Help Burnaby plan for the future of Kingsway and Edmonds

The city is hosting two online public consultation sessions regarding the conceptual plan of a 4.5-acre publicly owned site in Edmonds Town Centre.
The Kingsway Edmonds conceptual plan is up for online public consultation on June 21 and 23.

If you have strong opinions on the 4.5-acre triangular wedge of land at the corner of Kingsway and Edmonds, the city wants to hear from you.

On June 21 and 23, the City of Burnaby will host virtual information sessions on Zoom as part of the public consultation for the publicly owned land at the heart of the Edmonds Town Centre.

The conceptual plan under review includes over 1,400 purpose-built rentals at varying rates, about 1,000 market strata residential units, a variety of commercial spaces, public amenities and a public plaza.

That includes five new towers on the land, which is jointly owned by BC Housing and the City of Burnaby, ranging from 33 to 52 storeys.

The plan would replace two mid-rise apartments from the 1970s that house 334 residents in 331 non-market rental units, a majority of whom (78 per cent) are over the age of 55.

A replacement tower, including non-market units for those residents, would be built first, before demolishing the existing two buildings.

The current plan anticipates an additional 1,076 market strata units, 875 new rental units at 10 per cent below market rates, 300 market rental units and 233 rental units at 20 per cent below CMHC market median. Retail and office space are also included.

The information sessions include a presentation followed by breakout sessions where you can share your thoughts. The presentation will be recorded and posted online for those unable to attend.

Results of the public consultation and the refined proposal will be the subject of a future public hearing in early 2023.
