Surrey's New Centerpiece
Surrey’s new City Hall—a new landmark in City Centre—is now officially open for business as of this week. (You might have read about it in International City Halls Quarterly... if it were a publication that existed.)
Mayor Dianne Watts (shown at a recent event, left) lauds the opening as a milestone for the city, an iconic piece of architecture, and a further catalyst for investment in the area. The vision is to transform Surrey’s City Centre into an economic, social, and cultural hub. Since the announcement that there’d be a new city hall, the private sector has attracted more than $3B in current and future investment into the area.
The grand opening for the new city hall will be held April 26. New city hall amenities for the community include a gathering/celebration venue and urban park space, a theatre and performing arts venue (a perfect place to put on our play NNN Leases: a Play in Three Acts), a public daycare, and public art areas.
