Concord Pacific Comes to City Centre
Canada’s largest developer joins the future-forward team of community builders in Surrey’s downtown core with Park Place, its latest master-planned community. With the first two of six towers slated for completion in late June 2011, Concord Pacific will play a leading role in creating livable and sustainable urban ‘villages’ in Surrey. This strongly aligns with the City’s and community’s vision of a Live-Work-Play environment.
“In the next 20 years, more than a million people will come to the Lower Mainland and 70% will be going south of the Fraser,” says Grant Murray, VP of Sales for Concord Pacific Developments Inc. “We look at all areas that have great opportunity where we can build a whole community and City Centre is an ideal location with a clear vision for a city core, incredible amenities, spectacular views, and easy access to major arterial routes and Skytrain.
“We’re defining a different kind of lifestyle; an urban environment with highrises, parks, entertainment, shopping, performing arts, concentrated in a small area which gives vibrancy to the city core.”
“When you work with a city with a Master Plan you get to be very purposeful; a very unique situation,” says Peter Udzenija, Manager of Project Marketing, and
Project Manager for Park Place. “The 6,000 professional people coming into the Surrey city core through the RCMP, Fraser Health, and major businesses, will experience a whole new diverse urban community. We’ve been blown away by what’s going on here.”
The City’s and senior governments’ $5billion dollar investment in Surrey’s infrastructure in the last few years, including SFU, City Hall, Holland Park, hospital expansions, Central City Tower, roads upgrade, main library, rec centre, festivals, and civic plaza, has set the stage for a planned city core unique in the world.
Concord Pacific is committed to building 2300 suites in six City Centre towers. The three-quarters-sold two current towers will reach 36 stories with 700 suites at an affordable range of prices and sizes and offer amenities like concierge, fitness, theatres, and bowling alley.
