Burnaby will host an open house for the public to have their say on the Buchanan West master plan, which proposes 6,000 homes and 12 highrise towers for the Brentwood neighbourhood.
Bounded by Lougheed Highway, Gilmore Avenue, Halifax Street and Madison Avenue/Douglas Street, the site is currently home to a Staples, fitness centres and a hotel, among other businesses.
The open house on Feb. 9 is a chance for people to meet the project team, ask questions and learn about the proposal.
The Buchanan West plan includes 1.5 million square feet of commercial space, according to a city staff report, "as well as the potential for thousands of jobs in the retail, hospitality, and knowledge-based industries."
"The proposed vision and concepts reflect the transformation of the area into a distinct walkable and transit-connected neighbourhood," states the city's website.
