Project 1 — Burquitlam Park (579 Smith Ave.): The plan will see Concert Properties rezone Burquitlam Park, the subject of a recent land swap with the city, transforming it from a grass playing field and baseball park to a multi-use development with a 50-storey condominium tower — it will be the city’s tallest — with approximately 435 units and another 30-storey purpose-built rental tower with approximately 275 units. In between the two towers will be a two- to three-storey, 55,000-sq. ft. YMCA recreation facility with a pool, gym, multi-purpose space and more. The cost hasn’t been finalized but $25 million in community amenity contributions from developers will be available for the project, with the city paying 50% and the YMCA covering the rest, plus operating costs. As well, there will be a community policing station and a 50-stall park-and-ride facility, plus about 1.5 acres of community park in the area, which is close to Burquitlam Station and Bosa’s Uptown development.
