A new 6-storey condo project first reported on back in February 2017, is gearing up to begin construction in the coming months. Called ‘Fraser Landmark’, the project will bring 121 ‘luxury’ condominiums and townhomes to the corner of Fraser Hwy and 140 St, directly across from Green Timbers Park at the south-east edge of City Centre.
Registration for the project is now open to potential buyers, with sales expected to launch on May 26, and construction to begin as early as August. The building, designed by DF Architecture, will help to create an urban streetscape through its sidewalk-oriented townhomes, and 6-storey height, replacing a vacant treed lot that exists today. The building will also be just steps from a future LRT station to be located at the same intersection, along the future Surrey-Langley LRT line.
Completion of the project is expected by December 2019.
Work is set to begin this month on a major, long overdue upgrade to 100 Avenue. On February 6, Surrey City Council awarded a contract in the amount of $8.8 million to Eurovia British Columbia Inc. for widening and improvements to a stretch of 100 Avenue between 140th Street and 148th Street connecting Surrey City Centre to Guildford. As part of the project, 100 Avenue will be upgraded from a single lane in each direction to a proper 4-lane, median-separated, arterial road standard with improved street lighting, sidewalks, and grade-separated bike lanes. In addition, a new pedestrian path will also be added through Green Timbers Park on the south side of 100 Avenue, along with new signalized intersections at 144th Street, and at the entrance to an expanded Green Timbers parking lot. 100A Avenue between 141 Street and 143 Street will also be upgraded as part of the project, improving access to Lena Shaw Elementary School.
Prior to the awarding of the project, a public consultation meeting was held to present plans and receive public feedback. Through the process, a custom road cross-section was created for 100 Avenue which focused on minimizing the impacts on trees, specifically those adjacent to Green Timbers Park. Sustainable design features such as rain gardens, low-UV street lighting, low acoustic pavement design, and wildlife crossings were also incorporated as a result of feedback. When completed in Spring 2018, the 100 Avenue upgrade will offer a better alternative to 104th Avenue, relieve traffic congestion, and improve the connection between Surrey City Centre and Guildford.
A proposed new 6-storey residential development at the corner of Fraser Hwy and 140th St is heading to Council on Monday for 1st & 2nd reading. The 121-unit building, designed by Richmond-based DF Architecture features condos above a 2-storey townhouse base with private staircase/patio entrances fronting directly onto 140th St and Fraser Hwy to create an urban, pedestrian-oriented streetscape.
Situated in the south-east corner of City Centre within the West Green Timbers neighbourhood, the proposed building is consistent with the City Centre Plan for this area, which is primarily designated for 4-6-storey multiple residential buildings. The future Fraser Hwy LRT line connecting Surrey City Centre to Langley will eventually provide rapid transit access directly outside the building with a future station to be located on the same corner of 140th & Fraser Hwy. Green Timbers Park is located directly to the east of the site.
