Today, Whalley is the focus of significant development. With a strong transportation network that provides easy access to the rest of Metro Vancouver, an affordable housing market, established shopping malls, and a wealth of parks (Green Timbers Urban Forest, Bear Creek Park and Holland Park), the culturally diverse area is poised for change. The City of Surrey’s plan to develop the City Centre area in which Venue is located into the region’s main business, cultural and activity centre is well underway and Tien Sher is proud to be part of the change. In 2006, we began building the Quattro neighbourhood where Venue is located and we’re delighted to see old favourites such as the BC Lions training facility and Whalley Little League rediscovered by new residents, along with all the new additions to the neighbourhood.
AN HISTORIC DISTRICT ON THE EDGE OF CHANGE
City Centre is home to an SFU campus, a shopping centre with more than 140 stores and services, a new library and city hall – as well as the newly expanded Surrey Memorial hospital, RCMP headquarters, Chuck Bailey Rec Centre and two SkyTrain stations (Gateway and Surrey Central).
