Anthem Brings An Exciting New Tower to Metrotown

New Home Condo Guide

Right now, Metrotown is being reimagined as Burnaby’s new downtown, with an energy and urban core that will soon rival downtown Vancouver. Planning is underway for the redevelopment of Metrotown Mall, the formation of five acres of parks and plazas, a new convention centre, and much more, creating one of the most diverse and vital economic and residential hubs in British Columbia.

With the imminent completion of their ambitious Station Square master-planned community (in partnership with Beedie), Anthem is continuing their investment in Metrotown with The Standard; a new vision of luxury and convenience that will be the first in a series of three new Anthem communities coming to this vibrant and growing urban neighbourhood.

Station Square, Anthem’s distinctive contribution to Metrotown’s evolution, began with five residential towers. Encompassing retail, office, and residential spaces, the community is considered one of North America’s most successful developments to date. From Price Smart Foods to WeWork and Best Buy, Station Square is made even more lively by the completion of Restaurant Row along Silver Drive – a pedestrian friendly street lined with restaurants and cafes, including Cactus Club and internationally acclaimed Tendon Kohaku from Tokyo. Representing the best attributes of Station Square, The Standard is the next evolution of Anthem’s commitment to building great space and progressive new communities

The future of Metrotown will include a performing arts centre, art gallery, and 1.7 million square feet of new office, civic and education space. In addition, Metrotown’s new shopping district will feature a traditional high street, with pedestrian- friendly shopping, eateries, walkways and bicycle paths.

At 43 storeys, The Standard will be an elegant and significant early addition to the residential district of this burgeoning neighbourhood. Located central to the Skytrain, Central Park and Metropolis at Metrotown, a home at The Standard will put you in the centre of it all, surrounded by clean, contemporary design that complements your personal style. The Standard will include 424 homes, including at-grade townhomes, designed by renowned architectural firm GBL Architects, with interiors by CHIL Interior Design. Clean, timeless, yet contemporary architecture with elegant white linear banding will create a beacon for the everchanging skyline
of Metrotown, and will include a public art display created by internationally acclaimed Korean artist, Kim Sooja, at the entrance of a concierge-handled lobby.

Inside, The Standard showcases modern sophistication with neutral palettes to make your own personal touches stand out. Chef-inspired kitchens feature engineered quartz countertops, state-of-the-art integrated European appliances, and dramatic marble-look tile. Residents will enjoy over 22,000 square feet of carefully-curated indoor and outdoor amenities that will be top of class.

Anthem’s dedication to Burnaby has spanned over 20 years and includes almost 160,000 square feet of commercial real estate and over 3,900 homes that are complete, under construction or in development. Register for updates and priority access at TheStandardbyAnthem.com.
