QUALICUM BEACH – The Town of Qualicum Beach has introduced a new tool for builders and developers.
It’s a 3-D model of uptown made up of aerial photos of the town. Director of Planning Luke Sales says there has been some interest already.
“We’ve had a few contacts from local builders and developers that were interested in playing around with the model,” he said. “Right now, we are still just figuring out how it fits into our development process.”
Down the road, Sales hopes to have more detailed images as they look at commercial development.
“They’re just grey or white blocks right now,” he said. “What I’d like to see is more accurate images that show what the facade on these existing buildings look like. It’s a tool to help people understand how things fit in on a street scape.”
Sales says the photos are available for developers and builders to use with their designing software.
