Nanaimo's New Home Subdivisions
This page lists new home developments (subdivisions) in Nanaimo, as well as residential lots for sale. See the property listings below, and farther down the page you'll find my updates on "What's building" in the Nanaimo area, with a list of new construction home projects that are (or will be) made available for sale.
New Homes and Lots in Nanaimo
Bare land strata: Some home developments look like a traditional "freehold" subdivision but are technically a strata. In these subdivisions, you DO OWN your lot and house 100%, but you also own and maintain a share of the infrastructure (sewer pipes, streetlights, roads). A bare land strata will also have bylaws, which may or may not impose usage-related and aesthetic requirements on the properties.
Upcoming Subdivision Projects around Nanaimo
Williamson Rd Subdivision
This 5 acre hillside property is between Hammond Bay Rd and the ocean, close to Piper's Pub and Fillinger Crescent. There are plans for a 20-lot subdivision; these homes will have sweeping south-facing views, looking across to the steep slopes above Lost Lake and Linley Valley. There is no additional information at this time!
(Sunview Rd addresses)
This is a great piece of land sloping south with panoramic mountain views, in an extremely central location just south of Long Lake (see image for rough location). Plans include about 25 lots, many of which will have detached duplexes (2 detached homes sharing a stratified lot, not much different from a "regular" home on its own lot). This will allow for the greatest density while still giving every resident their own house and a bit of yard. Did I mention the mountain views?
The land was cleared in 2019 and construction began in 2020. Five bare lots were sold through MLS in mid-2020 and (as of March 2021) three detached half-duplexes and a detached house have also sold, with more homes being listed for sale with addresses on the newly registered "Sunview Rd".

(1045 Harewood Mines Rd)
Rega Properties Ltd (developer of Meredith Courts and a lot of SFDs) has subdivided the 10-acre property at 1045 Harewood Mines Rd, and is building 23 single-family homes and 7 full duplexes. The plan includes dedicated park space beginning at the lower end of the property where there is a wetland, and extending up the ravine beyond the marsh to a flat forested area overlooking it all.
The location is on the way to "The Abyss", less than 1km south of Colliery Dams Park — accessible from the top of 7th St above John Barsby School.
As of August 2021 the roads are built and there are three houses nearing completion. At least one of those houses sold recently for close to one million dollars.

New Freehold Homes in Central Nanaimo
This development is VERY central, being close to the Northfield exit off the Nanaimo Parkway. The neighbourhood is sloped and enjoys some big mountain views.
The first phase of Arbor Park is called Perch, its homes built with a continuity of craftsman designs (reminiscent of the Hawthorne neighbourhood in the University District). The Perch phase sold out in late 2020, and the next phase might break ground in 2022.
Ridgeline of Cottle Place
These 24 units (duplexes, triplexes and single family homes) will be built on top of a ridge near Pipers Lagoon and Stephenson Point, near the border of Departure Bay and Hammond Bay. The ocean and island views will be spectacular.
I don't know anything about a timeline at this point - an application was made to the city in 2018 and approved, and then it was renewed in 2020.
I'll be keeping an eye on this development. If you'd like me to keep you updated, please contact me!
Sixteen new high-end homes overlooking a high bank oceanfront near Pipers Lagoon and Departure Bay. Home construction started around 2018 and continues today (February 2021). Addresses will be on Planta Rd, Tom Harris Dr, and Bonnie Dr.
Build your new home with the best outlook available. These bare land strata lots above Lantzville and Pleasant Valley offer luxurious views of the Salish Sea, North Nanaimo, Mount Benson, the BC Coastal Mountain range, the Winchelsea Islands, Nanoose Bay, Brannen Lake and Green Lake, and Rutherford Ridge.
