Find your centre at the top of Burnaby Mountain. Offering spacious apartments and townhomes next to vibrant shops and services, CentreBlock is your home in the heart of Simon Fraser’s thriving UniverCity community.
Spanning an entire block in the heart of the High Street district, the architecture is arranged in two primary structures to complement neighbouring densities and uses while creating connections and view corridors between them.
The apartment building to the south rises from a six-storey midrise in keeping with the High Street character to a slender 16-storey tower which marks the entrance to the commercial district. Along Highland Court to the north, the form is reduced to a row of 3-storey woodframe townhomes reflecting the residential nature of the street. The two buildings address each other across a wide internal courtyard which allows for public and private connectivity while providing privacy and greenspace for residents.

InteriorsSuites feature comfortable spaces within large footprints. Layouts prioritize kitchen and living areas while maintaining practical bedroom sizes and ample storage. CentreBlock also includes a range of unit types, from one and two bedroom apartments for couples and singles, to three bedroom townhomes for growing families.
Interior finishes balance modern style with a liveable feel. Flat panel cabinetry, composite stone counters and minimalist hardware are clean and simple while natural wood floors provide a sense of texture and warmth. Purchasers have a choice of two inspired design schemes, Warm White or Cool Grey.
NeighbourhoodIdeally positioned in the High Street district, residents will find day-to-day shopping, Highlands Elementary School and the newly opened Childcare Centre just outside their door. CentreBlock also borders the east side of campus, offering one of the closest living options for university employees and students.
Beyond the High Street, the community presents an abundance of opportunities for recreation. Residents can access SFU’s extensive facilities or spend their time exploring acres of natural forests through a vast network of hiking and biking trails in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area.
SustainabilityWe focus on five key tenets of green design: low-impact site planning, efficient energy usage, reduced water consumption, responsible construction practices and excellent indoor air quality. The result is an approach to development that meets even SFU’s stringent environmental standards.
The upshot of forward-thinking design is tangible savings on daily operating costs. Efficient plumbing fixtures, high quality windows and enhanced insulation reduce water and space heating charges. At the same time, Energy Star appliances and compact fluorescent lights contribute to lower monthly electrical bills. With Liberty, it pays to be sustainable.
