Maillardville Homes For Sale
Maillardville, one of Coquitlam’s oldest neighbourhoods, has a distinct French Canadian heritage. Among the early settlers were migrants from Quebec, experienced mill workers who arrived in the area in 1909 in response to the recruiting efforts of the local Fraser Mills Company. The French Canadians left their mark on the area through the resulting settlement patterns, architectural styles, cultural influences, and community name. The Francophone influence has been retained through the adoption and application of design guidelines that encourage an architectural style in new development that reflects the area’s history.
Maillardville offers a wide range of housing types from older, single family homes, to mobile homes, to a variety of multiple family options. Although some construction of infill single family and duplex units has occurred in recent years, the majority has centered on townhouse and apartment development. The Gateway Tower and Village Centre are situated at Brunette Avenue and Lougheed Highway, a welcoming transition into this very distinct area. Growth of other commercial initiatives is evident on Schoolhouse Street and along the Lougheed Highway in southern Maillardville.
