Burrard Flats on the way up


You read it here first – the Burrard Flats are going through some big changes and people are going to line up to live there. Kits’ newest residential development, First on First, opened its showroom doors today and it was buzzing. The 45-unit condo, six-floor building on the southwest corner of Burrard and First is considered a "boutique" project because of its small size but spacious interiors. While this might be the 1st development on First Avenue, the Burrard Flats have welcomed Dwellings on 3rd and will be home to one more luxury car dealership when Maserati breaks ground on Burrard in the next couple months.

With easy foot access to Granville Island, Kitsilano beach, and Downtown Vancouver, it’s only a matter of time before more re-development application signs pop up and Molsons moves their Goliath Brewing Facility out to Surrey. This is all reminiscent of when Carling O’Keefe cashed out and Arbutus Walk was born.

    Is it a fact that Molsons will eventually move to Surrey (if so, when?) or is this just wishful thinking on someone’s part?

    They won’t move anytime soon. As per Rob’s post, they just invested $32 million in the current location.
