Whistle Bend is envisioned as a neighbourhood for 8,000 residents complete with transit service, a town square, retail shops, three schools, parks, greenspaces, and kilometres of paved and unpaved trails. The design builds on a Charrette Concept (2006) and Master Plan (2008) developed through public consultation, and incorporates smart growth, new urbanism, and sustainable design principles. The neighbourhood is being planned and constructed in 9 phases through a partnership between the City of Whitehorse and Yukon Government. Yukon Government is the owner and developer of this land.
Further background and history is available in the tabs on the left hand side of this page.
The City recently hired WSP to undertake planning and pre-design work for the Future Areas of Whistle Bend. This includes the central core, the 'fin', and the Ta'an Kwach'an parcel and surrounding area. The contract with WSP also includes concept design and consultation on the Town Square.
Stay tuned for consultation opportunities on the Town Square!
Whistle Bend is currently in Phases 3 and 4 of the project. Construction for Phase 3 began in spring 2017, with lots available Spring 2018. Detailed design work is currently underway for Phase 4 and 5 and construction may proceed by the end of 2018. Once complete, these phases will include amenities such as commercial development, paved trails, parks, easy access to schools, and landscaping.
