The centrepiece of the 26-acre residential-retail project is a 120,000-square-foot outdoor beachfront oasis
Concord Pacific’s new residential complex in Burnaby’s Brentwood district will have something any stranded snowbird can get behind: its own “tropical” beach oasis.
The development is due to finish two towers of a planned three this year, with previews starting this week and sales later this month.
The centrepiece of the 26-acre residential-retail project is a 120,000 square foot outdoor beachfront and running track.
Oh, and a bowling alley too.
The oasis idea was inspired by beachfront resorts like the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki Beach.
It will include an upper-level 400 metre running and walking track, and a garden area overlooking a ground-level lounging area and lagoon. The outdoor beachfront can also be viewed year-round from the indoor pool.
Concord Pacific senior vice-president Grant Murray said the idea is to offer views of water that can “provide people with a sense of relaxation, which is why we all go in search of tropical and waterfront vacations.”
He calls it “an inspiring wellness escape that is light to look at and fun to experience. Regardless of the weather, it provides incredible water views for residents.”
The oasis will be designed for lounging around in summer and will give a hint of the tropics even in winter when viewed from indoors.
The finished Concord Brentwood development will feature three towers with more than 900 residences plus retail and commercial space at street level.
