Coquitlam townhomes make most of natural setting

By Chris Campbell, 24 hours

Most projects covered in Condo Culture highlight life in the heart of busy urban centres — with emphasis on being in the middle of the action, so to speak. That means nightclubs, bright lights and plenty of concrete right at people’s doorsteps.

But that’s not for everybody. Some people would rather have trees, trails, wildlife and a little silence right on their doorstep — those are the people tailor-made for Bridlewood.

Polygon’s next project at 3470 Highland Dr. in Coquitlam gets people close to nature, while keeping them near to shopping and a burgeoning transportation network.

Bridlewood is a collection of three- and four-bedroom townhomes nestled in the stunning beauty of Burke Mountain. While the Grouse Grind and the North Shore mountains might get all the press, Burke Mountain is every bit the adventure when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors.

Complete with its own protected provincial park, Burke Mountain features a wide array of hiking and mountain bike trails that offer everything from a brisk morning wake-up call to daylong journeys.

Bridlewood is just steps away from the trail system, a tree-lined tributary, and the banks of West Smiling Creek. Each townhome comes equipped with large patios to enjoy the fruits that nature offers.

These, however, aren’t cabins in some remote location. When Bridlewood opens its doors, it will be just down the street from the new Meridian Crossing shopping centre. It’s also a short walk from Galloway Park where there’s a children’s spray park to enjoy on hot summer days. A short drive away is where the Evergreen SkyTrain line will run starting in 2016.

The exterior of the Bridlewood units will feature the warm look of cedar shingles and brick, while interiors will be open layouts with engineered stone countertops, laminate flooring and stainless steel appliances.

Sales plans for Bridlewood are still in the formative stage, which means prices and a sales centre have yet to be unveiled. The official sales launch is March 1. For more information, visit or email The phone number is 604-871-4194
