GRANDVIEW COURT APARTMENT TOWERS

SURREY, B.C

As one of the first large housing developments with a taller tower in the area now known as the City Centre, Grandview Court was a groundbreaking development that had to resolve formerly unaddressed issues.  Most significant was the cash donation to a previously non-existent municipal affordable housing fund that had to be administered over the phased development of the project.  Road dedications also created an opportunity for innovative density transfer calculations and cost sharing agreements.

The ultimate success of the project highlighted that newer ways of approaching these forms of development were required and could be accomplished to the satisfaction of the developer and the City.
