By The Heights on Austin

On any given day, walk out of your new home and be surrounded by the energy of small businesses and thriving local entrepreneurs, enjoying the local fare of shops, services, restaurants and more. It’s what to expect as a resident of The Heights on Austin by Beedie Living, a mixed-use environment in one of Coquitlam’s most established and family-friendly enclaves.

Currently in development, two landmark 25-storey one-, two- and three-bedroom condos will bookend one of the region’s largest Safeway locations, boasting over 65,000-square-feet, with 15,000-square-feet of additional retail and office amenities, all in the commercial core of Austin Heights, an urban suburbia poised for revitalization.

Stunning Views and Design Excellence

Views are a real head-turner from multiple vantage points. You’ll soak in 360-degree sweeping panoramas of Mount Baker, the Fraser River, Burnaby’s skyline, Vancouver and the West Coast mountains. A healthy stock of mature single-family homes and low-rise apartments retain the neighbourhood’s character, ensuring your unobstructed views will be preserved.

Designed by Chris Dikeakos Architects, the towers offer a family-friendly mix of 356 homes total, including 12 non-market in partnership with Vancouver Resource Society. Interiors are graced with the vision of award-winning BYU Design and include luxurious kitchens with an integrated Fisher and Paykel appliance.

Quality of Life

The area’s high quality of life appeals to new families, urban professionals and downsizing empty-nesters. “The one-bedrooms will be attractive to first-time home buyers and young professional couples who are looking for convenience and affordability, living above a retail hub and being just a short five-minute drive from any of three neighbouring Skytrain stations,” says Houtan Rafii, executive vice president, residential development of Beedie Living.

“Our two-bedroom homes are well-positioned with a southern view overlooking the Fraser and city views, which are perfectly suited to a downsizer who doesn’t want to compromise on sophistication or quality; while our three-bedroom apartments and townhomes are efficient, optimal for upsizing young families and executive couples.”

Amenities Above and Beyond

You will have plenty of options for spending quality time with family and friends utilizing the more than 25,000-square-feet of amenity space between the two towers. Create memories and Instagram-able moments mingling and entertaining. Think harvest dining table, BBQ, wet bar and social lounge with fireplace. Test your bocce skills on the landscaped terrace, or just relax while the kids keep occupied in a play area.

Indoors, a fully-equipped entertainment lounge offers incredible entertaining possibilities with a dining room and sports bar, while a guest suite allows residents to entertain out-of-town friends and family in style. Concierge services elevate the luxury lifestyle quotient, with a secure package room and more. You’ll keep your health and wellness goals in check with an air-conditioned state of the art fitness centre. It’s easy to stay active in the neighbourhood too! Abundant green space and leisure amenities are easily accessible: the Vancouver Golf Club, four-time host of the LPGA Tour; Blue Mountain Park, with tennis, ball diamond and spray park; Como Lake, offering a fenced-in playground, lakeside loop trail, and rainbow trout for urban anglers; and Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex, with fitness classes, pools and skating rink.

Well-Connected and Walkable

Known for its walkability, the revitalization plan for the Ridgeway Avenue pedestrian boulevard—adjacent to the development’s site between Marmont and Nelson—will encourage even more interaction, with opportunities for residents to grab a coffee, walk the dog, shop and stroll or just sit and linger.

As a further benefit, the development’s unrivalled location puts you in the centre of connectivity. You’ll welcome the proximity to transit that carries you to Lougheed Town Centre, a SkyTrain hub that links the Expo Line and Millennium Line and the new Evergreen Extension. Enjoy direct access and an easy five-minute drive to Lougheed Highway or Highway 1, the main arteries out of Coquitlam.

“When it comes to truly having all the modern conveniences, everything is right at your doorstep,” says Rafii. “You’re easily connected to Vancouver, while being part of an intimate neighbourhood.”
