Intracorp and the City of Burnaby have a shared vision to transform Beresford Street and the Maywood community into a vibrant new town centre complete with extra-wide sidewalks, tree-lined streets, outdoor seating, street-front cafés and retail.
Part one of that transformation has already begun with MetroPlace. Now under construction, MetroPlace will begin to create a wide, lively streetscape that will turn Beresford Street into a great street – one that we believe all of the residents of Maywood will come to embrace.
Part two of the transformation centres around Silver – Intracorp’s newest 38-storey tower of modern condos in Burnaby. Silver will be a sleek, high tech residential building, offering state-of-the-art technology.
With these two towers as key anchors, the street and the surrounding area can fill in with improved services, shops and public areas. There will be public art pieces to create an art walk (we’ll tell you more about that in the coming weeks), outdoor seating and there will be access to existing and future public spaces like the library. Ultimately, the plan is for a new, revitalized transit station; a new connection to McKay Avenue; and potential for more neighbourhood daycare.
Getting into this neighbourhood early is your best opportunity to see real and sustained growth in the value of your investment. The neighbourhood will only continue to transform and become even more desirable than it already is.
These are exciting times for the Metrotown area. Be sure to be a part of it.
