The first phase of Onni’s large scale mixed-use project known as Gilmore Place, will include three towers with 1,563 units. The 12.9 acre site next to the Gilmore Skytrain Station in the Brentwood area of Burnaby was initially approved via master plan earlier this year, though requires further detailed rezoning applications for each phase of the project.

Phase 1 of the multi-phase project is the subject of this rezoning and includes:
· a 64-storey signature tower with 643 units

The application describes the design rationale:
“The proposed tower design complements the quality and timelessness of the commercial and public open space components advanced under Rezoning Reference #15-54. Tower I and Tower III are designed in tandem to support the signature tower at the corner of Gilmore Avenue and Lougheed Highway. Tower I and Tower III are the counterpoint to Tower II in the use of dark and light colours, drawing from a charcoal and white motif. The subject tower is distinct from the other two towers in that it breaks up the verticality by using offset balconies with fritted balcony glass in a zipper like pattern. The tower terminates in a large lantern element at the corner as a beacon element symbolizing the entry into the Brentwood Town Centre. At the 35th floor is a Sky Lounge the provides residents within the Phase I the opportunity to have social gatherings with unobstructed views to the west and North Shore Mountains.
Residential entries are clearly demarcated on the exterior of the building with floor to ceiling glass, metal and stone elements. Atop the commercial podium is an expansive residential amenity, complete with 71,498 sq.ft. of indoor amenity area with fitness facility (gym, yoga, running and spinning), movie theatre, games room, lounge, golf simulators, bowling alley, indoor and outdoor pools, steam room and sauna, half-court basketball court, three party rooms, four guest suites, indoor and outdoor children’s play area, study centre, kitchen facilities, karaoke room, outdoor dog run, pet wash area and extensive outdoor leisure and landscaped area.
Within Phase I the Gilmore Plaza provides an open air, but weather protected linkage between on-street bus service on Gilmore Avenue and the SkyTrain station, with access to convenience commercial, signature retail, and anchor tenants. The Gilmore plaza is also connected by a grand staircase to second level commercial and retail uses, with opportunities for direct connection to the SkyTrain ticketing level. Movement to the second and third commercial levels is also accommodated by several escalator and elevator banks to ensure universal access and inclusion. The upper commercial levels are characterized by larger format uses with smaller commercial uses at the ground level to engage passersby. The third level allows for more flexible uses including service commercial uses, medical dental offices and institutional uses such as education and training facilities.

The Lougheed Drive-In Theatre was once located on the site. Opened in 1951, it had one screen and a 639 car capacity. The theatre also hosted swap meets in the 1970s, with participants selling and swapping a wide range of products. In 1981, the theatre ceased operations and was replaced in 1982 by the Commerce Court office buildings. In 2002 the Gilmore SkyTrain Station and Millenium Line opened.
The Gilmore SkyTrain station and Millenium Line guideway is the prominent feature of the northern and western portion of the site. Totem Court, a small street off of Dawson, has two small single-storey commercial buildings. Commerce Court, with its two six-storey office towers, lies at the east end of the site. To the east is the Destination Toyota Automobile Dealership and existing light-industrial buildings
The Gilmore Station site will become the high energy, western gateway of the Brentwood Town Centre (BTC). Capitalizing on the excellent mobilityoptions offered by the Gilmore SkyTrain station, a full range of uses will be developed around it. These will include offices, retail / commercial shops and services, restaurants and cafes, and residential homes. Contemporary, high quality buildings will have a warm, inviting character that encourages activity at the street level and strikes a dramatic skyline from a distance.
A major focus of the development will be significant office spaces—some in taller buildings and others in larger floorplates near the station. This variety of spaces will appeal to many organizations offering a multitude of business and job opportunities.
The buildings will be woven together by a rich tapestry of public spaces. These will range from bustling transit-oriented plazas to multi-function community plazas to quiet, tree-lined streets and laneways. Each will be integrated with the existing network of open spaces and streets, including Dawson Street, whose ‘high street’ character will be completed by the shops, plazas and generous sidewalks planned to line its north side.
