Located at 6699 Dunblane Ave in central Burnaby, close to Metrotown Town Centre, Kingsway, and the Royal Oak SkyTrain station, Polaris will place its residents within easy walking distance to several local amenities and services. Convenient thus for commuters and shoppers, Polaris will offer a nice blend of urban and suburban living.

With prices ranging from $760,000-$1,730,000, Polaris will capture the mid to high range of the condo market, especially when prices are adjusted for the suburbs. Units will vary in size from 609-1,568 square feet.
