It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s 3 Civic Plaza!

We don’t need to tell you that Surrey is growing. If you’ve been in the city centre recently you’ll have noticed that big things are happening here. Like, BIG. Literally.

Construction for Surrey’s 3 Civic Plaza has been under way for only six months, and already it’s being touted as the next downtown hub. So, what’s at 3 Civic Plaza? And why is everyone talking about it?

It’s not just the tallest tower south of the Fraser River. It’s being built by ITC Construction Group, an early leader in sustainable highrise construction. And it’s set to be the next big thing to put Surrey on the map. It’s fifty-two stories of innovation – a mecca of luxury, learning and living.

The Luxury

Welcome to Surrey’s first new premium world-class boutique hotel. Its official name? ‘Civic Hotel at 3 Civic Plaza, Autograph Collection’ by Marriott.  When completed, this elegant establishment will feature twenty-one stories of swank, including 144 rooms, a convention space, fitness centre, lobby-based cafe, fine dining restaurant, and a rooftop pool.

The Learning

Three floors of the epic structure will be occupied by Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s new professional development campus. We can’t think of a more inspiring location to feed the mind!

The Living

The structure will also feature the only residential tower on Surrey Civic Plaza – 349 condo apartments with world-class amenities and unobstructed views of Metro Vancouver and beyond. The residences will exemplify modern, downtown living at its finest. Each apartment will have innovative sustainable design features, like in-slab radiant heating, displacement ventilation systems and sophisticated climate control systems. Residents will also have access to premium residential concierge services and luxurious amenities including a lap pool with sundeck, a yoga studio, a rooftop garden, meeting rooms and a co-working space.

Location, Location, Location

Because that’s what it’s all about, right? Here’s just an example of what’s less than a stone’s throw from 3 Civic Plaza: City Centre Library, City Hall, Surrey Central Skytrain Station, SFU Surrey campus, Holland Park, Central City Shopping Centre and Modo Car Co-op… although who needs a car when everything you’ll ever need is RIGHT HERE?

The plaza is vast, innovative and set to bring a community together. With the ability to host up to 5,000 people for celebrations, markets and live concerts, we predict that 3 Civic Plaza will indeed become the heart of Surrey’s new, bustling urban village.

Are you ready to move in after reading this? Or dying to book just a night or two in the hotel?

Well, you’ll have to wait til late 2016.
