The North Road BIA is home to the largest Korean shopping district in the Lower Mainland! An authentic Korean area abundant with shops; businesses and award-winning restaurants await you, just south of Lougheed Highway along North Road. This is a major shopping destination for vast numbers of people on a daily basis. It is the home of the North Road Centre mall and is the place for Korean professional services like Doctors, Dentists, Accountants, Immigration consultants and Media. With a wealth of enticing bakeries, house wares, novelty items and clothing shops, you can do your daily shopping here while you experience something totally out of the ordinary – like Kim chi and Bibimbap! Each of the restaurants put their own spin on these delicious culinary treats and it could take you many visits before you can nail down your favourite spot to eat. If you don’t have time to sit and be served, you can stop by Hanna’s charming pancake cart outside the plaza and take a sizzling hot, sweet bean cake to go. The well-known Han Nam Market awaits with all the makings for your own delicious treats if you are confident enough to try creating your own signature dish.
We are easily accessed by Skytrain – the Lougheed Skytrain station is just north of Lougheed Highway and around the corner.
The North Road corridor is the oldest road in the Lower Mainland and is part of a well-established community which offers the daily convenience of first class grocery and drug stores, a signature liquor store and international banking facilities. The community enjoys neighbourhood public schools within walking distance, a Recreation Complex and Library offering comprehensive community programs for all ages, state of the art gyms and spas and walking trails. Our area is heralded as a future pedestrian oriented village by the City of Burnaby and we look forward to the anticipated 2016 completion of the Evergreen Line, which will bring people increased travelling convenience. The burgeoning Lougheed area is poised to undergo major redevelopment by Shape Properties in the years to come. We are excited about the future of the area and with the continued support of the City of Burnaby and our valuable neighbourhood partners, will continue to blossom into a major hub.
