Concord Pacific's new Met 2 highrise development on Nelson Avenue will not only offer electric vehicles for its condo owners to share but arguably the sportiest one on the market.

The move is part of its efforts to meet Burnaby city hall's guidelines encouraging developers to provide green transportation options for residents of new high-density developments.

Along with a Tesla S electric vehicle (EV), Met 2 will include a second EV and quick-charge EV charging stations as part of its amenity package.

Concord Pacific has exceeded all of city halls expectations, said  Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. "They have not only ensured that they will have EV charging stations but that those EV charging stations will be quick charge, recharging vehicles in one third the time.”

The development company has also been investing in green power projects, including ones in Ontario, Squamish and Saskatchewan.

"Each of these projects generate enough energy to power all of Concord Pacific’s Communities across Canada," said Peter Webb, its senior vice-president of development.
