MetroPlace is a 342 unit, 46-storey development in Burnaby’s Metrotown neighbourhood. The residential tower component sits on top of a 4-storey commercial podium on Beresford, and a 5-storey stacked townhouse podium component on Telford. A series of 2-storey townhouses along the site’s southern property line surrounds a courtyard.
The project incorporates up to sixteen thousand square feet of city-owned community amenity space, granted in exchange for an additional amenity density bonus. It is the first high density development to take advantage of the “supplemental Community Benefit Bonus Policy” for Burnaby’s town centres.
The new block is designed to become the focus for public events that will take place on Beresford Street. Streets are widened, trees planted, adding cafes, stores and an artwalk making it more pedestrian-friendly.
