Surrey tower hits new heights 0
In the race to outdo each other when it comes to amenities, condo developments are constantly trying to top themselves with everything from the use of electric cars to bigger fitness clubs.
It will be hard to top 3 Civic Plaza — and not just because at 52 storeys and 538 feet it will be the tallest building in Surrey and one of the five tallest in the Lower Mainland.
The project is a mixed-use tower with a Marriott hotel in the lower half and residential suites on the upper floors. Its very location is in the blossoming new downtown area called Surrey City Centre, which offers next-door access to amenities ranging from the practical to the artistic — such as a 77,000-square-foot library, the new city hall and a future performing arts centre.
In the middle of these buildings is the outdoor Civic Plaza square, which can host up to 5,000 people for community events. And just across the street are Holland Park, the Central City Shopping Centre, a Simon Fraser University campus and a SkyTrain station.
Inside 3 Civic Plaza, residents have access to concierge services, a cafe, a restaurant, the hotel’s array of retail shops, a fitness centre, a swimming pool with sundeck, and a garden terrace. And if you don’t want to take the SkyTrain, there will also be secure bike storage and access to vehicles from a car-share service.
One-bedroom suites start in the mid-$200,000s and two-bedroom units start in the upper-$300,000s. Design touches include feature windows shaped like teardrops and guitar picks, vertical-patterned mosaic glass backsplash, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and wall outlets with built-in USB plugs.
The sales centre is located at 10277 King George Blvd., and is open Monday to Thursday from 1 to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., and is closed Fridays. For more information, visit 3civicplaza.ca.
