Shape Living is transforming Burnaby’s Willingdon and Lougheed neighborhood into North America’s largest and most impressive new residential community. Formerly known as Brentwood Town Centre, Shape is redefining the area as “The Amazing Brentwood.”
The project will include a commercial district with shopping, dining and entertainment, capped with some seriously impressive homes. Ten residential towers up to 70 storeys tall are planned and will be home to up to 4,200 residences. Two other towers will be set aside for offices. The existing Brentwood Town Centre mall is getting a complete facelift and will re-open before residents move in.
“The sheer size of the 28-acre Brentwood development makes it noteworthy, but what we are really passionate about is how Brentwood takes the art of great place making and the convenience of mixed-use transit-oriented development to a whole new level,” says Darren Kwiatkowski, Executive Vice President of Development for Shape Living. “Brentwood will deliver a truly unique offering in the marketplace.”
Transit is a major part of the new Amazing Brentwood community, with SkyTrain arriving directly in the heart of the development at the public plaza, a one-acre space that will be full of shops and restaurants, with over 350 shops and services available once the project is complete. Two of the residential towers will surround the plaza, making shopping, dining and recreation just an elevator ride away. Homeowners at The Amazing Brentwood will also have access to a fully equipped fitness facility, music room and plenty of outdoor space to relax or visit with neighbours and friends, among other amenities.
The first tower is called Brentwood ONE, and will include 291 condominium homes. Luxury homes will start on the 33rd floor and rise to the 63rd floor. Below that will be boutique rental properties.
The one-bedroom-and-flex condominiums will be available in a range of floorplans between 539 and 560 square feet, while the two-bedrooms will range between 728 and 903 square feet.
“They have paid incredible attention to detail at The Amazing Brentwood,” says Tracie McTavish, president at Rennie Marketing Systems. “They’ve thought things through, and everything is high quality.”
Among the gorgeous features at Brentwood ONE will be amazing views from every home and gourmet Italian-imported kitchens with tons of storage, a gas cooktop and a convenient kitchen island.
“These kitchens are 40 per cent larger than the usual kitchens,” says McTavish.
Nine-foot ceilings are standard throughout, and every home includes a spacious balcony perfect for entertaining.
“Shape Living really looked at the livability of these homes,” says McTavish. “They call it ‘intelligent living.'”
Shape is providing some thoughtful details in every home as well, including a side-by-side washer and dryer, USB and four-plug outlets and at least one parking stall and storage space.
The sales centre will open for previews on April 26.
“This is something you have to come in and experience,” says McTavish. “It’s that impressive. They’re really catering to consumer demand. If you are planning to buy a condo anywhere, you need to come here first.”
Homes at Brentwood ONE start at $299,900 for a one-bedroom and $382,900 for a two-bedroom home. For more information, visit www.theamazingbrentwood.com or stop by the presentation centre and three show homes at 4567 Lougheed Highway, Burnaby.
