Anton’s Pasta Bar Locals joke that it’s not hard to find this beloved Burnaby spot: just look for the long lineups outside. Make sure to bring an appetite, too: while it’s known for the quality of its pastas and sauces—more than 70 red, white, clear and seafood-based combinations—it’s famous for serving serious you-won’t-be-able-tofinish quantities.
The City of Burnaby is putting most of its development eggs into four very large baskets—Brentwood, Lougheed Town Centre, Edmonds and Metrotown—with all of them doing double time as major transit hubs. Plans include solidifying Metrotown as Burnaby’s town centre, with a dense mix of business and residential spaces, transportation options and amenities. Surrounded by glassy condo towers, Brentwood will host Vancouver’s latest megamall, and thousands of market-priced condos and rentals will continue to pop up in the Lougheed Town Centre area— where towers will reach up to 65 storeys.
