Six residential properties in Burquitlam have been assembled to build 63 stacked townhouses.
Last month, city council gave fourth and final rezoning to the proposal from Anthem Grant Developments to construct the townhomes — in six buildings — at 909, 913, 917, 921, 925 and 927 Grant St., located north of Miller Park elementary.
As well, the project will be built on part of an unconstructed city lane, which the municipality recently sold to Anthem for $388,000 for consolidation, according to a staff report to council on July 26.
Anthem will also pay the city $952,000 in development cost charges for future infrastructure and $184,000 in voluntary community amenities charges.
The townhouse units will range from one- to three-storeys high and will have a West Coast design plus a common area for a playground, outdoor dining and a fitness hub. And each unit will have a patio or upper deck, the city report states.
The decision to change the land use and issue a development permit comes after a public hearing last July.
Anthem Properties is a prominent developer in Metro Vancouver. Among its properties is SOCO, a master-planned community on the former Best Western Coquitlam Inn site, at 319 North Rd., made up of five towers (ranging from 23 to 44 storeys); a six-storey rental building; retail and office space; and a daycare.
