Mission’s largest waterfront property listed for sale online

Braich family’s 87 acres listed as ‘large-scale development site’ on Goodman Commercial’s website

The largest property owners on Mission’s waterfront have thrown up the “for sale” sign online for their 87 acres.

The Braich family’s property at 7011 Herman S. Braich Blvd. has recently been listed as a “large-scale development site” on Goodman Commercial’s website.

“Goodman Commercial is excited to announce the unprecedented opportunity to acquire one of Fraser Valley’s last remaining large-scale waterfront development sites, affording over a 1 km stretch of land adjacent to the Fraser River,” the listing says.

The 86.72 acres exactly is composed of eight individual land titles, and the listing highlights the lack of rezoning required, location, view, and the future development of the surrounding 296-acre area currently under the Mission Waterfront Revitalization plan.

There is no price listed for the lands, but Kenny Braich said the sale will be decided through a bid at a later date.

Just under 600,000 cubic metres of sand – dredged out of the Fraser River for the construction of the city’s sewer forcemain project – has been used to elevate the Braich property to the flood-construction level.

Other development areas in the 296 acres of Mission’s waterfront will likely require land assemblies to raise them to flood-safe levels.

The family received the sand in exchange for allowing the forcemain run through their property.
