Welcome to award-winning Boffo Developments’ Bassano. A park-like urban village on the cusp of Burnaby’s vibrant Brentwood neighbourhood. Inspired by their origins in Italy, Boffo introduces its first of four towers, a dramatic, 43-storey tower offering a collection of 318, one, two and three-bedroom homes, ranging from 654 up to 2,144 square feet.

Envisioned and masterfully designed by Boffo and award-winning Arcadis, the architecture brings together a tasteful balance of warm metal panels, bold dark stone, and expansive glass.


Bassano is a very special project for the Boffo family - it has been years in the making. The team has worked tremendously hard to curate a truly authentic ‘Made in Italy’ offering.” says Karen West, Boffo’s Director of Sales & Marketing.

Renowned for its unwavering commitment to unparalleled craftsmanship, Boffo’s approach to design results in a very unique brand of liveability.

Boffo has procured many of their materials and finishings directly from Italy, to create an authentic Italian homeowner experience. Imported custom cabinetry and built-in wardrobe systems, Bertazzoni appliances with 30” refrigerator, 30” convection oven and gas cooktop in every home, Gessi kitchen and bathroom fixtures, and beautiful Italian stone.


Inside these bright, airy homes is a fusion of function and beauty; with stunning stone-faced display walls incorporating open and closed storage, plus wide plank European flooring throughout. Nine-foot ceilings add to the homes’ spaciousness and air conditioning is a welcomed comfort.

Enter a five-star hotel-inspired lobby lounge with a full-service concierge, and a work-share lounge with a variety of spaces to focus. The family lounge offers a full catering kitchen with a long dining table, a media screening room, a kids' playroom, games and a lounge area.

When it’s time for a friendly game of Bocce, head to the park space. A designated play area for children and a dog-run area will make everyone very happy.
