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.

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.
