Glenlyon Business Park is a result of design ahead of its time. Acquired in 1995 and spanning 56-hectares (140-acre), Glenlyon Business Park in South Burnaby is western Canada’s premier suburban office park that offers a beautiful and natural landscape combined with modern office spaces, as well as industrial and laboratory facilities. 

With more than 185,000 square meters (2 million square feet) of state-of-the-art office, industrial and laboratory spaces, Glenlyon Business Park’s development incorporated leading sustainability designs and best practices in its construction. Along with an extensive trail for pedestrians and cyclists, open green spaces, an off-leash dog park and playground, the property also features enhanced creekways, storm water retention ponds, curvilinear sidewalks, large green setbacks and a path system surrounded by parkland for everyone in the local community to enjoy. 

Complete with an excellent location that enables convenient transportation links to Metro Vancouver communities, Glenlyon Business Park has won several awards:
