Thind Properties has applied to the City of Burnaby to rezone a 57,809 SF site at 6525-6585 Sussex Avenue for a new mixed use development including market residential, non-market rental and retail and office uses. The original rezoning application was made over a year ago, but the details have now been finalized and it is now ready to move forward to public hearing.
Four more towers are being proposed for the Brentwood Town Centre area of Burnaby in two separate rezoning applications that went to Burnaby City Council this week for first reading. They are:
2242 Alpha Avenue
This project is being built by Monark Group, who bought the site in February 2015 for $6,750,000. The plan for the 41,574 SF, M2 zoned site is for a high-rise residential tower atop a 4-storey above-grade parking podium and some underground parking. The above-ground parking is required due to groundwater conditions in the area. The anticipated density is 3.6 FAR under the RM4s designation.
2425 Beta Avenue
This site is located on the West side of Beta Avenue between Dawson Street and the BNSF rail line, and is being developed by Thind Properties, who acquired it in 2013 for $31,500,000. The plan for the 201,247 SF, M2 zoned site includes three highrise residential towers atop a 4-storey parking podium. It is similarly seeking a 3.6 FAR density designation under the RM4s guidelines. The plan includes a 30 metre dedication to extend Alaska Street.
