A New Community with Diverse Housing
Florin is a multi-family development in West Coquitlam’s Cariboo neighbourhood by Allaire Living. It will consolidate 10 single-family lots into a cluster of stacked townhomes, row homes, condominiums, and three heritage homes. These will be arranged as a gradual transition from mid-rise buildings in the west to townhouses and single-family homes in the east. A total of 181 residences offer a range of floor plans from one to four bedrooms with interiors from 445 – 1,959 sq ft. The heritage homes, dating from between 1928 and 1940, will be relocated within the site and renovated. Two of them will have secondary suites.
Florin offers the convenience of proximity to diverse options for shopping, dining, and socializing along North Road, such as H-Mart, Insadong Korean BBQ, and Passion8 Dessert Cafe. Currently undergoing a major redevelopment, The City of Lougheed shopping centre includes major retailers, such as the Hudson’s Bay Company, Sport Chek, and London Drugs. For leisure and recreation, The Vancouver Golf Club and Blue Mountain Park are just a short drive away. For events and activities in Burnaby, New Westminter, Vancouver, or Port Moody, SkyTrain offers car-free travel from nearby Lougheed Town Centre Station.
