The area around Brentwood Town Centre in Burnaby continues to transform, with new residential towers changing the skyline.

Most of the recent development in the area has been concentrated around the Brentwood SkyTrain station and the Amazing Brentwood project, but developers are beginning to look eastward to the area around Holdom SkyTrain station.

The area surrounding the Holdom SkyTrain station is mostly low-rise and industrial, but that’s beginning to change.

One project that will make a dramatic impact is Étoile Living by Millennium Development.

The development at Goring Street and Douglas Road will consist of two residential condominium towers (32 and 26-storeys) above work/live townhouses. Early previews for real estate agents have already begun, and presales should commence shortly.

Étoile amenities

Landscaped podium rooftop deck featuring:

  • heated outdoor swimming pool
  • plots for urban agriculture
  • BBQ area
  • children’s play area

There will also be an indoor fitness centre, and a signature public art piece will be installed at the intersection of Douglas and Goring.

Étoile unit mix

398 units are proposed in total, including:

  • 196 one-bedroom units
  • 182 two-bedroom and den units
  • 12 three-bedroom units
  • Eight townhouses

The development will feature 44 individually-metered electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the parkade, for residents and visitors.

All units will have central air conditioning, and almost every unit will be a corner unit. A porte cochère driveway will welcome residents to the development.

The architect on the project is Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc., and presales should get underway soon. The development is expected to be completed by 2020.
