working relationship with CLC in order to
create a positive and lasting landmark development for city residents", added
Mayor Andy Wells.
Information on the master plan development process and related public
events will be announced shortly.

financial and community value obtained from surplus properties no longer
required by the Government of Canada. The company is self-financing and
implements innovative property solutions to create strong and competitive
communities where it operates. Since its inception, it has distributed
