The CONNECTED CORE of the Burquitlam Neighbourhood
Burquitlam Plaza will become a lively and attractive neighbourhood hub at the nexus between Burnaby and Coquitlam, featuring a diversity of housing options supported by local services and amenities; well-connected through a human-scaled & integrated public realm.
The redevelopment of Burquitlam Plaza will permit the site to realize its potential as a Transit-Oriented hub location. While significantly improving access to transit from the new YMCA, park, and residential neighbourhoods to the east and north, Burquitlam Plaza will transform the east side of Clarke Road, increasing services and amenities to the entire neighbourhood through its enlivened and active guideway, plazas, landscaping, and exciting new commercial and residential spaces.
Building on the success of investment in regional rapid transit and recent growth within the area, Burquitlam Plaza will be a sustainable, connected and inclusive area that authentically communicates the values of the community through great design.
