New Whitehorse subdivision lots up for sale next month
Planners estimate Whistle Bend will house 8,000 people
Yukon Community Services Minister Elaine Taylor unveiled plans Thursday to put more than 100 building lots up for sale next month in the Whistle Bend subdivision.
It's the first phase of the $250 million subdivision — the biggest in Yukon history.
"Whistle Bend subdivision is certainly the largest-ever development project ever to be undertaken in the territory and will certainly go a long way to meeting building lot requirements in the City of Whitehorse in the many years ahead," Taylor said.
The Whistle Bend lottery includes 90 single family building lots, plus 15 multi-family properties. Prices start at $104,000 for single family lots. Duplex lots are priced from $152,000.
Whistle Bend is named after a curve in the Yukon River below Whitehorse. The streets are all named after Yukon's historical sternwheelers.
Planners say when it's finished, Whistle Bend will accommodate about 8,000 residents.
Lottery packages will be available Sept. 5, with a draw planned for Sept. 26.
