Top 5 Reasons to Love Burke Mountain


5.   It’s got great views – some developments on Burke Mountain have incredible panoramic views of the City and mountain, stretching all the way from Surrey to Burnaby.


4.   It’s quality built – Morningstar. Polygon. Mosaic. Benchmark. Foxridge. Intergulf. Moscone. All of these builders have one thing in common: Quality building practices and excellent reputations in the construction and development industry.  Buyers looking at Burke Mountain can enjoy comfort knowing that whichever development they choose to buy in, they will be purchasing a quality home from a reputable builder.


3.   It’s kid friendly – As a growing neighbourhood of young families, the cul-de-sacs, trails and parks are the perfect “playing grounds” for kids of all ages.  Little explorers will love Hyde Creek, which runs right down the mountain, with walking trails flanking it and criss-crossing everywhere.  The Town Centre Spray Park is a hit in the summer.  Burke Mountain has a new elementary school and a new high school in the plans for the next 5 years.  In the meantime, the school bus comes right up the hill for families sending their children to Leigh Elementary only 4 minutes away.


2.   It’s convenient – Four minutes from Coquitlam Centre. Five minutes from the Coquitlam Park and Ride and Westcoast Express. Ten minutes from the Mary Hill Bypass and Hwy 1. Burke Mountain is centrally located in Northeast Coquitlam, and is surrounded by all of the amenities any community could need: parks and trails, lakes, recreation centres, shopping, transit, restaurants, entertainment and professional services.  The recent opening of the Coast Meridian Overpass has significantly improved access to Highway 1, but unless you need to commute, you will find that you don’t need to go more than 10 minutes in any direction to get what you need!


1.  It’s got front porches – with homes built to reflect the classic architecture of Shaughnessy and Kerrisdale, many of the pedestrian friendly neighbourhoods on Burke Mountain are being designed to encourage a true community spirit where residents can get to know their neighbours and spend time outdoors with family and friends.  Many people that I’ve spoken to up here reflect the same sentiment: they want to live somewhere where their kids could play outside safely, and they feel like they are part of a community.  Does this sound like you?
