Known as one of the “best kept secrets in the Lower Mainland,” the vibrant community and history of Burnaby Heights is part of what makes North Burnaby real estate so desirable.


Not only does this neighbourhood—known to locals as simply “the Heights”—have some of the best vista views around, but its cultural history is just as impressive as its natural surroundings. While Burnaby and the entire West Coast is relatively new, the Heights is one of the oldest communities in Greater Vancouver. It’s shopping district along Hastings Street was established more than 100 years ago!


Back in the days when a trolley ran from Vancouver to Burnaby Heights, the influx of shoppers and new residents made the area a very desirable place to set up shop and also to live—and it continues to be so. The area remains home to the thriving and tight-knit community of businesses and people that was established so long ago.


We are lucky to also still enjoy the heritage look and feel of North Burnaby real estate today. You can see this in the original early twentieth-century buildings that dot the neighbourhood, but also in the new retro-inspired businesses that make the Heights and its “small town charm” so unique within the Lower Mainland.


From children’s arts spaces and patisseries to clock repairers and yoga studios, the more than 350 businesses of Burnaby Heights mean that you basically never have to leave the neighbourhood if you don’t want to—and why would you?
