BTY Group (“BTY”) has been our Project Manager of choice for all NationWide developments, and they have also been appointed as Project Manager for the Coquitlam Property.

BFA Studio Architects (“BFA”) has also been engaged by NationWide to provide both architectural and engineering services. BFA is experienced in designing and engineering several other multi-level urban self-storage buildings and we are happy to work with them again on this project.


The Development Permit submission was submitted to the City of Coquitlam in May. BFA has now received comments back from the City of Coquitlam and the application is due to be re-submitted in late August 2021.


The Coquitlam Property is situated on a corner lot right on Lougheed Hwy across from IKEA. Lougheed Hwy is 150 km (90 miles) long and is also known as British Columbia Hwy 7 and is widely used alternative route to Hwy 1 through the Lower Mainland region. Hwy 7 (Lougheed Hwy) is an important link for travel and goods movement at the local, regional, and provincial level. In 2018, Hwy 7 saw an Annual Average Daily Traffic “AADT”) count of approximately 56,000 to 53,000 vehicles a day, split eastbound and westbound.
