3/10

Those five towers are currently under construction and another three are under planning which will make the skyline so much better. For sure though out of all Vancouvers suburbs Surrey definently has the most sprawl. I'm just glad they are starting to create a city center like all the other suburbs seem to have. And unfortunately I don't think that super tall 86 story tower is being constructed anymore. The last mayor said he would build it if he was re-elected but he wasn't so it was split down into two smaller 40 story towers.

And someone asked about the skyline in the distance, I'm pretty sure its New Westminster, I don't think you can see Burnaby from here and it's definently not Vancouver.

The new wave of tower construction in Surrey has commenced with the Infinity development well underway. When completed this tower will be at 36 storeys, along with 4 other towers in the same development, 3 of which will also be 36 storeys and the fourth a bit shorter.

Here's an image of the skyline showing Surrey's most recent addition... the condo tower in the foreground. 4 more towers will join it on that site and another 2 across the street, among others.



Not much at the moment but there should be many more towers to come over the next few years.

I dont see how you rate this skyline any more than a 3. The city is ALMOST bigger than Regina and Saskatoon put together, with a population of 450,000 (2008). In about 10+ years, Surrey will be the biggest city in BC, surpassing Vancouvers 610,000. The skyline is very lacking, considering Canada has some of the best skylines for cities of this size.
I give it a 3. In a few years I'll give it a 5, which is still dissapointing, since a 5 still sucks for the future largest city in BC.
