PriceWaterhouseCoopers Cashes In On City Centre
Price WaterhouseCoopers is marking its hundred years of excellence serving Canada’s accounting and financial needs with a major move to Surrey’s Central City Tower in summer, 2011. For the first time, the downtown Vancouver and Guildford offices of this worldwide business financials giant will be brought together on the 14th floor. By summer 2012, their full complement of 150 industry specialists will be part of a rapidly growing population of professionals and services enjoying Central City Tower’s billion-dollar view.
“This is a highly desirable area and building, and a magnet for other businesses in the future. We wanted to be part of it as early as possible,” says Rod Johnston, corporate finance specialist and Managing Partner of Price Waterhouse’s Guildford location. “ We specifically focused on the Central City Tower as the best one to be in with its proximity to SFU, Skytrain, City Hall, and its future as the financial hub of the Lower Mainland. This is a very strategic move for us.
“The Central City Tower is the best office tower in all of BC in terms of quality and the view is better than anything in downtown Vancouver or anywhere in the Lower Mainland.”
