Nestled along the slopes of Eagle Mountain in the north of Coquitlam is the vast neighbourhood of Westwood Plateau. Once a dense forest, the lands past David Avenue were once home to the Westwood Motorsport Park, located near the site of the present Hampton Park Elementary School By the late 1980s demand for housing was growing as a result of urban sprawl, and Westwood Motorsport Park and the rest of the surrounding Crown lands were sold to a developer which saw the construction of some 4,500 upscale homes built along the mountainside. The roadways are quite steep and almost all of the homes are 3-storeys built on the slope with basements.
One of the striking features of Westwood Plateau is the diversity of the types of housing one can find here. Apartments and townhomes can also be found in this unique area, including both medium-density residential units as well as detached single family dwellings. Another is the abundance of green space and trees that surround the neighbourhood along 3 sides. Drive up to the peak and you will find a beautiful golf course and pockets of homes nestled among the greenery. This provides homes in this area with magnificent unobstructed views of Pitt Meadows, the Pitt River, Mount Baker and the Fraser Valley. Drive along Pinetree Way and turn into any of the side streets and you will notice a trend in building styles here. Pillared entry ways, tile roofs, and vast driveways all attest to the prestigious nature of the area. For those looking for luxury mansions the best money can buy you will want to see Parkway and Plateau Boulevards, each known as the “Streets of Dreams”, houses along these corridors will not disappoint, and feature sweeping panoramic views across the city and down to the valley.
