OVERVIEW

Coming to Burquitlam Town Centre, steps from Sky Train, is a master planned community sitting on a natural rise with views in every direction. The project draws inspiration from the West Coast environment in which it is set, adjacent to Burnaby Mountain with views to the North Shore Mountains and Port Moody’s Burrard Inlet juxtaposed against an emerging Coquitlam urbanism. The four towers have been placed orthogonally to the surrounding streets of Como Lake, Clarke and the new Lea street extension. Each tower has a unique expression but they all share a similar design language of linear and rectilinear elements, hovering volumes set above high volume glazed lobbies or retail / residential podiums.

ARCHITECTURE RATIONALE

The project draws inspiration from the West Coast environment in which it is set, adjacent to Burnaby Mountain with views to the North Shore Mountains and Port Moody’s Burrard Inlet juxtaposed against an emerging Coquitlam urbanism. The four towers have been placed orthogonally to the surrounding streets of Como Lake, Clarke and the new Lea street extension. Each tower has a unique expression but they all share a similar design language of linear and rectilinear elements, hovering volumes set above high volume glazed lobbies or retail / residential podiums. Metal panel banding highlights key vertical and horizontal features; while penthouse units are set in to provide extensive roof decks with cantilevered roof for rain coverage. The Podium along Como and Clarke provides a robust 3 storey streetwall with its rhythm of stone clad columns providing opportunity for a variety of retail unit sizes. Continuous canopy coverage will be provided across the retail public realm and will provide opportunities for lighting and signage. Public plazas have been provided at the North and South corners of Clarke; while two north-south pedestrian connections have been provided midblock and at the far East edge of the site. The midblock wood frame building on Clarke will feature white and dark gray zones of the façade to provide a sense of scale and quality.
