Discover why The Robinsons in the sought-after neighbourhood of West Coquitlam is garnering so much excitement

By Michelle Hopkins Feb 17, 2021

Ena Gan and her fiancé spent three months looking for the perfect home in the perfect neighbourhood. When the couple saw The Robinsons, they knew they found their dream home.

“The Robinsons hit all the right boxes for us,” says Gan, adding they purchased a three-bedroom townhome. “We looked at several neighbourhoods in the Tri-Cities, but we really fell for West Coquitlam … it’s an emerging, developing community close to transit, amenities and an elementary school.”

Gan says they also fell in love with both the aesthetics and interior design. “The exterior is a very attractive heritage style with a backyard and front patio, which is important because we want to start a family soon,” adds Gan.

Marcia Carreira couldn’t agree more.

“This is my second Formwerks townhome,” says Carreira. “I’m very familiar with the company’s great workmanship and excellent quality finishes. Also, in a lot of new builds, they seem so cookie cutter but a Formwerks home isn’t. We love the character and architecture of The Robinsons.”

Nestled in a quiet residential neighbourhood, The Robinsons is a timeless collection of 34, two-bedroom plus den with lock-off, three-bedroom, and three-bedroom plus den family townhomes.

“The uniqueness of a lock off suite is that you can use it for so many different purposes: rent it out as a mortgage helper, provide some independence for young adult kids or support an aging family member, you could even use it as a home business space or a creative studio. There’s all kinds of new expectations for our homes, and we are accommodating for different family circumstances and the fluidity of lives within this versatile space that evolves with you,” says James McKenny, director of sales and marketing, Formwerks Boutique Properties.

Ranging from 1,260 up to a spacious 1,473 square feet, The Robinsons offers a unique opportunity to purchase a timeless West coast modern residence, each with two-parking stalls, locker storage, as well as a private balcony and patio for busy, city dwellers.

“The Robinsons is arguably the nicest and most well-designed project in West Coquitlam right now,’ says McKenny. “Both the features and finishes are high end and yet stand up to an active family’s daily use. The dens are so versatile, they can be converted into a generous size home office, hobby space or a children’s study space.”

This once established neighbourhood is going through a growing spurt, with upscale amenities, including great shops and malls, and stunning parks, such as Burnaby Lake and Como Lake. The Robinsons offers a combination of urban sophistication and idyllic green spaces.

The Robinsons is walking distance to the Burquitlam Station, an eight-minute drive to Simon Fraser University Burnaby campus, and close to Lougheed Town Centre. For young families, it is also less than one block to Mountain View Elementary School and near the home of a future YMCA.
