Surrey is one of Canada's fastest growing cities. Its emerging "University District" is anchored by the Bing Thom designed Simon Fraser University, the new City Hall, Skytrain, Holland Park, the new Public Library and extensive shopping and recreation amenities. Also nearby is the developing "Innovation Boulevard" with a concentration of health technology companies and services.
It is no surprise Surrey has been identified as one of the best places to invest by Western Investor.
Just announced is the $3 billion investment in the Surrey-Newton-Guildford Light Rail Transit system. https://www.surrey.ca/city-government/27745.aspx
Also, Surrey is a finalist (in partnership with Vancouver) for the $50 million Smart Cities infrastructure prize.
