Find Your Centre on Burnaby Mountain
Located in SFU’s UniverCity community on Burnaby Mountain, CentreBlock is a mixed‐use development comprised of 26 townhomes, 158 apartments and approximately 34,000 square feet of commercial floor area.
Spanning an entire block in the heart of the High Street district, the architecture is arranged in two primary structures to complement neighbouring densities and uses while creating connections and view corridors between them.
The apartment building to the south rises from a six‐storey midrise in keeping with the High Street character to a 17‐storey tower which marks the entrance to the commercial district. Along Highland Court to the north, the form is reduced to a row of 3‐storey woodframe townhomes reflecting the residential nature of the street. The two buildings address each other across a wide internal courtyard which allows for public and private connectivity while providing privacy and greenspace for residents.
