Commercial plaza planned for 24 Avenue and 160 Street

Development will be adjacent to Real Canadian Superstore at busy South Surrey corner

The City of Surrey has granted preliminary approvals for a new commercial retail plaza and parking lot for the north portion of the future Real Canadian Superstore site in Grandview Heights.

The development, proposed by applicant Choice Properties Limited Partnership and managed by PC Urban Properties, includes six one-storey commercial buildings and one two-storey building providing retail on the ground floor and offices on the second.

Plans are to break ground in early 2016, pending final city approval, with retail tenants opening in phases from late 2016 until mid 2017.

The buildings, to be connected by walkways and two large plazas, would include a drugstore chain location and a BCAA office with an attached auto service facility.

The proposed plaza is adjacent to the approved Real Canadian Superstore and gas bar, currently under construction in the south portion of the development site, south of 24 Avenue between 160 Street and 161A Street.

Third reading was given Sept. 28 to the necessary zoning amendment, and development permit, and a development variance permit which would allow 918 parking stalls instead of the 882 permitted under existing zoning, plus the auto service use, some buffer setback variances and an increase in permitted signage to allow more logo signs on the buildings.

Surrey City Clerk Jane Sullivan said no date has yet been set for final adoption, as this rests on the applicant fulfilling conditions which include BC Hydro approval for two buildings close to a right-of-way, approval of landscaping and registration of a restrictive covenant to meet city public art needs.
