Akimbo is Redefining the Skyline in Brentwood

Burnaby's first super prime tower offers a new level of luxury
By Michelle Hopkins Oct 16, 2020

Brentwood has really grown up. Today, this is a sought-after neighbourhood with great outdoor cafes, fabulous shopping, parks, trails, recreational amenities, and a historic business district, all within walking distance. This is where family-owned developer IMANI Development chose for its newest and arguably its most spectacular tower – Akimbo.

“Akimbo is the first super prime tower outside of downtown Vancouver and home buyers love it - they have made Akimbo the most successful tower launch since 2018,” says Cam Good, President of Key Marketing. “It's a huge win, not just for IMANI, but for all of Metro Vancouver as all developers have now seen that investment in truly beautiful architecture pays off for the developer and is a wonderful gift to everyone who will enjoy looking at it for years to come.”

Nestled in one of Burnaby’s most livable, fastest growing urban communities, Akimbo is an architecturally stunning 40-storey luxury high-rise glass and concrete tower soaring against the backdrop of North Burnaby’s historic real estate district.

“Akimbo is the centre-point of the new and improved Brentwood and offers a wonderful walking and shopping experience to a high street, Brentwood Mall,” says Good. “Akimbo is just one block from Skytrain - not right up against the Skytrain station - and not too far to walk. Perfect.”

Perfectly positioned along quiet streets, Akimbo is an exclusive collection of 350 one, two and three-bedroom+ condos, ranging from 460 to 1,405 square feet of thoughtfully designed spaces.

As soon as you enter through a glass lobby showcased by stylish seating areas and 24-hour concierge services, you know you are in for timeless elegance and sophistication throughout.

Designed by award-winning IBI Group Architects, the attention to detail is second to none.

IMANI truly understands how today’s families and young professionals live. Inside these bright, airy residences there is a fusion of function and beauty - with high end laminate floors, nine-foot ceilings, air conditioning, floor-to-ceiling windows, waterfall countertops and a high-end Fisher&Paykel appliance package, including a fully integrated refrigerator to match the European-inspired cabinetry.

Residents will enjoy the spacious fourth-floor amenities area, showcased by a party room complete with kitchen, a sleek lounge for neighbourhood gatherings, a fully equipped fitness centre and guest suite. Watch those sunsets BC. Is known for from the outdoors courtyard with barbecue, dining area and children’s playground.

Akimbo was designed from the inside out with the right mix of perfectly square and efficient floor plans offering home buyers incredible functionality and value - all wrapped up in what will be at completion in just under three years - the architectural landmark of Burnaby,” says Good.

Akimbo is already more than 90 per cent sold. With prices starting at just under $600k for a one bedroom and larger homes including the two-bedroom for $835K, these will surely sell out quickly. Akimbo’s award-winning presentation centre, located at 2152 Douglas Rd., Burnaby, is open by appointment Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit or call 604-359-7728. Completion is set for 2023.
