Brightside Community Chooses Names for New Buildings

The Brightside community has voted on new names for three of Brightside’s building sites as part of our community engagement process.

All of Brightside’s residents, staff and Board, and select stakeholders had the opportunity to first provide thoughts and suggestions on possible names for the new buildings. The names were then shortlisted and put to a vote in the Brightside Community.


The results:

Timbre & Harmony         

1425 & 1451 East 12th Avenue in Grandview-Woodland

The Aster

349 East 6th Avenue in Mount Pleasant

Sunrise Village: East & West

2924 Venables Street in Hastings-Sunrise


The Hawthorn

8725 French Street in Marpole

We are grateful to all of the Brightside residents, staff, and Board members that took place in our community engagement process, and are truly excited to see these new names adorn the entryways of our new buildings once complete.
