Old time Burnaby residents will remember the old nightclub near the corner of Gilley and Kingsway as The Zipper, Studebaker's Cabaret, Coconuts or Onyx.
But with the area changing and being revitalized, the building at 7012 Randolph St. will now be part of a community celebration on Sept. 4 and the unveiling of a community mural by local artist Todd Polich.
The building is now occupied by Nova Health and Fitness.
In the last two years, Dean Kotopski, a partner in the business, said he's seen the area changing for the better.
Kotopski is optimistic about the area's future as he sees more and more people coming into his gym to work out who are feeling comfortable in the area.
The good cheer will be in full evidence at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 4 when Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and members of city council plan to attend a community party at Nova Health and Fitness.
Refreshments will be provided, and there will be a brief reception and a tour of the facility.
