The vibrant community of Gilmore Station will be coming soon to the Brentwood neighbourhood in Burnaby. In late January 2014, Onni announced that they had acquired the 12.5-acre Gilmore Station area lands from Standard Life. The site, which is partially vacant, and partially occupied by industrial and office buildings, was reportedly sold for approximately $103.8 million.
With over 12 acres of high-density mixed-use retail, office and residential development conveniently located at the Gilmore SkyTrain Station, the master-planned Gilmore Station community will soon be an exciting new urban centre for Burnaby. Located at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Gilmore Avenue, this vibrant high-traffic retail community promises to be a draw for neighbouring communities, passers-by, and residents alike. Its prime location adjacent to Brentwood Centre, also currently under massive redevelopment, means that the Gilmore Station community will truly be at the centre of Burnaby’s larger revitalization and urban growth master-plan.
Gilmore Station will have the potential to provide up to 2.5 million sq. ft. of residential development in over 5 high-rise towers. The first phase of up to 1.0 million sq. ft. of commercial space is preleasing now. Gilmore Station is set to become one of the most sought-after and visited urban centres in Burnaby and Metro Vancouver.
The preliminary development plan includes the following features:
- Development site with over 12 acres of land
- Up to 2.5 million sq. ft. of residential development and 1 million sq. ft. of commercial and retail space
- Transit-oriented development at Gilmore SkyTrain station
- Approximately 15 minutes to downtown Vancouver, by SkyTrain
- Located adjacent to Brentwood’s community redevelopment
Comprised of over 12 acres of land, Gilmore Station is anticipated to feature approximately 500,000 square feet of newly constructed transit-oriented retail space with an inviting communal plaza and an abundance of residential development, directly on-site.
Surrounded by long-established neighbourhoods and on-site multi-family residential developments, Gilmore Station will offer an architecturally unique, walkable and convenient shopping experience for current and future locals alike. Given the village’s strategic and transit-oriented location at Gilmore Avenue and Lougheed Highway, next to Gilmore SkyTrain Station, commuters from the surrounding communities will further augment the demand for Gilmore Station’s collection of stores, boutique retailers, and restaurant vendors. Gilmore Station is poised to be an exciting new shopping destination for all of Metro Vancouver.
Gilmore Station is strategically located in the vibrant Brentwood region of North Burnaby. In addition, the SkyTrain Station situated on the property makes this one of the most attractive office opportunities in Metro Vancouver. This community will offer up to one million square feet of new sustainable office space and is anticipated to provide up to 2,500 new condo units for residents to call home.
Gilmore Station is part of Burnaby’s larger revitalization and transit-oriented urban growth masterplan. Located at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Gilmore Avenue, this vibrant high-traffic retail community will draw neighbouring communities, passers-by, and residents alike. Its prime location at Gilmore SkyTrain Station connects the Gilmore Station community to the rest of Metro Vancouver.
