A new feature at a Burnaby shopping mall has become an Instagram sensation.

The Amazing Brentwood recently opened up its skybridge to the public, connecting the older side of the mall and the new Tables food court with the brand-spanking new phase that’s loaded with shops, restaurants and services.

The skybridge’s glass comes in a rainbow of colours and the whole place is lit up like a Pride parade. When the sun shines through the windows from the east, the colours are even more vibrant.

And it hasn’t gone unnoticed as people are flocking to the spot to take selfies and post to Instagram when it’s lit up with all of the colours.

The Amazing Brentwood has three residential towers built, but will eventually have 13 total on the 28-acre property at Lougheed and Willingdon. As part of phase one, 1.45 million square feet of retail space has been built.

On the north side of the skybridge is Tables, a swanky 780-seat food court that blows away most mall food courts and includes an outdoor patio. The north side also includes the older wing of the mall that includes London Drugs. Below are such new businesses as Nike and Adidas

The south side is all completely new construction. There are fun options such as Cineplex’s new five-screen VIP movie theatre and its Rec Room entertainment complex that features everything from video games to pool tables to virtual reality.

There are lifestyle features like a fitness facility, brow bar and barbershop.

Then if you go outside, you’ll find the huge outdoor plaza that includes shops such as the new Sephora that just opened, a big Starbucks, plus such restaurants as La Taqueria and Gram pancakes. It will be a hub of activity and will host a variety of live entertainment shows utilizing its special rollout stage. 

And then there’s the shopping at H&M, H&M Home, Sporting Life, Suit Supply, L.L. Bean, Urban Outfitters and more.

So, there’s still much more to be completed, but now that COVID-19 vaccinations have ramped up and the province has set out a restart plan, progress on opening new stores is ramping up quickly.
