In 2002, Wesbild purchased approximately 400 acres of land on Burke Mountain from the government of British Columbia and private landowners. Wesbild actively participated in the neighbourhood planning process with the local residents, environmental stakeholders and the City of Coquitlam, before moving our parcels through the approval process.
As construction began in early 2007 a new community was born out of that extensive collaborative process, with several of BC’s most trusted home builders invited to bring their talents to this community, including Foxridge, Morningstar, Polygon, Noura, Gardenia and Wallmark. The Foothills at Burke Mountain is now home to many families with new neighbours moving in each week.
In Spring of 2014, Wesbild acquired an additional 370 acres of Burke Mountain land from the province. Approximately a quarter of the newly acquired land is situated within approved neighbourhood plans, Smiling Creek and Partington Creek; a large percentage of the remainder is a part of the City of Coquitlam’s Northwest Burke Vision (NBV), which is already underway. This will continue Wesbild’s over 35-year history in the City of Coquitlam. Over the course of this community’s evolution, Wesbild has worked in partnership with the city on a number of substantial infrastructure projects. These include the extension of David Avenue, storm sewer & water supply installation, plus the creation of community parks. Furthermore, we are committed to developing additional community amenities such as schools and transportation.
With its many types of homes, including estate residences, large single-family, small single-family, row homes and traditional townhomes, The Foothills is a testament to the act that a community requires options for every family from the first-time buyer right through to the empty-nester.
