    Hi there, im just curious as to why there is now no mention
    Of the coffee, or yoga place at Meridian Crossing.
    Those two places sounded intriguing and would add value and
    Compliment the avg Foothills demographic, and provide an excellent
    Gathering place. And with subway and 7-11 already 2 minutes down Coast,
    I fail to see the value/need for these types of stores?

    Regards,

    Brent

      Hi Brent,

      Wesbild is excited to bring some long-awaited neighbourhood shopping to Burke Mountain in 2013! The coffee shop and yoga studio were part of the original plans for Meridian Crossing, which have since changed. The purpose of Meridian Crossing is to provide Burke Mountain residents a walkable option for convenient neighbourhood shopping, instead of residents having to get in their cars at all.

      If you are interested in learning more about how we got to where we are with the shopping centre, please feel free to give me a call directly at 604-484-3898, or visit the Foothills Information Centre.

      Thanks,

    We moved into the Burke Mountain Heights neighborhood last summer and have since met many of the families living here. Everyone is so disappointed about the coffee shop and yoga practice pulling out of the lease. None of us are pleased about the 7-11…just does not suit the demographic around here…And in all honesty, what family does their shopping at a 7-11? It was disappointing to hear that 2 quality locally owned businesses pulled out of their lease because they felt they were mislead by what they were told Coast Meridian Crossing would cater to and what it is now. I don’t feel a 7-11 or a subway adds convenience nor , quality, or contributes to a sense of community and I know I’m not the only one in the area who feels this. It’s really too bad.

      Hi Rita,

      Wesbild is excited to bring this long-awaited neighbourhood shopping to Burke Mountain. I would like to clarify that the reason that the coffee shop and the yoga studio pulled out wasn’t because they were mislead by Wesbild, but because of individual reasons surrounding their businesses.

      I’d love to chat with you about this personally. Please feel free to call me directly at 604-484-3898 and we can talk about how Wesbild got to where we are with Meridian Crossing. We have a dedicated shopping centre team who have worked very hard to get tenants into Meridian Crossing and I’d be happy to give you some background on that, too. Looking forward to hearing from you.
