SFU City Centre campus has become Surrey’s calling card

Civic / August 30, 2016

The CEO of the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association, Elizabeth Model, has had a front row seat to the growth of the city’s core. In a 2013 interview with Business in Vancouver, she spoke about Surrey’s potential and its continuing emergence. Now she has what could be described as a fortunate problem when she looks out her office window on King George Boulevard.

“We used to be able to see everything, but now with all the office buildings going up it’s changed everything,” Model said. “From my office I can see 3 Civic Plaza going up, Central City and how everything is getting blocked now – my view is getting blocked by all these high rises going up.”

Along with SFU’s Central City campus there’s a new library, city hall and the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre. Work is nearing completion on 3 Civic Plaza, a tower with 353 condominium units and 144 hotel rooms, which will further expand the skyline as the city’s tallest building right beside the SkyTrain station.
