The District development, once complete, will contribute more than $1.1-billion annually to the local economy with an infusion of $1 billion dollars in development costs. The District will attract more than 500 companies and create up to 15,000 jobs attracting the world’s brightest minds to Surrey and BC’s growing talent pool.
City Centre 1
Upon the 2014 opening of the 12-storey City Centre 1 building, which is home to Lark’s head office, this first building quickly filled to its 180,000-square foot capacity and currently accommodates over 120 medical and health specialty clinics, including multiple research and science centres in addition to the Health Tech Innovation Hub, a growing number of technology startups and multinational enterprises.
City Centre 2
The 185,000 square foot, 12-storey City Centre 2 building was completed in 2018 and quickly became home to one of Surrey’s largest technology companies, Safe Software. Safe Software occupies five floors and nearly 60,000 square feet to accommodate its growing company of more than 170 employees, securing a strong presence for tech companies within the District.
An entire floor of City Centre 2 became home to Regent International Academy and a number of education and health-related institutions, including Surrey’s first Urgent Primary Care Centre.
City Centre 3
City Centre 3 is currently under construction and is a 130,000-square foot, 10-storey LEED Gold-certified building that is already over 60% sold and ready for occupancy July 2021.
The momentum of this project has reached an unanticipated pace, surpassing a critical mass with the fourth and fifth buildings’ design processes now underway.
