The conversation was short but the development was substantial.

Coquitlam council granted third reading to a 563-unit development spanning four lots on Lougheed Highway and the 600 blocks of Grayson and Alderson avenues in a unanimous vote without discussion Monday night.

The development consists of two towers measuring 29 and 25 storeys, as well as a six-storey apartment building, a four-storey stacked townhouse and space for a child care.

Discussing the project in October, Coun. Teri Towner lauded the “much need rental” as well as the child care space.

When completed, the phased development is set to include 408 market condos and 155 market rentals divided between the two towers. The units must remain rental for the life of the building.

Council initially gave third reading to the proposal in October 2021. However, after city staff noted an error in the unit mix, council voted to rescind the previous approval and re-approve the project on Monday.
