I think you may be right. I know Burnaby is high on their list as well.

Sounds like a store like that would work in the area once a couple of these new major projects are finished!

I could see it. Nice contrast to Walmart, who is apparently expanding their Lougheed Mall store to add more groceries.

and they would be enough of a drawing card to survive as (essentially) a standalone in a smaller project.

The tallest tower proposed there looks to be 600 feet, if not slightly over!

So let me get this straight. Is this a seperate proposal and not the same one for Brentwood released a couple of months ago?

*edit

I just checked back in the suburban updates thread. That other proposal I was referring to is actually situated on Lougheed and Willingdon kitty corner to this new proposal. Wow! Multiple 60 story proposals in Burnaby? I never thought I'd live to see the day.

Really though? Burnaby's proposals are flying. We already have two major towers U/C and the station square concept showed a 56 storey.


Brentwood would be a great mall to redevelop, I really hope they keep the white "tent" thing though. There's so much land available around it, I hate the huge parking lot. They should expand the mall over the parking lot and connect it to the station, create streetfront retail at willingdon and lougheed, and keep the northern and eastern parking lots as their at-grade lots.

they don't make any mention of target or zellers - but it looks like they are repositioning it?

Thanks for posting!

It's got a theatre complex too.
The second level catwalk to the enclosed mall looks cool - If they're smart, it will connect directly from the Brentwood SkyTrain Station to the mall (and add escalators to grade).

It'll be interesting to see how the parking works out - that's a challenging site because of the grade. All the parking garage entrances seem to be from the "main street" rather than directly from Lougheed "diving" into the hillside (like Metropolis at Metrotown).

With the suped-up lifestyle centre approach it isn't as impermeable as Metropolis at Metrotown, so that may be a good thing - the question is whether it'll be a traffic nightmare just to enter the underground parking (but you can probably enter from Beta Ave. as well)

I see "future residential" on the backside of the mall - but no "future commercial".

So where's the bus loop?

Found this old aerial of Brentwood Mall when it was partially outdoor plaza (on the upper level) with a higher ceiling for the mall corridor):

Compare with Global Air Photo taken May 13, 2010:

I also started a thread for vintage suburb pics, but this one is relevant to the Brentwood redevelopment discussion above.

Found this on the Shape website:

http://shapeproperties.com/sites/def...etailers_0.pdf

Notable retailers confirmed for the Brentwood Mall "High Street" redevelopment:

Walmart
Cineplex VIP
London Drugs (Townhouses to go in existing location)
Marshalls


EDIT: Pointed out by SpongeG in another thread that the PDF is for Abbotsford.

Was hoping for better quality. There are Walmarts just down the road in both directions.

Examples being? I can't think of many retailers that 1) could take up that much space and 2) do not already have a presence at Metrotown.

Not thrilled about Walmart, but it fits the area.

Target is supposed to take over the Zellers as well, I believe.

EDIT: Never mind, discussion is moot.

Thanks the list, there any updates to be made though, seems it hasn't been updated since October.

For example: "Silver" 38 floors http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=197227



Also, if possible, could someone make a map showin the location of all these projects?

I'm thinking it may have been an earlier proposal for the Sovereign site (Kingsway and Willingon)


The Shape Properties website has the Brentwood public hearing materials
(they've taken down the "plans"). Includes some renders of the plaza areas:

http://www.shapeproperties.com/sites...n%20Boards.pdf


and the cover of their Lougheed Leasing Brochure has this massing diagram of future development at Lougheed Town Centre:
http://www.shapeproperties.com/sites...12,%202012.pdf

Quote:
Revitalizing East Burnaby's Town Centre

Acquired in June 2010, this existing mall is situated on a skytrain route and at the busy intersection of Lougheed Highway and Austin Avenue. Its' great positioning provides it with the extraordinary potential to become a dominant shopping centre in the region.

Lougheed Town Centre is to undergo a redevelopment and densification plan that calls for approximately 2 million square feet of mixed-use density to be built out. Much like Brentwood Town Centre, completion of Lougheed's redevelopment will result in a signature urban destination that is an attractive home for residents, workers and businesses, and a draw for the residents of Burnaby and beyond.

I've seen the Brentwood pdf earlier, I have to say looking at page 23 I'm not a fan of the proposed skyline. The height at Solo seems to follow the Mountain backdrop well as does most of the other towers. The Brentwood proposal just throws it all out of whack. It would be more suited for more towers at ~30 stories, bulkier podiums instead of a tower up to 60 stories. Anyways that's my opinion.
