Partnership announced to bring a new YMCA to Burquitlam

On Mar 16, 2016 under Corporate Announcements

On the evening of March 14, 2016 it was announced in a Council meeting that the City of Coquitlam, the YMCA of Greater Vancouver and Concert Properties are moving forward with a three-party partnership that will deliver two major community amenities in the Burquitlam neighbourhood.

The project includes construction of a 55,000-plus sq. ft. YMCA family recreation facility on the current Burquitlam Park site, as well as over 2.55 acres of additional park space at Cottonwood Park. Both amenities will be located in the heart of the Burquitlam area and will respond to the recreation needs of this evolving Coquitlam neighbourhood. The project will also realize the development of 2.1 acres on the Burquitlam Park site for a mixed-used development, led by Concert. One-and-a-half acres on that site will be retained for public open space. The deliverables of this partnership are subject to rezoning approval for the mixed-use development on the Burquitlam Park site.

The target date for completion of the expanded Cottonwood Park is early 2019, and the anticipated opening of the Coquitlam YMCA is early 2021. The intent is to have the park expansion substantially complete before beginning the construction work on the Burquitlam Park site.
