The development site consists of five single-family parcels on the south side of St. Johns Street, west of Douglas Street.

One of the homes is the Martha Johnston Residence, built in 1908 and currently on the Port Moody Heritage Register. As part of the development, it would be restored, seismically upgraded and used as a medical clinic.
