The iconic TELUS Boot office tower at Boundary and Kingsway on the Vancouver-Burnaby border could soon be joined by four new towers.
PC Urban is in the preliminary stages of a rezoning application with the City of Burnaby to redevelop the site, retaining the 21-storey ‘Boot’ office tower, and demolishing the other buildings on the site to make way for a new, mixed-use project.
Details are scarce at this stage, but the developer envisions four high-rise towers, with a mix of office, residential and retail space, atop podiums which will active the Kingsway and Boundary streetscapes.
The site is across from a large residential high-rise development called Wall Centre Central Park, completed in 2016.
The boot-shaped TELUS office building, also known as the Brian Canfield Centre, was built in 1976. It was the first major office building to be built out of the downtown core at the time of its construction.
