February 2021 Update

The February Issue of the City Centre Update is now available at SurreyCityCentre.ca. This month’s newsletter includes a round-up of new Development Applications, Council Approvals, and Construction activity during the first month of 2021.

New Development Applications

One new development application was submitted within City Centre during January 2021, bringing the total number of major applications under initial review to 32. This represents approximately 35 High-Rises (>6-Storeys) and 21 Low-Rises (4-6 Storeys).

21 – 0006 | City Parkway & Central Ave

This site located on the corner of City Parkway & Central Ave across from Surrey Central Station saw a Rezoning, Subdivision, and Development Permit application submitted in January 2021. The application is proposing to redevelop the site into a new mixed-use high-rise tower containing 435 residential units above a 167,594 SF office podium. The site is currently occupied by the single storey ‘Andes Plaza’ commercial building, and a single storey restaurant building.

Council Approvals

One major project received approval from Council during January 2021, joining 32 other pre-existing approved projects. As of February 2021, there are now 33 approved projects in City Centre, representing 41 High-Rises (>6-Storeys), and 22 Low-Rises (4-6 Storeys).

20 – 0018 | Flamingo Block (Phase 1)

Phase 1 of the Flamingo Block by Tien Sher Group received 3rd Reading (Conditional Approval) on January 11, 2021. Located at Whalley Blvd & 107A St, the project is to consist of a 35-Storey residential tower and 6-Storey office building with retail at grade.

Phase 1 had previously received approval in February 2019 for a 35-Storey residential tower + residential low-rise instead of office. Phases 2-3 consisting of 37 & 46-Storey residential towers with retail at grade are to follow under separate development applications.


No new projects began construction during January 2021, however one project finished construction (Central City Parkade), and one project began demolition, after having been halted in Fall 2020 (La Voda – 6-Storey Residential).

As of February 2021, there are 16 projects under construction in City Centre, representing 15 high-rises (>6 Storeys) and 6 low-rises (4-6-storeys).
