Construction has begun on City Centre 3, the next phase of the Lark Group’s Health and Technology District development in Surrey.
When complete in 2021, City Centre 3 will be a 130,000 square-foot, 10-storey LEED Gold certified building with street-level retail space and rooftop terrace. It is the third building in a series of up to eight high tech buildings. The first two buildings at the district have been built, with City Centre 2 completed earlier this year and anchored by Safe Software.
The overall District will consist of more than 1.5 million square-feet and estimates over 15,000 jobs, and will contribute over $1.1 billion annually into B.C.’s economy.
“We purposely built the Health and Technology District, starting with City Centre 1, directly across from one of Canada’s busiest hospitals at Surrey Memorial Hospital, so that we can attract edge-thinking companies to help innovate and transform the healthcare space in the region,” says Larry Fisher, [resident of Lark Group. “We have seen many breakthroughs from companies located within the District and we are well positioned to see more at City Centre 3.”
The Lark Group developed the Health and Technology District in anticipation of the rapidly growing health and technology sector in B.C. The District attracts a large number of like-minded health, education and technology based organizations and professionals that are focused on innovation and B.C.’s emerging technology economy.
The high profile community is home to networks of academics, entrepreneurs, multinational and start-up companies, and some of the most advanced digital health, wellness, technology, and clinical service organizations.
