Akimbo is located in Burnaby's West Central Valley, which has experienced tremendous growth in the last decade. Recently completed projects include the Dawson, the Fulton House, Solo District - Stratus, and Solo District - Altus. Located within a 10-minute walk of the Gilmore and Brentwood Town Centre SkyTrain stations, as well as within a short drive of Highway 1 and the Lougheed Highway, residents of this development will be able to easily travel downtown, to the Tri-Cities, and beyond.
