“The proposed density and building form are appropriate for this part of Surrey City Centre, and forms part of an emerging high-density mixed-use hub that will be complementary to the City of Surrey Civic Centre to the south,” reads a staff report from the City of Surrey.

The developer says on its website, “Providing an official entrance to City of Surrey, Whalley Station goes hand in hand with the Flamingo Towers making it one of the most iconic developments in Surrey. Continuing to build on Whalley’s historic background and diverse demographics, Whalley Station will provide plenty of retail, commercial, restaurants, outdoor music venues, amenities and services.”

Completion of Whalley Station is scheduled for 2026.
