A mixed-use, urban centre project

Surrey City Centre, British Columbia

Developed & approvals by Rize Alliance Properties Ltd.

Rezoning approved fall 2019

Passages: Projects

Passages proposes to turn a full city block into an integrated and engaged mixed-use community. 
Alison Brooks Architects (London, U.K.) evolved the concept of a porous ground-scape which will serve over 2,000 residents, while actively engaging the local community
with an active streetscape, both external and internal to the project. 

In a daring break from Metro-Vancouver’s well-established tower and podium form, ABA Architects have designed an active, liveable and safe streetscape, largely without the ubiquitous podium form. 

The project is complemented by street-front retail along Whalley Boulevard, market homes, purpose built rental,

a daycare and 2,700sm (29,000sf) of amenity space.

Passages represents an elegant and unique solution to program additional height and density on a key urban site while engaging the internal community to that of the surrounding Surrey City Centre.
