New Westminster wants to zone a couple of pieces of vacant land in Queensborough before the province sells them.

More than a decade ago properties in the area were expropriated by the Transportation Ministry to accommodate new interchanges to Highway 91A and Queensborough Bridge between 2003 and 2009. But with the work long since completed two parcels are no longer needed. Since they were classified as roads the city hadn’t officially zoned them.

The asking price for 2.23 acres at 1050 Boyd Street is $3.7 million. It’s a piece of land across from Lowe’s wedged in between the highway, Howes Street and Boyd. The new Queensborough Community Plan designates the property for light industrial uses.

The other lot is 1.2 acres at 1005 Ewen Ave., next to the Queensborough fire station. The asking price is $2.8 million.

The property has been designated as Queensborough Main Street, a mix of commercial, office and residential, in the community plan.
