Our town centres–self-sufficient and connected communities in each quadrant of the city
Burnaby is a great place to live, learn, work, and play. Our 4 town centres offer a full range of housing options and retail and professional services for residents that are easy to get to by walking, biking, transit or driving. We offer plenty of higher density housing options, including towers, medium-sized walk-ups and townhouses.
