The first of several major redevelopments of traditional shopping centres on transit lines — The Amazing Brentwood — is taking shape in Burnaby.
The megaproject will see the former Brentwood Town Centre mall redeveloped into a high-density, mixed-use neighbourhood with 6,000 homes in 11 highrise towers, plus 1.1 million square feet of new retail and one million square feet of office space, all on the Millennium SkyTrain line.
New retailers and restaurants opening soon include:
Two residential towers are already complete and occupied, and the third tower is expected to be completed later this year. The 63-storey residential towers are already highly visible from across the region.
The redevelopment, backed by SHAPE Properties, was designed by James KM Cheng Architects, Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, and Stantec Architecture.
