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.
