Lumina Brentwood ads appearing

The Lumina Brentwood project at the south foot of Beta Ave is beginning to rev up its promotions. As the site is now seeing the demolition of existing buildings for excavation.   The site will also have its sales centre located there.

 The development will be situated across Beta Ave from the upcoming Concord Brentwood project and will eventually see a pedestrian overpass connecting Beta Ave over the railway tracks to Still Creek Ave and Costco to the south.

Lumina Brentwood in Burnaby will seamlessly merge urban living with the great outdoors


Brentwood is one of Burnaby’s most desirable neighbourhoods, and developer THIND Properties Ltd. has plans to make it even more exciting. This spring it will be introducing Lumina Brentwood, a four-tower residential community that will provide a close connection to both nature and the city.
With prices starting in the $380,000s, Lumina Brentwood will offer the best value in the Brentwood area by far. A wide selection of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes will be available, and with nine-foot ceilings and expansive windows, all will feel incredibly spacious. Other modern touches will include air conditioning and a full-size stainless steel Bosch appliance set. In short, all the ingredients for comfortable contemporary living will be on hand.
Of course, part of Lumina Brentwood’s appeal will be its convenient location in the Brentwood neighbourhood. Located on Beta Street just south of Lougheed Highway, the residential community will be within walking distance of a huge number of urban amenities, from shopping at Brentwood Mall and Whole Foods to dining at restaurants like Cactus Club. And, as mentioned, plenty of outdoor activities will be easily accessible — you’ll be able to cycle along the Central Valley bike path, ski at Grouse and Seymour mountains or canoe at Buntzen Lake.
If you ever do need to venture further afield, that won’t be a problem. Lumina Brentwood will be incredibly close to the SkyTrain, meaning that Vancouver, Surrey and Coquitlam won’t be far.
THIND Properties Ltd. will be opening a presentation centre for Lumina Brentwood this spring, and it will come complete with three fully furnished showhomes. To be among the first to receive updates and new information, be sure to click here to register.
