Really? Where?

Up until about 5 or 6 years ago only vancant lots, warehouses, strip malls and parking lots were being redeveloped into condo towers. Maybe the odd single family home. I don't recall any walk up being demolished before the boom on Beresford Street started.

The Metrotown Plan, for one - all the new towers south of Central Boulevard used to be walkups. There was a big backlash in 2017-18 that cost Derek Corrigan his job.

*north of Imperial

South of Imperial is all SFH's


And you probably mean the Marlborough neighbourhood between Nelson Ave to the west and Marlborough to the East and between Imperial to the South and Bennett to the North. (The Met towers, Park, Polaris, Vittorio, Imperial and I forget the other one)

I think the key with that cluster of towers versus the (newer) ones on the Beresford Tower row, is that these ones have almost no rental or non-market component at all. They were all built as strata.

Most of the new tower proposals or currently under construction in the Maywood area either have some rental replacement in their podiums or a separate shorter tower that's all non-market and rental replacement units.

Check the data table on page 85 of the Metro Vancouver Housing Data Book. Between 2007 and 2018 Metro Vancouver added a total of 7,205 purpose-built rental units. The City of Vancouver added 47% of them; 3,372 more in 2018 than in 2007. Burnaby had 875 fewer - a much bigger loss than any other municipality.

is there a plan for all the SFH's between The Amazing Brentwood and Hastings street?

It's quite the stark difference between the Towers of Brentwood and the next street is all houses.

At the moment, they'll stay just as they are (maybe with a laneway added). It's the 1960s Grand Bargain.

BCIT INSPIRE Campaign celebrates the soft opening of the Health Sciences Centre

BCIT is excited to celebrate the soft opening of the new Health Sciences Centre on the Burnaby Campus. With generous support from industry leaders and the philanthropic community, the INSPIRE Campaign raised $11.7 million towards the development of the state-of-the-art facility. The Province also provided an investment of $66.6-million into the project.

The Health Sciences Centre, standing at four-storeys and 111,460 square-feet, is a critical hub for providing transformative, applied education to current and future generations of healthcare students in BC. Come fall 2022, the integrated and comprehensive Centre is expected to welcome BCIT Health Sciences students into its learning spaces, as well as to support 32 programs.
