Nice! It'll be a nice fill in gap for that area as well as creating new residential area as there are currently none there.

It would be nice to see the area of the park and ride eventually be redeveloped to have the parking but also have other uses like that development. The areas pretty dead when all the cars that park there are gone so making better use of the station and space would be awesome.

The South Westminster Plan for that area calls for that. The WestStone development and the Ice Rinks/Rec Centre should help kick-start the build-out of that plan.

The entire Scott Rd parking lot is designated as 'Transit Oriented Urban Village'. The plan is quite old now though, completed back in 2003. Has seen virtually no development activity according to it since being adopted.

It's not an appealing place to live now for sure but it's a good investment opportunity...as I don't imagine it'll be to expensive to buy initially. Once the area builds up and when it's becomes more livable (more developments, more commercials, nicer landscaping), chances are others will take a second look. If you get in early, you could* potentially make a profit. Don't forget transit is there and there aren't that many locales with direct access to transit. With prices everywhere so high, unless the person is loaded, this is a good place to start getting into the market.

How much of that industrial area in northwest Surrey has been rezoned for residential? In many municipalities they're trying to stop doing that.

A rental property with SkyTrain at your doorstep? Downtown New West or Surrey City Centre 5 mins away by train? A lot of people would. It's not like youre venturing out into the junk-yard sprawl. There will be retail and amenity space in the complex itself, with the train steps away for everything else.

Surrey designates future land-use through the OCP. Much of South Westminster is Industrial, Mixed-Employment, Commercial. Within the Commercial lands is where Surrey is allowing Mixed-Use Residential.

The Subject site is currently designated Mixed-Employment, but they are applying for an OCP amendment.

From Bob Ransford's twitter:

Northgate - strata office building in Tsawwassen.

Own an office at the new Northgate, located on 56th St at the entrance to idyllic Tsawwassen. 30 mins from downtown. 7 mins from the ferry.

Honestly, they shouldn't be allowed to call it Northgate, given there's already a Northgate in Burnaby, and it's not in a location anybody would consider north! It's in south Delta!

^Given the number of development applications already in process (including 40+ towers), affordability compared to North of the Fraser, shifting market towards condos, and Surrey leading in population growth, the ball will roll itself.

Will Seattle tourists drive a little less than two hours south to Great Wolf Lodge or drive about two hours north to Great Wolf Lodge.

That is a great addition to the South of the Fraser part of the region. I thought that, if anywhere, it would be built at the Tsawwassen Commons/Mills.

^I could see the Great Wolf Lodge being built on the Semiahmoo First Nations land right next to the border / White Rock on the waterfront. The band has been wanting to do something with that land for a while, and I believe this could be it.

RIP Pacific Inn Resort and Conference Centre. Unless they offer rooms at like 50$ a night it'll be the nail in the coffin.
