67-storey tower for downtown gets nod from Surrey council

City council passed third-reading approval Monday after public hearing

A proposal to develop a 67-storey tower in Surrey’s city centre got third-reading approval from council after it went to a public hearing Monday, Jan. 16 at city hall.

Aimforce Surrey Centre 1 Ltd.’s project, at 10201-10239 King George Boulevard, features a 678-foot-tall mixed-used high-rise consisting of a seven-storey commercial and office podium.

It includes 19,422 square metres of commercial and office floor space and an eight-storey residential podium and residential tower with 746 dwelling units including studios to three-bedroom apartments.

“I’m very excited about this,” Coun. Mandeep Nagra said. “This is probably going to be the tallest building, 67 storeys. So back in 2020 when COVID hit we came up with a policy to provide some incentives to the developers because things were slowing down and as we all know that construction plays a huge role in our local economy.

“I think we should look at some sort of incentives moving forward so that we can keep our jobs going,” he said, referring to construction.
