With towers as high as 70 stories proposed, the development will dwarf the massive Solo District project which is close to breaking ground at the kiddie corner from Brentwood Mall. The project is expected to begin with the southwest corner which will see the construction of 2 residential high-rises with commercial business podiums as well as a low-rise building (Burnaby Now and Burnaby NewsLeader stories below). This site will also be the location for a public plaza surrounded by entertainment amenities.
Phase 2 of the BMR will occur at the southeast section of the site and will include a 50, 000 square foot food store and 2 residential towers.
I will expect residents of the single-family Brentwood Park neighbourhood immediately to the north to rightfully express their concerns about the prospect of increased automobile traffic and tall towers looming over their backyards.
