Town Centres

Our four town centres, one within each quadrant, offer a full range of housing and services.  The town centres help to provide complete communities within each quadrant, providing residents with an option to walk, bike, take transit or drive to locally access a mix of goods and services to meet their daily needs. 

All of Burnaby’s four town centres provide office, retail, and supportive professional services. All are served by rapid transit. All provide an abundance of higher density housing opportunities.

Burnaby has one Regional City Centre (Metrotown) and three Municipal Town Centres (Brentwood, Edmonds, and Lougheed), as defined by Metro Vancouver's Regional Growth Strategy
