In size alone the City of Surrey is the third largest in the province. It’s known for its diversity of landscape, communities and people. From the refreshed urban core that is City Centre in Whalley, to the rich farm fields of Cloverdale, Surrey has become a premiere destination for home buyers in Metro Vancouver.
Surrey’s public infrastructure has been catching up to the influx of residents with a new city hall, central library, outpatient care facility and aquatic centre. Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus is building a five-storey, 15,000-square-metre facility dedicated to energy systems and environmental engineering programs. Kwantlen Polytechnic University is also opening its fifth campus at 3 Civic Plaza, a 52-storey mixed-use building. Then there is Innovation Boulevard, a partnership between health, business, higher education and local government to create new health technologies for medical devices, independent living and digital health.
All of these developments may help to explain why Surrey has become one of fastest growing communities in BC.
