The Robinsons Parkside Collection is nothing short of timeless sophistication, inside and out

By Michelle Hopkins Jun 16, 2022

An established neighbourhood, West Coquitlam is going through a growth spurt. It is re-emerging as an exciting and desirable neighbourhood with big-city amenities, great walkability, cultural diversity, fabulous shops and malls, as well as stunning parks, such as Mountain View Park, Burnaby Lake, Mundy Park, and Como Lake.


This is where Formwerks Boutique Properties is introducing The Robinsons Parkside Collection – a combination of urban sophistication, unique architecture and idyllic green spaces. Following in the footsteps of the highly successful and sold out The Robinsons, the award-winning developer’s newest project is right across the street.


“We launched The Robinsons in 2021 and it sold out incredibly fast,” says James McKenny, director of sales and marketing, Formwerks Boutique Properties. “The Robinsons Parkside Collection brings a single-family, classic architectural expression and timeless look that will stand the test of time. This summer, we are offering a limited release of 27 residences.”


Nestled in a quiet residential neighbourhood, The Robinsons Parkside Collection features 92, two and three-bedroom plus den townhomes, city and garden homes, some with lock off suites and rooftop decks, ranging from 800 to 1,500 square feet. The West Coast style is taken to new heights with eye-catching swooping chalet rooflines and shake siding.



“We’ve come to understand the mechanics of family, and the possibilities of home and life should be endless. That’s why we’ve designed versatility into each home, like with our lock-off suites” says Jim Bussey, founder. ” With a separate entrance, appliances, and a bathroom, lock-off suites can be used for rental income, multi-generational family members, or for a home-based business.”


Thoughtfully curated by Lisa Perry Interiors, each home comes with high-end finishes, including elegant wide plank wood-look vinyl floors, custom panelled feature wall, vaulted ceilings in the primary bedroom (select homes), frameless walk-in showers with niches, and luxe fixtures.


Main Bedroom


You will love cooking in the gourmet kitchens, which feature a 36” French door, Energy Star refrigerator, a powerful convection gas range with storage drawer, under-cabinet range hood system, ceramic tile backsplash in a stacked vertical or chevron pattern paired with quartz countertops, and spacious islands or peninsulas.


Dining Room


“The Robinsons, and now Parkside Collection, are arguably the nicest and most well-designed projects 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.”


And then there’s the 5,600+ square foot indoor/outdoor amenity centre — a separate building where residents can relax or socialize, indoors or out. Dine al Fresco on the rooftop deck, enjoy meeting new friends by the firepit lounge, hang out with your kids in the play area, grow herbs and fresh vegetables in the community garden, or stretch in the yoga studio.




“We are delivering amenities seldom seen in townhome projects,” says McKenny.


The Robinsons Parkside Collection 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 a five-minute walk to the home of a future, expansive YMCA, which is set to complete this fall.


For more than three decades, Formwerks has been crafting homes synonymous with innovation, quality and excellence creating a true live-, work- play lifestyle. The Robinsons Parkside Collection homes starts from the mid-$700,000 for a two-bedroom. For more information or to register, visit Phase 1 is set to complete in 2024.
