Earlier this year we reported on the groundbreaking redevelopment of Station Square in Burnaby (adjacent to Metropolis at Metrotown). Although still in its early phase, the project, once approved will be a behemoth and add to the already growing cluster of large towers in Burnaby’s Metrotown neighbourhood.
The redevelopment will consist of five residential towers ranging from 35-57 stories.
If approved, the first phase will include retail at ground level, offices on the next two storeys. In total five residential towers ranging in height from 35 to 57 storeys will be constructed. The project is expected to take 10 years to complete so don’t hold your breath for a quick turnaround. Once complete it will have 1,500 to 1,800 residential units and feature a retail strip that promises to have a Granville Island type feel. Not too sure how they can replicate that, however, any street level retail is welcomed for a suburban tower.
