Well known Vancouver developer Anthem Properties has recently posted information on their website indicating that they are working on plans for a substaintial redevelopment of a large site in Surrey City Centre at 13645 102 Avenue. According to the project page on their website, they have revealed that they are working on a new 1,500,000 Sq.Ft. Master planned community which will consist of 7 residential towers above newly created retail and office spaces. While no plans have yet been released, the website indicates that the project is ‘coming soon’ with no timeline given.
At present, the subject site contains a Save-on-Foods, Canadian Tire, and A&W Restaurant, and is mostly covered by a large under-utilized parking lot. Under the City Centre Plan, the site is designated to be broken up by 2 new roads running east-west, as well as a new ‘urban green lane’ running north-south. One of the new roads will be an extension of 102A Avenue, which is set to replace the Surrey Central Bus Loop and be created through other projects in the area such as the SFU expansion and recently announced 50-Storey Education Centre. The other road will be an extension of 103 Avenue which is also being created through developments in the area. The Anthem project will extend both of these streets through to Whalley Blvd in the east, improving both vehicle and pedestrian connectivity in the area.
