New Bristol Estates in Surrey includes over 2,000 homes

The owners of Bristol Estates in Surrey are planning a major redevelopment of the low-rise rental apartment complex, with towers up 48 storeys and over 2,000 new homes.

ZGF Architects is working on the concept for the redevelopment, tentatively called “Landmark Bristol.” A rezoning application has submitted to the City of Surrey, and if approved, construction of phase one could start as early as 2023.

The existing complex of 156 rental apartments was built in 1968 and the units are at the end of their service life. The 6.27 acre property is 500 metres from the Surrey Central SkyTrain station and in an area seeing rapid redevelopment.

The proposal for Bristol Estates calls for:

  • 2,000 strata condos in five towers (48, 44, 43, 40 and 38 storeys)
  • 170 secured market rental apartments (11 storeys), with 20 per cent rented below CMHC average rates allocated for returning tenants
  • Two new streets
  • Daycare facility
  • Local serving retail space
  • Public art at the gateway(s) to the development
  • Urban forest and stormwater strategy

The Surrey Centre Official Community Plan aims to transform the neighbourhood from a suburban town centre into a walkable, high-density and transit-oriented downtown for the South of Fraser region. The density and mix of uses is meant to create a city centre that is “more animated, livable and a place that thrives economically where residents can work, play, and live in their neighbourhood.”
