King George Station is a landmark mixed-use development that will further transform the rapidly evolving downtown core of Surrey – BC’s second largest city. At the connection point of up to three transit lines, the development will become a vibrant hub of pedestrian activity, supported by walkable retail and services, plentiful offices, a growing population of nearby residents, and a pubic gathering space for the local community.
Located directly adjacent to the Expo Line’s King George Skytrain station, the development will provide over 760,000 SF of LEED Gold, transit-oriented office and retail space in multiple phases, and over 1.2 million SF of residential space in the later phases.
The first phase consists of Coast Capital Savings Credit Union’s Help Headquarters with the design focused on non-traditional, open and collaborative spaces. The first phase will also include a Coast Capital aperio-style branch, a day care, ample parking, and a fitness facility for employees. The headquarters is directly adjacent to the King George Station Skytrain and there are also plans for an active pedestrian zone; a space where transit plazas, a public plaza and a Coast Capital Community plaza come together.
The second phase will be mixed-use with a multi-storey retail and entertainment component that will be potentially up to 750,000 SF in size. The third phase will comprise of an office and retail building, and phase four entails up to 800 housing units. All phases will be connected around pedestrian-friendly plazas leading to the Skytrain station.
