The Passages, designed by UK Architect Alison Brooks, is a one-million sq.ft. mixed-use development in Surrey City Centre.
It aspires to create an exceptional urban condition by providing free-flowing public space with four landscaped courtyards and multiple pedestrian connections throughout the site. This is an atypical urban strategy in North America, where dense city blocks are often enclosed by townhome podiums.
The Passages will add 954 market residential homes, 172 market rental homes, a 4,400 sq.ft daycare and 18,116 sq.ft of commercial space. There will be 70,000 sq.ft of shared public outdoor space.
40% of the rental will be family-oriented with a 4,400 sq.ft childcare on site.
