Henderson Place, located in Coquitlam, is an example of a leading mixed-use development that was planned ahead of the “Smart Growth” movement. Key principles of Smart Growth are to integrate land uses, develop sustainable projects that value the environment and public health, to enhance communities with pedestrian friendly neighbourhoods and multiple transportation options, while remaining cost-conscious throughout the development process. Henderson Place, located within minutes of Glen Park, mixes 424 affordable condominium homes with 245,000ft² of shops and services and is located at Lincoln Station of the proposed Evergreen LRT line.
Guildford Park Place is a family of several low-rise apartment buildings, a variety of three and four level townhomes, and a high-rise residential tower. This collection of condominiums accommodates for a cross-section of buyers with different living needs. Whether it be a first time home buyer, couples looking to down size, or families needing the extra space townhomes offer – each of these groups will find a suitable home at Guildford Park Place.
To compliment the diversity of living options, Guildford Park Place features exclusive amenities shared between all buildings and residents, which with the Courtside Club include: a state of the art fitness centre, two outdoor swimming pools, two saunas, tennis courts, a whirlpool spa, a putting green, an exercise room, media room, multi-purpose party lounge, and an arts & crafts centre.
In addition, Guildford Park Place is located adjacent to the Green Timbers Urban Forest, which offers seven different walking or cycling trails for residents to enjoy.
Since 1993 Henderson Canada has been developing the International Village neighbourhood into one of downtown Vancouver’s best master-planned communities. Once fully complete in 2009, International Village’s four residential projects (Paris Place, Europa, Firenze, and España) will be home to approximately 2,200 people living in 1,300 condominiums.
In addition to the retail components of Firenze and España, this community offers two excellent commercial properties: Paris Square anchored by T&T Supermarket and International Village Mall anchored by Cinemark Tinseltown Cinemas giving International Village over 400,000ft² of commercial/retail space. All of the retail centres are designed with street orientated retail, which creates a neighbourhood ambience.
As part of International Village’s master-plan, Henderson Canada has built a variety of community amenities.
Andy Livingstone Park is a city park featuring one of North America’s largest outdoor artificial turfs with two soccer fields, a baseball diamond, tennis courts, and basketball courts.
Henderson Canada will build a child day-care facility and accommodate an elementary school on the Firenze site.
Henderson Canada has provided a portion of International Village at the corner of Abbott and West Pender Streets for the City of Vancouver for the development of non-market housing.
The Keefer Steps and Keefer Circle provide convenient access to the Stadium Skytrain station and form part of the Silk Road, which connects Chinatown with downtown Vancouver.
