Wesgroup Seeking to Develop Three Massive Surrey Towers, Office Building

Wesgroup is seeking to develop three large multi-family towers and a relatively small office building in Surrey’s civic centre area.

The company has filed an application to rezone a 5.1-acre parcel at 10355 King George Boulevard, near the Surrey Central SkyTrain and civic centre. If all goes according to plan, the towers will stand 55, 60 and 65 storeys, and the office building will contain 13 floors.

Known as the Civic District, the mixed-use project is slated to contain retail components, including a 43,491-square-foot grocery store that would replace an existing Safeway outlet, as well as a 24,472-sf daycare and 104,442-sf hotel.

Vancouver-based Wesgroup plans to complete the project in four phases with each building representing one phase. The multi-residential towers would be built first.

City staff have endorsed the development project and recommended that council allow a related proposed bylaw to advance to the public-notification stage.

Wesgroup is modelling the project after three of the company’s existing high-density Metro Vancouver major mixed-use developments: River District in southeast Vancouver, Brewery District in the Sapperton area of New Westminster, B.C., and Inlet District in Port Moody, B.C.

The three developments are largely built but are still expanding in accordance with multi-year plans. The River, Brewery and Inlet districts include waterfront sites and are located near SkyTrain stations and transit hubs.

The proposed Civic Centre project site is an inland location but the multi-family towers would offer sweeping views of the Fraser River.
