Last July Century Group announced the ambitious 3 Civic Plaza project which is now under construction in Surrey’s City Centre, check out all the details here http://wp.me/p2HHqR-7p . The project includes Civic Hotel, a modern, upscale hotel which is the first of its kind in Surrey since the Guildford Sheraton was built over 20 years ago. Here’s a breakdown of what this state of the art hotel will bring to Surrey.
• Part of Surrey’s first mixed-use hotel and residential project, 3 Civic Plaza.
• A premium world class hotel backed by a global reservation system.
• Located on the Civic Plaza in Surrey City Centre on City Parkway at the crossroads of 104th Avenue, and adjacent to the Surrey Central SkyTrain station.
• Surrey’s first new high-rise hotel in two decades.
• Boasts 144 rooms, large meeting space to accommodate more than 300 people, street-level licensed restaurant and lounge, market café, indoor lap pool and hot tub, and fitness room with adjoining change rooms that include full shower facilities.
• Features a dedicated co-working space (Nice!!) and health club.
• Projected to cater primarily to the corporate and leisure markets, with the latter benefiting from strong projected growth rates for population in Surrey and visiting friends and family.
• With 37,000-40,000 guests per year expected at Civic Hotel, it is estimated that more than $3.6 million in ancillary revenue will be injected into local businesses and services each year based on the average international visitor to Canada spending $99.60 per day in 2011 (Canadian Tourism Commission).
• Civic Hotel will also generate 50 full-time jobs and the overall project will create more than 200 jobs during construction.
• Designed by Vancouver-based Cotter Architects and Portland-based ZGF Architects, the progressive architecture and modern design of Civic Hotel reflect an international outlook and the city’s South Asian cultural influences.
• Two-storey “glass box” grand lobby will be shared by the residences, offices and hotel, functioning as a social hub.
• Lobby draws inspiration from the surrounding forests and the rich regional history of the timber industry. It boasts a modern sculptural staircase of walnut, stainless steel and glass.
• Rooms are stylish yet practical for work – with functional desk chairs, precision lighting and uncluttered workspaces – and also feature expansive floor-to-ceiling windows.
• In-slab radiant heating/cooling system and natural ventilation system will provide guests with a superior comfort level not possible with conventional mechanical systems.
• Hotel roof will act as an amenity space for socializing and special events, offering guests a front row seat to activities taking place on the civic plaza below and providing views to sunrises over the Coast Mountains and stunning sunsets over Vancouver Island.
