Metrotown Centre

Burnaby B.C. ● Commercial

Metrotown Centre first opened in 1986 – attached to the Sears department store operating at that location since the early 1950s – on land that had previously held warehouses, other light industry, and a supermarket, and which was adjacent to the former Vancouver Interurban Rail line (now the route for the SkyTrain). The mall has been expanded and renovated several times, and has contributed to the rapid growth of the area’s population.
