Dating back to when Skytrain arrived in December 1985, deluxe 1 & 2 bedroom condo towers and commercial buildings have made for a dramatic Burnaby skyline. Today with developers responding to market demand, particularly with downsizing baby boomers, current new and planned luxury towers in the Metrotown neighbourhood have room for families with 2 bedroom and den and 3 bedroom suites with sliding wall balconies available for the discerning buyer. As a destination, Metrotown is one of the true shopping meccas in Canada’s west. With the combined impact of Metropolis, the Crystal Mall, Station Square and Silver City, the Metrotown neighbourhood has over 500 shops and services, all easily accessed by Skytrain, bus and vehicle.
