New Burquitlam Plaza includes towers up to 53 storeys

Burquitlam Plaza will be redeveloped by Morguard Investments in a major, mixed-use project with a focus on purpose-built rental homes.

A development permit application has been presented to Coquitlam city council for a 29-storey tower in the Maillardville neighbourhood.

The development, designed by Wilson Chang Architect for M.L Emporio Properties Ltd., will include 179 market residential units (122 market condominiums, 51 market rental and six below-market rental units).

The developer is proposing to partner with BC Housing as the operator and leaseholder for the below-market rental units, which will be offered at a minimum of 25% below-market rates.

There will be 9,524 sq ft. of commercial space in the podium, and 276 underground parking stalls.

The tower’s design draws inspiration from Maillardville’s economic and cultural heritage with metal panels of varying wood tones layered over a glass facade, evoking the patterns and colours of log storage on the nearby Fraser River.

The location, at Lougheed Highway and Blue Mountain Street, is currently occupied by two commercial buildings. It’s located within the Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan and is designated as a Neighbourhood Centre, which is envisioned as the high-density, mixed-use core of the neighbourhood.

The City of Coquitlam says a development sign was installed on the property on March 15, 2019 to notify the public of the proposed development, and no comments were received.
