The last of three towers envisioned for University District near SkyTrain’s Surrey Central Station will cap off one of the largest multi-tower redevelopments to date within the emerging downtown Surrey area.

Named after its close proximity to Simon Fraser University’s growing Surrey campus, as well as new education institutions such as the 50,000-sq-ft Kwantlen Polytechnic University satellite campus and the future GEC Education Mega Centre, BlueSky Properties’ University District is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of University Drive and 104 Avenue.

“We believe in the vision of Surrey and we’re excited to make Surrey a home for our company for years to come,” said Dale Bosa, CEO of BlueSky Properties. “This is the final of three towers we are launching in this area. And we have another five towers in the pipeline.”

“We feel really good about this area. It’s close to Civic Plaza, City Hall and present and future amenities and we know that this location was one of the reasons why our first towers sold so well.”

Altogether, the entire University District complex has a combined total of 1,064 homes. This includes 311 units within the 36-storey Alumni Tower completed in 2017, and 322 homes within the 28-storey University District North tower.

Both the South and North towers will reach completion in 2023.

The towers were designed by the Vancouver office of Portland-based ZGF Architects.
