Offering convertible living from spacious balconies, the newest phase of Concord Brentwood, Hillside East, is now selling in Burnaby. The two-tower condo development by Concord Pacific is the second phase in the master-planned community and features one- to three-bedroom homes. With two of the 11 planned buildings in the community already sold out, Hillside East is receiving an overwhelming response. Interested buyers are encouraged to visit the presentation centre at 4750 Kingsway in Burnaby, open daily from 11:30am to 5:30pm.
Transforming into a vibrant new community, Concord Brentwood will be surrounded by a beautiful natural setting, modern conveniences and a comprehensive transit system. At the heart of the community is a 13-acre urban park, which includes the Stickleback Creek Riparian boardwalks and viewing decks. Residents can shop at The Amazing Brentwood shopping centre — a rebuilt and renamed mall that will boast more than 250 retail stores upon completion. As Concord Brentwood develops, more amenities will become available, such as a proposed school, a state-of-the-art fitness and recreation hub at the Super Club, and 100,000 square feet of retail space in the Village Central. In addition, Concord Brentwood is a short distance away from downtown Vancouver, allowing residents to travel there within a 15-minute SkyTrain ride.
“We’re making this very friendly to owner-occupiers — we want to give people the same kind of feel as having a house with a backyard where they can relax, take the kids, and spend time outdoors,” says Grant Murray, Concord Pacific’s Senior VP of Sales.
Designed by renowned architect Walter Francl, Hillside East boasts stunning architecture that evokes a powerful presence. Both residential towers are raised above the treetops, creating a soaring 38-foot vertical space below. Homeowners will be greeted by beautiful landscapes, along with water and lighting features that adorn the grand arrival motor court. Offering an expansive view of the future park, the building’s dramatic, sky-lofted canopy roof floats above the lobby podium, linking the two buildings. On every level of the towers, balconies curve gracefully upwards, mimicking gentle waves ebbing and flowing in the skyline.
Complete with intelligent building features, Concord Brentwood will be the first community in Burnaby with electric vehicle charging outlets in every residential parking stall. Hillside East will also include a building-wide water-softening system, high-speed elevators, complimentary wifi on all amenity levels, and a touchless automatic car wash facility.
Unique from other condo projects, Hillside East includes convertible living in all suites, allowing residents to bring the West Coast Canadian outdoors even closer. Every home is equipped with an expansive outdoor living space with generous balconies that range from 158 to 276 square feet in the one-bedroom units, and up to 600 square feet in the three-bedroom homes. Creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space, the balconies include floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, porcelain floor tiles and a wood-effect ceiling finish. Plus, heating elements recessed into the ceilings will help keep balconies at a comfortable temperature all-year round.
“It’s the same idea as having a convertible top on a car — you roll it down to enjoy nice sunny days,” says Murray.
The interiors are meticulously crafted to ensure a functional lifestyle. The homes feature central heating and cooling in every principal room, and intelligent thermostats that adjust your living space temperature for optimal comfort year-round. In the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, custom-built closet and drawer organizers by LIV Interiors provide smart storage solutions.
Perfect for entertaining, the functional kitchens are replete with custom wood-grain laminate cabinets and drawer organizers, along with generous shelving. The luxurious bathrooms are complete with beautiful Calacatta porcelain tile flooring, shower and tub surround, polished chrome Grohe fixtures and stunning soft lighting.
Upon entering the grand central lobby at Hillside East, homeowners will be greeted by the concierge service. Spread over three levels, amenities include an entertainment lounge and sports and games lounge, a media/music room with karaoke equipment, a study room, a multi-purpose ping pong and yoga room, a fitness centre and a pet-grooming room. Outdoors, residents can entertain guests on the ample terrace space, play ping pong in the leisure park or go for a walk along the scenic trails.
As a first-time home buyer incentive, Concord Pacific offers Canadian residents a 25 per cent deposit structure, 35 per cent for foreign buyers, and 20 per cent for first-time buyers who qualify under BC’s provincial guidelines.
