A site midway between the Metrotown and Royal Oak SkyTrain stations will soon be redeveloped into a 34-storey condominium tower and a four-storey affordable rental apartment building.
The properties, at 6556, 6566, 6580 and 6596 Marlborough Avenue, fall under Burnaby’s Metrotown Downtown Plan, and are currently occupied by three low-rise apartment buildings.
The upcoming tower, designed by GBL Architects, will include an “Al Fresco” dining balcony overlooking a small pocket park with public seating, as seen in the rendering below.
The development is backed by Accorde Properties Corp and will be known as Marlborough. It will contain a total of 306 units, including 47 market rental units and 41 non-market rental units.
