King George Hub redefines what it means to live in Surrey. Unlike its neighbours, it was not designed to be part of the community – it was envisioned to be the heart of the community. A world of shopping, transit options, workspaces, services and everyday conveniences that come together to create an incredibly liveable, walkable, sustainable, urban lifestyle for its residents, and a captivating destination for everyone around it.
Almost 20 years ago, the City of Surrey’s vision to create a new downtown was realized when PCI created the catalyst for that change with the iconic Coast Capital Savings headquarters. Since then, this architectural landmark in King George Hub has symbolized Surrey’s transformation and become the most desirable location in the city to live, work and play.
In the vision for King George Hub, PCI saw the future of Surrey City Centre. Born out of an experience that has seen them transform similar transit intersections like Marine Gateway and the Crossroads on Cambie into landmark destinations, they embarked on a journey that would transform King George Hub into the most complete transit-oriented community in the city.
With the addition of the Surrey-Langley SkyTrain extension, King George Hub will be one of the most connected communities in the Lower Mainland. The Expo Line SkyTrain stations give you direct access to Downtown Vancouver in 40 minutes and the Rapid Bus line connects you to Guildford Town Centre and Newton Town Centre. Combined with existing transit routes, bike trails and walkways, King George Hub’s transit options give you the freedom to get anywhere effortlessly.
The fastest-growing, and soon to be the biggest city in BC, 1,000 new residents each month, a long-range plan for a city-wide rapid transit grid, an emerging educational, healthcare, and tech hub, and consistently ranked as one of the most affordable places to live – however you look at it, Surrey City Centre is the future of BC.
Combined with what is already a thriving community consisting of 102 elementary schools, 27 secondary schools, renowned post-secondary institutions, sports, recreation and entertainment facilities, Surrey gives you a richly rewarding way of life in every sense.
What began with a new city hall and the Civic Plaza a decade ago has been eclipsed by a cosmopolitan downtown centre with rapid transit, services, amenities, parks, and more – all in a vibrant, walkable, cosmopolitan community.
