By Michelle Hopkins Oct 7, 2021

Burnaby’s Brentwood is a sought-after neighbourhood with great outdoor cafes, fabulous shopping, parks and trails, recreational amenities, and a historic business district, all within walking distance. It is here that Beedie Living’s Slate will rise 45-storeys between Holdom and Brentwood Skytrain stations. 

Conceived by powerhouse architects, DYS Architecture and Rafii Architects, Slate is set to become an eye-catching landmark, dramatically punctuated by two-storey white frames and culminating in a stepped summit.

Slate is a selection of 341 one-two and three-bedroom residences, including six stand-alone concrete townhomes, ranging from 449 to 1,800 square feet of intelligently designed spaces.
