To pay tribute to Surrey's ongoing economic strength, on Thursday, September 25th Century Group, and Marriott International will welcome media to a celebratory unveiling of the luxury hotel suites for the Civic Hotel at 3 Civic Plaza, Autograph Collection®. With an address from Joann Pfeifer, General Manager, Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown, Sean Hodgins, President, Century Group and Anita Huberman, CEO Surrey Board of Trade, this event will signify the city's move into new luxury markets and into becoming the next major business hub in the Metro Vancouver region.

With over $3 billion in current and future investments in development, Surrey has grown beyond its neighbouring cities, to attract major players within the business community and residents looking for new luxury housing options. Recent and projected additions to the education, business and hospitality sectors have further propelled Surrey's economic strength, with 1,370 full-time jobs created just within the 3 Civic Plaza. Surrey continues to attract new residents who share the vision for the future of Downtown Surrey and want to be a part of its growth as it develops into the next major business hub and city centre.

More than 70% sold, the demand for a luxury product like 3 Civic Plaza is evident. And now with the insertion of the Marriott Autograph Collection, Surrey is expected to see continued growth in this market.
