Your Guide to Burquitlam – Coquitlam’s Fastest Growing Neighbourhood

If you’re dreaming of living in close proximity to nature while having all the conveniences of an urban lifestyle at your doorstep, keep on reading! Over the past decade, both Coquitlam and Burnaby have grown immensely, as each city has experienced their own neighbourhoods burgeoning and developing. One of those neighbourhoods is Burquitlam – at the junction of Burnaby and Coquitlam, Burquitlam is the fastest up-and-coming neighbourhood in Coquitlam and we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about Highpoint and this bustling neighbourhood.


As a transit-oriented neighbourhood, you’re just steps away from affordable and convenient transit like buses, the Evergreen SkyTrain and the Westcoast Express commuter rail train, providing fast access to downtown Vancouver – or, just about anywhere you need to get to in the Lower Mainland. At the centre of many of the Lower Mainland’s hot spots, Burquitlam puts you close to Simon Fraser University (SFU), Lougheed Town Centre, Burnaby and Surrey, making the commute to and from work or school easier than ever.


If you’re looking for a combination of rural/urban living, look no further. Burquitlam is within minutes of stunning parks, lakes and trails, including Rocky Point Park, Burnaby Lake and Como Lake, providing a mixture of gorgeous greenspace and downtown vibes. The neighbourhood is also home to several parks, including Brookmere, Miller and Mountain View Parks, and there’s no shortage of activities for the kids with nearby playing fields, baseball diamonds and playgrounds. And, when the heatwaves hit, you can take the kids to Blue Mountain Park to cool off in the spray park and wading pool.


Burquitlam will be experiencing major growth in the next 25 years, with over 9,000-10,000 new homes being added to the area and an additional 15,000 new residents moving to Burquitlam, according to the Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan (BLNP). Another exciting development on the horizon is a 55,000 sq. ft. YMCA complete with an aquatic centre, fitness gym, daycare, multi-purpose space, studio, and café to make your work-life balance more enjoyable than ever.

And, while you await the arrival of the many upcoming developments in the area, you can immerse yourself in the culture and history that set the foundation for Burquitlam. Explore North Road’s Koreatown to get a taste of the culinary delicacies in the area, visit the Vancouver Golf Club, recognized as one of the finest private 18-hole championship courses in the Pacific Northwest, or treat yourself and visit the Executive Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre, which features a piano lounge, live entertainment and a pub next door. What more could you ask for?


Burquitlam is thriving and we aren’t surprised, considering the area’s bright future and current opportunity for investment. Ledingham McAllister’s Highpoint is rising in this fruitful area and we could not be more excited to watch the neighbourhood flourish over the next few years.

Highpoint will soar 52-storeys and boast 16,000 sq. ft. of upscale amenities, just steps from the SkyTrain and all of your day-to-day essentials.
