Metrotown as Burnaby’s only Regional Town Center

Metrotown is the regional town center of Burnaby. Brentwood, Edmonds, and Lougheed are municipal town centres.

Each town centre serves one quadrant of the City and offers a full range of housing and services. These areas provide for higher density forms of housing and are the primary commercial focus for the City and their respective quadrants. As distance from the Town Centres increases, there is a generally progressive decrease of residential densities toward single and two family neighbourhoods.

The town centres help to provide complete communities within each quadrant, with access to the mix of goods and services to meet their daily needs.
