Burnaby condo tower to include “al fresco” dining terrace

A site midway between the Metrotown and Royal Oak SkyTrain stations will soon be redeveloped into a 34-storey condominium tower and a four-storey affordable rental apartment building.

The properties, at 6556, 6566, 6580 and 6596 Marlborough Avenue, fall under Burnaby’s Metrotown Downtown Plan, and are currently occupied by three low-rise apartment buildings.
