The big sell: The Easton development is a new project that is being built by the Allaire Group on the West Coquitlam/Burnaby border in the area known as Burquitlam. This emerging neighbourhood is well placed to take advantage of the future Evergreen Line, which is scheduled to be completed in 2016, as well as myriad retail stores. There are 72 units in Easton laid out over four levels. This apartment is a corner unit on the second floor and enjoys a northwesterly exposure from the covered balcony. It has nine-foot ceilings, eco-engineered wide-plank laminate flooring, a stainless-steel appliance package, porcelain tiles, polished quartz countertops and oversized windows. The building’s amenities include a rooftop deck, community garden boxes, an in-house meeting room, a security system, bike and storage lockers, and a 2-5-10 home warranty plan. The project is estimated for occupancy in October.
