Prado Café in the Lobby

Award-winning Barista Sammy Piccolo Brings Artisan Coffee to Surrey

Those who know Artigiano and 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters know Sammy Piccolo, the owner and operator of five Prado coffee shops in Metro Vancouver.

As a four-time Canadian Barista Champion, first ever winner of World Latte Art Championship, winner at the Coffee Fest Latte Art Championship, and four-time top-three placement for Canada at the World Barista Championships, Sammy understands how to get the best out of the café experience.

When asked about why he decided to open another Prado at 3 Civic Plaza Sammy said, “It’s going to be a great café. It’s going to be a meeting place for people. I really feel the energy of this place.”

Prado Café is an awesome addition to the grand lobby and will be one of the many social anchors for the community — for residents, guests and locals alike. Prado will support Civic Hotel with continental breakfast and other menu items. “We’re going to make everything in-house,” adds Sammy. “We’re going to do our own home-style baking, we’re going to do brunch, sandwiches, and the best coffee.”

3 Civic Plaza Featured in Surrey604’s Exclusive Web Series

Leave a Comment

An influential local blog called Surrey604 partnered with David Smith from David Smith Homes to get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at one of Century Group‘s most exciting projects: 3 Civic Plaza. In the premier episode of The Local, a Surrey-based web series that focuses on building up our local communities, 3 Civic Plaza is recognized as a local icon that will be alive with visitors, residents, students, government and business people in Surrey.

The episode 3 Civic Plaza – An Icon Arises, places emphasis on the project’s identity as more than just the tallest tower being built in the City of Surrey, but a community. We were asked to share what makes 3 Civic Plaza iconic to the current Surrey community, such as, Prado Cafe’s plans to move into Surrey and a first look at Civic Hotel, Autograph Collection. As we head closer to project completion date that is projected for Fall 2017, we’re happy to see unified support from the City, partners, and other guests, including:

We want to extend our appreciation, as without the support and recognition from the local community, partners, and staff, 3 Civic Plaza will not have been as well-recognized and successful as it is today.

Construction Progress: Headed for the Clouds

The construction progress is impressive in the month of July!


The bottom floors of the hotel are nearly complete—drywall, insulation, and bathroom and bedroom configurations are already in place.


We took the lift to the rooftop of the Civic Hotel and was greeted with the most breathtaking view in Surrey.


Decorating the top of the rooftop ceiling and on the walls are the signature guitar picks that help distinguish 3 Civic Plaza in Surrey City Centre. Finally, with first layer of waterproofing membrane installed, the hotel pool is taking shape.

Currently, we are pouring concrete on floor 36 and the vignette displays are nearly complete for approval. Soon, we will be able to get a taste of what the completed suites will look like upon completion.
