In a media release, the owners of Nelson Landing want to reach out to developers and builders in Nelson to invite them to express their creative ideas on the lakefront triple-A property.

After experiencing a very successful launch with their property in Lantzville, Storm Mountain Development Corp. now wants to explore all options with it’s property in Nelson.

The release said this opens a rare opportunity for local buyers to create their own visions for a development on prime real estate in Nelson.

“We want to ensure we reach out and give every opportunity to developers and builders who have been wanting a place in the Nelson area but haven’t found the right option with so few similar properties available,” says Allard Ockeloen, CEO of Storm Mountain Development Corp.

The proposed development is located along the lakeshore near the former Kootenay Forest Products dock, heading north toward Red Sands beach.

The land in question — vacant since KFP closed in 1984 — has been a topic of development at Nelson City council table for years in various incarnations, changing ownership several times in the process.

“It’s a premium development site. We see this as an opportunity to create some sort of destination property,” says realtor Ben Hurlbutt. The property has been zoned for multi-family residential, commercial and recreation destination. 

“The entire 13-acre property is for sale, but we also wish to speak with people who do not want to commit to such a large-scale project; who may wish to take on a more manageable portion of the project.”

“We’re interested in hearing from anyone who has any interest and ideas on what to do with the land,” says Allard.
