Confidence in the residential construction sector remains strong in Surrey as more than $808 million in housing developments were given approval to proceed by Surrey City Council at last night’s Regular Council – Land Use Meeting.

Projects of note include several apartment towers ranging from 26 to 49-storeys, three dedicated rental apartment buildings, and a live/work residential townhome project.

“It’s no secret that Surrey has always been a desirable place for young families and first-time homeowners looking to get into the market,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “Among the new developments, I am especially pleased with the projects that will expand the rental housing stock in Surrey. These new projects approved by Council will bring even more housing options on stream for people looking to call Surrey home.”
