Urban Expansion on the Horizon
Anticipating a surge of 90,000 new residents over the next 25 years, Coquitlam, currently home to over 144,000 people, is facing substantial and exponential growth. This expansion demands innovative gentle and high-density housing options to accommodate the influx of new residents. Transit-oriented areas like Burquitlam are predicted to shoulder 50% of this growth, while communities like Burke Mountain are expected to experience 21% of the urban growth in the coming years.
Effectively managing growth in livable attractive ways is crucial in producing a positive impact on the community. Ensuring that infrastructure and amenities, like parks, keep pace with the growth trajectory is equally important. As one of the fastest expanding cities in Metro Vancouver, Coquitlam is a growing concern – in the best kind of way!
Townline has long championed growth in the Coquitlam area, and continues to contribute to the city’s expansion through new investments. We are actively involved in various projects across the city, including BAND, Terrayne, Forester One and Two, Meridian, and initiatives from our sister company, TL Housing Solutions, which focuses on affordable rental developments including Como Lake and Hoy Creek.
