New rental homes at Brentwood to raise the bar for urban living

Oct 4 2019, 1:59 pm

It’s no surprise that rentals are in high demand across Vancouver (who wouldn’t want to live here?). But finding a place that strikes the perfect balance for your lifestyle can be a challenge if you don’t know where to look.

This is where Metro Vancouver’s newest rental development comes in: The Amazing Brentwood. Led by SHAPE, HOOPP, and L Catterton Real Estate (LCRE), the development is bringing 300 brand new rental homes to Burnaby’s Brentwood neighbourhood.

Now that Tower One is complete,  you’ve got the opportunity to check out the available suites and apply to be among the first residents to move in. Leases are being signed on a first-come, first-served basis, so lucky applicants will be able to move into their new rentals immediately.

When completed, The Amazing Brentwood is set to be an unparalleled community with direct access to Brentwood Town Centre Skytrain station, the downtown core, and the North Shore. But before you book your viewing appointment, here’s a look at how this development offers a way of living that others don’t.

An ideal urban lifestyle

As a resident at The Amazing Brentwood, everything you need will be right downstairs (no joke). This includes fashion retailers, a celebrated restaurant collection, cafes, fitness studios, a one-acre signature plaza, a VIP movie theatre, and rotating pop-ups.

The retail line-up and urban centre design will create a seamless living experience where everything you need is within walking distance. In 2021, a 1,200-desk WeWork tower is slated to open, meaning you could even live, work, and play in the same community.

A centre for entertainment

Take movie nights to a new level at The Cineplex VIP Cinema with reserved recliner seating, a full bar, specialty food, and in-seat service. The Amazing Brentwood will also have BC’s first location of The Rec Room, Cineplex Entertainment’s new concept with interactive gaming, virtual reality, a full bowling alley, live performance spaces and multiple dining concepts including a sports bar decked out with big-screen TVs and a state-of-the-art sound system.

But that’s not where the entertainment ends. In Brentwood Plaza, there will be a signature water feature programmed to lights and music along with events, celebrations, and performances, taking place throughout the year.

Professionally managed homes

A common drawback of renting is the variability and unpredictability of private landlords. But this is something you don’t have to worry about at The Amazing Brentwood because homes will be professionally managed by SHAPE, the long-term developer and manager of the project.

SHAPE will be on-site and provide access to trades, services, and anything else you might need. Plus, everything from paying your rent to making requests will be seamlessly managed in real-time through an easy to use mobile app — it’s renting simplified.

BC’s first Sporting Life store

Sporting Life will be entering the BC market on October 17 with a store covering 44,000 sq. ft. in The Amazing Brentwood community.

The retailer combines fashion and sport, mixing upscale brands like Arc’teryx, Canada Goose, Moncler, Hugo Boss, and Nike with high-performance gear for activities like skiing, tennis, and cycling. Since the North Shore mountains, hiking trails, and bike routes are nearby, it will be the perfect place to foster an active Metro Vancouver lifestyle.

Modern design

Each home at The Amazing Brentwood has been carefully designed to embody modern design and maximize living space, natural light, and everyday convenience.

All homes include an expansive terrace, side-by-side washer and dryer, nine ft. ceilings, a designer L-shaped kitchen with stone countertops, kitchen island, and floor-to-ceiling cabinets with almost double the storage space.

Large pet-friendly suites

In addition to the small one-bedroom units typically found in the rental market, The Amazing Brentwood offers larger two-bedroom suites that are perfect for couples and families.

It’s rare to find a brand new rental building in Metro Vancouver that accepts pets. However, pets are welcome at The Amazing Brentwood (excited yet?), so you can find a home that suits your needs as you evolve through different stages of your life.   

Impressive amenities

Living at The Amazing Brentwood means you’ll have access to so much more than just a home. There will be over 15,000 sq. ft. of private amenities exclusively for residents to use. Additionally, there will be a 2,700 sq. ft. fitness facility to get those morning workouts checked off, as well as an outdoor lounge, guest suites, concierge, and an outdoor courtyard with shared BBQ areas and green space.
