We looked at construction projects in the Downtown core in our previous blog. In today's blog, we'll be moving away from the Downtown core and looking at a few major office development projects in the suburbs.

 [1] Marine Gateway, located at Cambie and Marine Drive, is an upcoming PCI project designed to become one of Vancouver's newest suburban mixed-use complex.  With 820,000ft2 in residential condos, rental housing, office, retail and public space, this development project will create a neighbourhood booming with new tenants and with a wide array of shopping and services. This convenient location is easily accessible to two major transit hubs and will create a commonplace for local residents.

[2] Situated at 2025 Willingdon Avenue, the SOLO District Office, has a target completion date of Summer 2015. This project is another mixed-use complex featuring a residential component with 1,400 units in four towers, a retail component with over 100,000ft2 including Whole Foods Market and an office component with 230,000ft2 over 12 floors. This urban community will transform the North Burnaby area by developing a commonplace for locals to work, live and shop. 

 [3] The Renfrew Business Centre is still underway with a completion date in 2016. Located at 2665 Renfrew Street, this upcoming development enjoys immediate access to rapid transit and is situated in fast reach of Downtown Vancouver. This office building fits perfectly with the vision of Translink's Transport 2040 Plan and the GVRD's Livable Region Strategic Plan in that this suburban complex has easy access to the Downtown Core through city transit.

 [4] King George Station is the last of the development projects in the suburbs at 9875 King George Boulevard. Perfectly situated mere steps from the King George Skytrain Station, this mixed-use development will provide over 760,000ft2 of office and retail space with plans to house 1.2M ft2 of residential space in a later phase. The main attraction is the Coast Capital Saving Union's Help Headquarters in which the traditional work space is thrown out the window and Coast Capital employees will experience a new concept work environment. This project will be another step towards transforming the rapidly evolving Surrey Downtown core.
