Anthem Properties has acquired another site in the heart of Surrey’s city centre.
The developer has acquired 10232 Whalley Boulevard, a a 4.4-acre site directly across the street from Georgetown, Anthem’s 10-acre, master-planned community including seven residential towers and 120,000 sq ft. of restaurants, offices and retail space.
Anthem plans to submit a rezoning proposal for a future master planned residential community to the city, in line with Surrey’s Official Community Plan and area planning policies. The site is currently home to a Toys ‘R’ Us and Dollarama.
Surrey City Centre is emerging as Metro Vancouver’s new downtown south of the Fraser River and Surrey is expected to surpass Vancouver in population in the next 15 to 20 years.
The neighbourhood is being built as a highly-walkable community with green spaces and open plazas, with residential, civic, university, office and retail services. It has also been designated by city planners as the future commercial, cultural and social hub of Surrey.
