The Future Lives Here
BlueSky Properties are to build a high density, mixed-use, highrise development in Surrey City Centre near City Hall. Called Brightside, it will be built in three phases with one tower per phase. Tower 1 is a 40-storey market residential building with ground floor retail space. Tower 2 will be a 50-storey mixed-use building with ground floor commercial units and a 17-storey office building as part of the podium, while condominiums are to be located on the upper floors. Tower 3 has been slated as a 50-storey residential building with an 8-storey podium containing 200 market rental apartments and condominiums in the highrise.
Located in the centre of the site, along a north-south mews connecting 104 Avenue to 105 Avenue, is a 2-storey amenity building at the north end and a 2.5-storey commercial lowrise at the south. A variety of community gathering spaces include a public plaza at the corner of City Parkway and 104 Avenue, a dog park on the north side of Tower 1, an amenity green at the centre of the site, and numerous landscaped sitting areas scattered throughout. The lively combination of plaza, market hall, and restaurant lining 104 Avenue is intended draw people into the site.
Floor Plans for Brightside
Brightside will offer a mixture of 1,138 condominiums, 200 secured market rental apartments, and 14 2-bedroom townhomes in three towers with the following mix of units:
- 247 x studios
- 605 x 1-bedroom
- 484 x 2-bedroom
- 2 x 3-bedroom
- 14 x 2-bedroom townhouses
The first phase of the development is a 40-storey residential highrise located at the corner of City Parkway and 104 Avenue that will have 418 condominiums. Be sure to sign up to our VIP list above for priority access to Brightside updates.
Amenities at Brightside
The development’s three highrises surround a publicly accessible central plaza and mews that will feature a lowrise amenity building and a lowrise commercial building that could potentially function as a market hall with a large restaurant or brewery. The plaza will be animated by ground level retail and restaurant spaces in the three buildings fronting 104 Avenue, associated outside seating/dining areas, and social spaces, as well as with landscaping and public art.
The majority of Brightside’s indoor amenities will be found in a dedicated 3-storey building at the northern portion of the site along 105 Avenue. It will primarily function as a wellness centre with fitness and flex rooms for yoga, tai chi, and other related health activities. Each of the residential towers will offer additional indoor amenity spaces. For example, in Phase 1 of construction, Tower 1 will have rooftop amenities featuring a games room, study rooms, and a lounge with an outdoor patio and dining areas.
Private and semi-private outdoor amenities are also provided for residents of each building. These include a community green outside the amenity building, play zones, a dog park, seating areas, and landscaped pockets and planters with benches.
Parking and Storage
A five-level underground parkade will contain secure storage for 1,700 bicycles and 1,348 vehicle parking stalls, consisting of 933 residential, 263 office, 59 retail, 25 restaurant, 68 visitor, and 7 MODO EV car share.
