Soon you’ll be able to experience the Yaletown lifestyle in Burnaby.
A master-planned community called Concord Brentwood is the latest development from Concord Pacific Developments Inc., renowned for its skyline-defining communities on Vancouver’s False Creek and Toronto’s lakefront.
Concord Brentwood will create a bustling community according to Concord Pacific senior vice president Matt Meehan. “Our next project in Burnaby, Concord Brentwood, will see 26 acres in the Brentwood neighbourhood transform into a beautiful and diverse mixed-use park-side community that completes the exciting revitalization of the Brentwood Town Centre neighbourhood.”
Located only a five minute walk from Brentwood Town Centre and its SkyTrain station, residents will have easy access to transport routes across Metro Vancouver.
The Brentwood SkyTrain station on the Millennium line connects to the Expo line as well as the future Evergreen line to Port Moody and Coquitlam. Brentwood’s enviable central location, 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver, offers easy access to Trans-Canada and Lougheed highways.
Residents will also have access to Brentwood Mall’s massive redevelopment, enjoying world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment facilities close at hand. “This was planned closely with the City of Burnaby to be an extremely livable family community,” says Meehan. “It’s intended to round out the current mix of development in Brentwood and provide future residents a valuable park-side alternative.”
Concord Brentwood will be anchored by over 13-acres of park and green space. The park will comprise of the best elements of George Wainborn and David Lam Park in Vancouver.
Concord Brentwood residents will also enjoy easy access to recreational facilities and other key elements of a well-rounded community. “The green space will be developed as a combination of passive and sports/events programming with recreational infrastructure interlaced,” says Meehan. “A proposed new public school is also planned as part of the community.”
Designed by award-winning architect James K.M. Cheng of Vancouver, Concord Brentwood will consist of 10 towers, most between 40 and 45 storeys tall. Tower 1 of Phase 1 will consist of 426 units on 45 storeys.
Signature proposed exterior architectural elements include asymmetrical supporting pillars that extend approximately 38 feet from ground level according to Concord Pacific’s senior vice-president of development, Peter Webb.
“The pillars will create a dynamic visual presence as well as architectural support for the tower,” said Webb.
Tower 1’s one to three bedroom homes will range in size from approximately 534 square feet to 1,239 square feet. Luxurious interior features will include fully integrated Bosch appliances, engineered-quartz countertops, marble tile backsplashes in shower surrounds and bathroom flooring, a wood grain laminate finish for closet organizers, door trim, and interior suite doors.
“Most corner two and three bedrooms will have wraparound balconies with a unique sliding door system that seamlessly connects the indoor and outdoor space,” said Webb.
Common-area features will include Wi-Fi in ground-floor lobbies and amenity areas, a building-wide water filtration system, an automatic car wash and manual carwash bays with hot and cold water. All parking stalls will be equipped with electric vehicle charging outlets and there will be 9 electric cars for sharing.
A wide array of urban amenities means residents will have everything they need, right on their doorstep.
“Endless amenities like Concord Pacific’s Signature Super Club and a Village Central, as part of phase two, will consist of a proposed new grocery store, cafés, and other service-oriented commercial retailers,” Meehan explains.
A central lobby concierge podium, shared between towers 1 and 2 of phase 1, will house two levels of amenities, including a fitness centre with yoga studio, grand lounge, games room, pet grooming room, theater room, study rooms, and a music room.
The recently opened Whole Foods Market at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue, Save- On-Foods at Madison Centre, and a growing array of shops, restaurants and amenities are within a short walk. As well, the vibrant multicultural Burnaby Heights neighbourhood close by offers charming cafés, European patisseries, local butcher shops, fresh food markets, and an acclaimed French fine dining restaurant, the Pear Tree.
Concord Brentwood Phase 1 sales are slated to open this spring. The Burnaby presentation centre, located in Metrotown, is now in its final construction stages and will soon open to the public. For information and to register for updates about the project, visit Concordbrentwood.com.
