Brief locals developments updates

This thread is for us to updating our city's current construction developements status. Please post only two photos for each project per entry and try to spread it out in different time instead of posting all projects updates at once. Also, try not to post the same photos already posted in your city section. Thanks!

I'll start mine shortly.

So far this is my most favorite project under construction in the Lower Mainland.

Surrey's City Centre will soon be the home of Coast Capital Savings' new head office, set to become part of downtown's skyline in late 2015.B.C.'s second largest credit union will take up roughly 70 per cent of a 180,000square-foot, nine-storey headquarters on the south side of the King George SkyTrain station. The building will be named "Help Headquarters" in alignment with Coast Capital's mission to provide simple financial help to customers. An estimated 70 per cent of the staff at Coast Capital's Guildford and Central City offices live south of the Fraser River, which was key in the decision to move the production to City Centre. All 700-plus employees in those two offices will move to the new building upon completion."Right now, we have applied for rezoning the property and a development permit on the specific Coast Capital building," said Dan Turner, executive vice president of PCI Developments Corp., the company that will construct the headquarters. "We would hope to have all permits in place by next summer. " Turner added that the first phase of the project will cost about $100 million and the overall construction will take an estimated two years.

Anyone out there interested in this? If so post some developments, please! Doesn't have to be from your own city if there are not any, you can choose some from other Canadian cities if you like!

I hope you and me are not the only two true skyscrapers fans here. May be we should ask jan to change the name of his site to "Who cares about skyscrapers!".

Joking aside, the main reason I joined this site more than 6 years ago because I love skyscrapers, I could look at all those big tall buildings images all day without getting tired of it. To me all the other stuffs we are also posting here are just the bi products and we should be able to live without them.
