You can say that one of the most valuable lessons that Jim Bosa’s father taught him was that development isn’t about buildings; it’s about community.
Jim knows his native North Burnaby well, which explains his love, passion, and vision for the neighbourhood he and his family have helped shape throughout the years, and his long-standing investment in the Giro di Burnaby.
Jim’s latest and biggest project is the master-planned community at the corner of Lougheed and Willingdon: SOLO District. This six-acre community will include four residential towers, office spaces, retail locations, and community spaces.
When SOLO District is complete and humming with residents, businesses, and shoppers, Jim Bosa’s Appia Development will have contributed more than $30 million in cash and amenities for the enjoyment of every Burnaby resident. This includes a $2 million, 4,500 square-foot community space that will be constructed in the third phase.
