Timeline of Our Lonsdale Rentals

Hollyburn Properties has been devoted to the North Shore community for over 40 years.

1964

Marlborough Tower Built
Marlborough Tower was, at one time, the tallest building in North Vancouver at 25 stories high. Because of this, it holds pivotal influence over the landscape of Lonsdale as it is seen today.

1979

Purchased Marlborough Tower
The building is situated at the epicenter of the city in Central Lonsdale. It marks the home of city hall, the public library and Civic Plaza - a hub for local gatherings, community events and Sunday strolls.

2001

Land Exchange Donation for New Library
Hollyburn Properties and the City of North Vancouver agreed to a land exchange, whereby Hollyburn acquired the parking lot adjacent to Marlborough Tower. Later, this became the site of their first North Shore rental development, Bridgewater.

2015

Groundbreaking for Bridgewater
Bridgewater addressed an integral need for housing as the area’s first high rise rental apartment in 35 years. This development diversified rental options for residents in a time when Central Lonsdale had a vacancy rate of 0.2%, equivalent to 1 apartment for rent out of every 500.

2015

The Lonsdale Application
Realizing the need for additional rental housing, Hollyburn Properties applied to rezone the lot at 13th and Lonsdale. A focus on family with increased 2-and 3-bedroom apartments differentiates the project from other rental developments in the area.

2016

Bridgewater Completion
Bridgewater was the first development venture for Hollyburn Properties. It offers an A+ location and state-of-the-art amenities, including: a fully equipped gym, common room, rooftop terrace that boasts a 360-degree view and parking (subject to availability).

2018

Lonsdale Construction Begins
In 2017, the CNV approved Hollyburn's rezoning application for The Lonsdale and excavation began in January 2018.

2019

Commercial Leasing
Hollyburn Properties is anticipating 100% of the commercial units to be leased by mid-2019. In keeping with the resident-centric approach, local businesses that will enhance the lifestyle of the residents at The Lonsdale with ease and convenience are encouraged.

2020

The Lonsdale’s Completion
The Lonsdale offers 144 units, including 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments. Top floor amenities, including a gym, common room, and rooftop terrace help foster community and create a shared space for everyone to enjoy.

From start to finish, the experience dealing with Hollyburn has been exceptional. The move-in process was extremely easy and the property managers have been very responsive to any questions along the way. I highly recommend going with Hollyburn for your new home!

I moved to Bridgewater from West Vancouver when I decided to downsize after my husband passed away. The fact that Hollyburn has CRB certification on their buildings allows me and my neighbours to rent with confidence. I can’t thank my resident managers, Christine and Geoff, enough for all they have done to help me transition and make Hollyburn my home.

When we came out from Ontario to look at apartments, we instantly fell in love with the building, location, and building managers. We love the roof top patio, which offers stunning views, [and] being located on a quiet cul-de-sac in walking distance to Central Lonsdale is a convenience that is hard to match. We couldn’t be happier to call Hollyburn home!

I have had the privilege of being a Hollyburn resident for the past 5 years, in two of their buildings and am proud to call Bridgewater home. I love the building and neighbourhood, and Christine and Geoff are amazing resident managers who go over and above to ensure we all live in a beautiful and immaculate building.

I signed up for the waitlist at Bridgewater and spoke with Christine (the Resident Manager), so she was able to help me when [my] unit came available. I actually looked at a similar unit across the street but chose Bridgewater because it had a more efficient floorplan and nicer quality finishes.

We’ve actually never rented before; we owned a house in England, but Christine was so amazing and helpful! We only had a few days to find a place, so we had to move quickly and Christine made the process so straight forward and smooth.
