Brentwood Block

A 7.9-acre, full block, transit-oriented site in the heart of Brentwood

Located within one of Metro Vancouver’s fastest-growing communities, Brentwood Block is a visionary and transformative project that will redevelop the 4600 block of Lougheed Highway, into a lively, walkable, transit‑oriented community. Upon completion, it will deliver six rental and condo towers with retail and office space, and a significant pedestrianized public realm with central plazas and green spaces. The project also includes a 100,000 sq. ft. community centre owned and operated by the City of Burnaby, which is estimated to attract over 1M visitors to the site annually.

The thoughtful retail curation aims to create a human scale experience and cultivate community. Retail storefronts throughout the site are oriented around plazas and alleyways with patios that spill out onto the public realm. Uses such as restaurants, bistros and cafes are envisioned to activate the site from morning to night. 

Brentwood Block is anticipated to be one of the final areas developed in Burnaby’s emerging Town Centre, stitching together neighbouring developments, linking the SkyTrain station to the future Brentwood Park South, and emerging as a retail destination and cultural hub at the heart of the Brentwood Town Centre. 

The scale and size of the development will enable us to bring our well-established expertise in place-making in urban areas to the Brentwood community, as well as delivering on our objective to have a meaningful, positive social impact in the communities where we develop.
