Marriott International to run City Centre hotel

Tower is part of a trilogy of projects in North Surrey known as 3 Civic Plaza.

Surrey’s City Centre will be home to a high-end Marriott hotel as part of a trilogy of projects in North Surrey known as 3 Civic Plaza.

The Century Group announced Tuesday that the “long-awaited” hotel partner for its building in City Centre will be Marriott International, which will operate the hotel as part of its “Autograph” series of hotels.

“We worked hard to find the right hotel partner for Civic Hotel and Autograph Collection is a natural fit,” said Sean Hodgins, president of Century Group. “It allows us to create a boutique and independent feel for the hotel, while at the same time sharing in the benefits of Marriott’s global sales and marketing channels.”

The hotel is part of a mixed-used tower that includes hotel rooms, office space and strata units.

The bottom floor will feature the restaurant for the Civic Hotel, while the 13 floors above will have 144 suites for hotel guests. The next 34 storeys will be 330 residential units. The development will also include office space.

The $125-million project is being built at the Surrey Civic Plaza, near 103 Avenue and University Drive, the location of the new City Centre Library, city hall and future mixed-use performing arts centre building.

Construction of 3 Civic Plaza began earlier this year, and the completion date is expected by the fall of 2016.

It is anticipated that Civic Hotel will cater primarily to the corporate and leisure markets. With 37,000 to 40,000 guests expected per year, more than $3.6 million in revenue is estimated to be injected into local businesses and services each year based on the average international visitor to Canada spending $99.60 per day in 2011, according to the Canadian Tourism Commission.

“Fifty-five years of doing business, this is the most exciting project I’ve ever done,” said Hodgins at the construction announcement last year.

Century Group is partnering with Surrey City Development Corporation (SCDC) on the project, along with Patrick Cotter Architects, which designed the building.
