Formally known as Victory Heights, this area saw initial development with the need and influx of “war time homes” – mostly bungalow style or back splits to compensate for the Heights’ hilly location. Bordering Burnaby’s Crest, at the peak of New Westminster’s elevation, you will be blown away by the expansive views from any home in the Heights, extending well beyond the Fraser River to Mount Baker, the Fraser Valley, and all the city lights of Coquitlam. The Heights is exclusively an area of detached homes, although its immediate neighbours in Burnaby, the Crest, has many stratas.
