In terms of pricing, the Burnaby and Vancouver West sub-markets saw an increase in their average price per square foot (PPSF) during the first quarter of 2020. At $876 in 2019, Burnaby’s PPSF increased 20% in 2020 (thanks solely to Highline in Metrotown) while Vancouver West’s PPSF rose by 3% (from $1,688 to $1,745).
