A 44-unit townhouse development in the Burke Mountain area passed an important step in the city of Coquitlam’s development application process.

The proposal, which was approved by the land use committee during Monday’s meeting, will now go before the full council and the public will get the chance to comment on the application.

The development fronts Burke Mountain Promenade and, if approved, will be built on a sloping piece of property, which has a 30 m grade change and a ravine on either side.

Because of the land’s topography, the homes will be built in a pattern that steps with the slope of the site, ranging from two storeys along Burke Mountain Promenade to three on the downhill side.

And the townhouse development is not the only residential proposal being considered for the area.

The Smiling Creek neighbourhood is expected to see 31 multi-family units on the northeast corner of land at Burke Mountain Street and Victoria Drive, should council approve the application.

Nineteen three-bedroom units and 12 two-bedroom units ranging from 1,700 to 2,000 sq. ft. are expected to be built on the site.
