Metrotown is a Town Centre
Since the City of Burnaby’s 1977 development plan for Metrotown Condo developments, the area has thrived, and the City has designated Metrotown as the “official downtown core” of Burnaby. It is one of the city’s four officially designated town centres, as well as one of Metro Vancouver’s regional town centres. This is in response to the City of Burnaby’s commitment to making a strong downtown core that people want to live, play and work in is being responded to in the new community plan.
