Once a sleepy suburb of Vancouver, Burnaby has gone through a boom that started after Expo 86 and the installation of rapid transit above ground Skytrain line. Today the City of Burnaby has distinct communities within the city. Metrotown is undergoing massive development with the ever growing Metrotown mall, North Burnaby has remained quaint with it’s shops and now has it’s own Skytrain line connecting to downtown Vancouver. Other areas include neighbourhoods nearby Simon Fraser University, one of Vancouver’s top University.
Burnaby has a great feel to the city with excellent parks, nature, two lakes (Deer lake park & Burnaby Lake) and access to water ways, specifically up the Burrard Inlet and the Barnet Marine Park is likely one of Burnaby’s best kept secrets.
JDC has two rental buildings in Burnaby, Ferndale Court, located at 5130 Irving Manor, close to Metrotown and Bonsor Community Centre. Harbourview located at 7191 Barnet Road close to Barnet Marine Park and Simon Fraser University and Michelle Manor, located at 6075 Wilson Ave close to Central Park and within walking distance to Pattison Skytrain station.
