It boasts a 26-floor residential tower. The Crystal Mall also sits adjacent to the Hilton Metrotown Vancouver Hotel. There are four levels of underground parking available for mall customers. For transit users, the Metrotown Skytrain Station and bus loop are close by. The Crystal Mall is very easy to get in and out of, despite its location at one of the busiest intersections in Burnaby.

The Crystal Mall was built in 2000 and is two stories tall. Its circular shape makes it easy to explore. On the first level, there is an exciting Chinese open market with lots of interesting items to discover. There is also a “Computer Lane”, which takes up an entire hallway of the Crystal Mall with electronic and computer stores.

On the second level of the mall, there is a food court specializing in mostly in East Asian cuisines.
