The SFU Community Trust is developing ‘UniverCity’ on Burnaby Mountain based on a long term Master Plan with zoned, serviced, subdivided sites in partnership with private sector developers on a 99-year leasehold basis.
A Community Advisory Committee with members from SFU students, neighbouring residents, municipal planning staff and non-governmental organizations participated in creating a visions of a community with diversity of housing types that honours the landscape and serves the university.
The UniverCity will be comprised of four distinct neighbourhood areas; West Highlands, East Highlands, High Street and Slopes Neighbourhood each contributing to the full community. Common elements in the public realm and architectural character will tie all neighbourhoods together.

In collaboration with Intergulf Development, Integra Architecture is involved in the development of two parcels  (34 and 35), in the Slopes Neighbourhood. The South Slopes area is a terraced hillside community, featuring low-rise, predominantly wood-frame homes for families. The slope and terraced design takes full advantage of views from southern Vancouver Island to Mount Baker in Washington State.

Arbour development will include two mid-rise 6-storey buildings and two stacked-townhouse buildings, with 178 units.
