Plan adopted to modernize Austin Heights - at last

BY JANIS WARREN - The Tri-City News 

Plans for the first highrise in the soon-to-be-redeveloped Austin Heights neighbourhood in Coquitlam are already underway with the developer organizing an open house for later this month. 

Houtan Rafii, vice president of residential development with the Beedie Group, said his company will host the public consultation for its proposed 24-storey tower at Blue Mountain Street and Austin Avenue. The meeting is expected to take place at the Royal Canadian Legion or at the Vancouver Golf Club within the next two weeks.
