The southwest corner of Lougheed and Willingdon, formerly the site of a Canadian Tire and industrial landscape, is being transformed into a modern multi-tower community: SOLO, short for South of Lougheed. With plans to make Lougheed Highway more pedestrian friendly, and the long-term vision of the Brentwood Mall redevelopment, there is lots to suggest this pocket of North Burnaby has a bright and growing future. Great transit links, a dedicated bike lane and myriad amenities nearby make this a very liveable area and help to give this development a pretty high Walk Score. REW.ca spoke with Appia Developments'sales manager Lisa Murrell about the SOLO community. Whole Foods, retail, business and relaxation all help form the legacy of this development.
