The Creation of Something Unique

With the rapid pace of residential and mixed-use real estate development today, is there still time to create something special? For Townline, the answer is: “always.” Each new undertaking poses its own unique challenges and distinct opportunities that we embrace to create a truly interesting, successful community – one that improves our city and deepens our understanding of how we can live better.

Enter Sussex, Townline’s 41-storey residential high-rise tower in the heart of Metrotown. With Sussex, we considered each aspect of our homeowners’ daily lives to create something uniquely distinguished and highly livable.

Quiet, Green… and Urban?

Sussex is located on a tree-lined street in Burnaby’s sought-after Metrotown neighbourhood. Part of what makes this vertical community special is its carefully selected site: north of Kingsway on a quiet, residential street. Sussex is just steps from the SkyTrain, Metropolis at Metrotown and all the many enticing features of this lively area, yet set back from the hustle and bustle of Kingsway.

Elevated Perspectives

The site also boasts the geographic advantage of being perfectly positioned at the summit of a natural crest. That means almost entirely unobstructed views of mountains, ocean and city. Those who have yet to experience living with a view may be pleasantly surprised by how greatly it can impact your quality of life.

Architecting a Way of Life

Few things get us as excited as beautiful architecture. With Sussex, we know you’ll share in our enthusiasm. The building is both contemporary and timeless. Each detail is elegantly designed to make daily life feel more luxurious – from the rectangular floorplate angled to maximize views, to the spacious private balconies perfectly positioned for enjoying those views with friends and family while dining or relaxing outdoors.

The Pleasures of Social Space

At Townline, we carefully design living spaces that create pleasurable and social living experiences for each of our homeowners. Sussex residents will enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness and yoga studio and a dramatic, Feng Shui inspired, double-height lobby. But we wanted to go well beyond the typical amenity offering to make this a truly unique vertical community where social gathering spaces invite connectivity and improve the experience of each person who lives here.

With this aim, we included more than 6,000 square feet of elite amenities designed to enhance our homeowners’ lifestyles. Indoor and outdoor dining spaces, where you can connect with friends and family. A hotel-inspired guest suite for your visitors. Double-sided fireplaces, BBQs, and plenty of comfortable seating on the terrace. There is even an elevated modern bowling lounge: two full-sized lanes with an engaging social lounge. Choosing your social activities at Sussex can be a tough split!

Homes Where Life Happens

While the experience at Sussex is about so much more than personal space, each home is undoubtedly spectacular. The interior design is stunning; the floorplans are well thought-out; the outdoor spaces are large and inviting. We paid special attention to the little details that make everyday life comfortable. People tend to congregate in kitchens, so we designed large, functional kitchen islands with additional storage and extra seating. In smaller homes, these islands double as dining tables to maximize living space. Every bathroom is subject to moisture, so we curated oversized tiles that run to the ceiling, protecting the wall surfaces while adding a luxury hotel feel.

Whether you’re in a 489 square foot junior one-bedroom or a 1,603 square foot penthouse, your home should be as beautiful to look at as it is impeccably designed to suit your lifestyle requirements.

Set Yourself Apart

At Sussex, we offer the location, the experience, and the level of sophistication that set us apart. The demand for homes at Sussex was unprecedented, so it came as no surprise that the homes virtually sold out as quickly as they did.
