Further to news in January on the submission of a development application for WestStone Group’s next tower in West Village, more details have now surfaced showing changes to the original plan.
As per a recently released rendering of the project by Adessa Visuals, and application details from the City of Surrey, the project is now proposed as a 46-storey tower above a 14-storey podium. The significant massing of the project is a departure from early plans for the site, which showed a tower above a commercial/retail podium similar to the under construction Evolve next door. Early plans also showed a small plaza/park space on the southern portion of the site, which has now been replaced by the 14-storey podium, covering the entire site.
The scale of the project, designed by Vancouver-based Chris Dikeakos Architects is set to further transform the growing West Village neighbourhood to the west of Surrey Central Station. This latest tower is Phase 5 of an eventual 8 Phase project.
