About Port Moody and Tri-Cities
The tri-cities area is an informal grouping of the GVRD Cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody. Together, they contain a population of approximately 220,000 and form a bustling and fast-growing community. Attracting investment from around the region and across the world, the tri-cities area offers pretty much everything one could ask for, including all the attractions of an expanding metropolis, while offering a nearly unparalleled natural setting affording residents and visitors alike endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. Quickly becoming a commercial hub, transit to and from the region is widely available via bus, Westcoast Express commuter train, and the soon-to-be-open Evergreen skytrain line, connecting the residents of the Coquitlam area seamlessly to Vancouver and its surrounding communities.
Shopping and dining in the tri-cities are second- to-none. Coquitlam Centre, the tri-cities’ largest shopping centre, and one of the largest in the GVRD, features over 910,000 sqft of retail space on two levels, situated on fifty seven acres of land. Located at the intersection of Lougheed Hwy and Barnet Hwy, it soon will be serviced by skytrain at Lincoln Station, making access to and from the mall that much easier. Other shopping centres offering every type of product and service you can think of can be found all along the Lougheed Hwy/Barnet Hwy corridor, from the Pitt River Bridge in Port Coquitlam, right through to the Western edge of Port Moody. Spend a day perusing the boutiques along Port Coquitlam’s downtown core, and then take in a show at any one of the region’s movie, art, or cultural theatres. The region’s diverse population ensures that regardless of what type of international cuisine you’re in the mood for, there’s a great restaurant that will satisfy.
Offering very affordable real estate prices relevant to some other parts of the Lower Mainland, the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody areas continue to attract residents from around the region and around the world. Infrastructure improvements to Highway 1 and the Cape Horn Interchange have made the commute to and from Vancouver much more manageable, while ongoing improvements to public transit options – in particular the soon-to-be-opened Evergreen Skytrain line – promise to continue to invigorate the region for decades to come. Truly, this is a place anyone should be proud to call home.
