The Brentwood redevelopment plan envisions a signature destination with an urban feel that will also support sustainable lifestyles, where people can shop, work, live and play. The mixed-use development project includes 1.3 million SF of retail space, 500,000 SF of office space and high-rise residential towers. As a mixed-use, transit-oriented city core, the new Brentwood will be a preferred shopping, leisure and entertainment destination for the region and an attractive home for residents and businesses with the introduction of new residential and commercial office opportunities.
The Brentwood project will be built in four phases over 20 years. It will bring 350 new shops and restaurants to the shopping centre’s site and includes plans for ten towers including two office towers between 30 to 40 storeys tall, plus a 50,000 SF grocery store. The remaining towers will be residential with up to 4,200 units to house as many as 8,400 people. Glotman•Simpson is the principal structural engineer on the project, which is complete with tenant relocations, building upgrades, new buildings and parkade construction.
The first phase of the project is 8-acres in size right next to the SkyTrain station on the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Lougheed Highway. It will be developed as an extensive outdoor pedestrian shopping area with high-end retail outlets that could include interactive public art, landscaped areas, street furniture, restaurants, bars, cafes and a major movie theatre.
