Event Details

Join Bob Ransford and Joanne Shao of Century Group on July 9 for a project tour of Locale, the first completed phase at Century City Holland Park. Anchored by Surrey's largest urban park and adjacent to the King George Skytrain Station, the 19-storey tower elevates transit-oriented living with 243 premium rental apartments, from studios to three-bedroom residences.

Locale features an unparalleled arrival experience with its triple-height lobby space directly connected to a new food and beverage offering by Century Group, Combine Cafe & Bar, which offers artisanal food and beverages daily from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Indoor and outdoor amenities at Locale span from the ground floor to the rooftop, including public art by renowned Canadian artist Ken Lum, a courtyard and orchard, communal kitchen and lounge, games room, bike workshop, maker space, co-working area, pet grooming, and more. As Canada's first WiredScore Home Platinum-certified multi-family building, Locale is a smart building with features geared towards both the tenant and long-term quality property management.

Please join us from the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh).
