It’s all gone. Sometime Wednesday morning, a demolition crew tore down the last remaining piece of the old Cloverdale Mall, a small concrete room.
Now all that’s left are several giant debris piles of lumber, brick, metal and concrete, organized into separate piles for recycling or proper disposal.
Demolition began Feb. 8 and was expected to take several weeks.
The mall – built in 1973 and located on city of Surrey property – is being torn down to make way for a new development called Cloverdale West Village, a mix of commercial and residential units.
Construction on the project’s first phase is expected to get underway later this year.
Phase one will consist of a single wood-frame, five-storey building with 22,000 square feet of commercial space, an underground parking lot and 100 residential units on the southwest portion of the site.
The first phase will include a new home for the Cloverdale Legion that’s about the same size as the current branch at 10,000 square feet.
