ABOUT the alex

the alex (Halq’eméylem word for “sister”) is an upcoming development project located in the residential Glenwood Neighbourhood, near Port Coquitlam’s Northside commercial area. The corner site faces Flint Street and Prairie Avenue, an arterial road serviced with public transit and a marked bicycle route. Kwayhquitlam Middle School is located immediately east and James Park Elementary School is just a 15-minute walk away.

This area is currently experiencing substantial change as many of the older single detached homes are being replaced with townhouses. The site is owned by Metro Vancouver and will be leased to Atira Women’s Resource Society on a long-term basis.


ABOUT the alex early care & learning center

Atira’s development concept consists of a 5-storey wood frame mixed-use apartment building, townhouses, childcare space, commercial lease space and support spaces. The development envisions a licensed, nonprofit daycare of at least 37 spaces that will include infant, toddler and after-school care. It is expected to open in the fall of 2022.
