Century Group’s "3 Civic Plaza" project to transform Surrey skyline
A planned $150-million development project is set to transform the Surrey skyline.
Century Group plans to build a complex that includes a 52-storey residential tower with 353 suites, a 144-room hotel, and five floors of office space.
At more than 160 metres in height, Century Group says the residential component will be one of the tallest towers in the region once constructed.
The “3 Civic Plaza” development is to be located in the heart of the city’s downtown area, close to Surrey Central SkyTrain, the library, the SFU campus, and the new City Hall.
Century Group spokesperson David Laulainen described it as a centrally located development that will support car-free living.
“You cannot build isolated islands where you need to get in your car for everything you need to get anymore,” Laulainen told the Straight by phone. “Those days are done.”
A development permit is still required for the project to move forward and the matter is expected to come before city council in April, Laulainen said.
The developer expects construction to start this summer and finish by early 2016.
