Surrey’s Park Blvd to feature light display synced with SkyTrain

Concord Pacific’s upcoming tower Park Boulevard in Surrey will feature an interactive light display that changes with the arrival and departure of the SkyTrain at the adjacent King George station.

The 42-storey condo tower at 9887 Whalley Blvd. is described by the developer as “Canada’s first interactive illuminated residential tower.” The horizontal light strips will move up the tower when a train arrives and move down the tower when a train exits the station.

Although the light display is touted as Canada’s first interactive illuminated tower, Marine Gateway in Vancouver already has an interactive light display called “Ebb and Flow.”

The white light display glides up and down the south side of the tower, in sync with the rise and fall of the local tide. 

For residents who are not planning to take the SkyTrain, Park Boulevard will be the first residential building in Surrey with electric vehicle charging outlets standard in 50 per cent of parking spots.

The building will have 419 units made up of one, two and three bedroom suites. Amenities include an indoor pool, bowling alley, badminton courts, sports lounge and meeting room.

The tower is the last phase of the original Infinity site that was taken over by
Concord Pacific.
