Interesting Urbanism | Series 2 | UniverCity
UniverCity... with a C... is a mountain top neighbourhood in the City of Burnaby. It's the first place I lived when I came to Canada, and after some time in Coquitlam and North Vancouver, we're back on the mountain. Initial reasons for moving here were that it was in the City I worked, and meant no bridges to cross on the commute, it also provides access to nature and mountain bike trails on my doorstep. In the early days of living here there wasn't much in the way of amenities, we had to go down the mountain for most things. Today it is a much more complete community with many amenities, is home to over 5,000 residents and still growing. This second series on interesting urbanism provides a snapshot of life on the mountain and the amenities that both support the community and are supported by the community.
