Brentwood developer submits first three rezoning applications

Shape Properties Corp. has started the rezoning process for Phase 1 of its redevelopment of the 28-acre Brentwood Town Centre property.

On Monday, council gave approval for staff to work with the developer on more detailed plans that could be presented at the public hearing stage.

Phase 1 would be located on the northeast corner of Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue, the space closest to Brentwood SkyTrain station, and consist of three rezoning applications.

Comprising about eight acres, that portion of the site is being proposed for a public plaza, commercial space, a high street connection between Halifax Street and Alpha Avenue, and underground parking. A signature building "cantilevered over the plaza area to punctuate the plaza's importance as the focal point of the development site" is also included in the first of the three applications.

The second and third applications are for two high rise residential towers between 45 and 70 storeys tall, one at Halifax Street and Willingdon, and the other at the southeast corner of the site, at Lougheed and Alpha.
