On the north side of 96 Avenue just across from Surrey Memorial Hospital, the second phase of Lark Group's City Centre development is taking shape. The 12-storey first phase produced a LEED Gold office and medical campus in 2014 that has greatly contributed to the neighbourhood's emerging health-focused commercial portfolio. With the second building promising an additional 180,000 square feet across 11 storeys, the district's collection of contemporary surgical and clinical space will receive a significant boost.

Retail will be positioned on the ground floor, with another 375 parking stalls planned to fit within a five-level parkade. In addition to an exercise room, common desks, and outdoor terraces, two-wheeled commuters will enjoy on-site bicycle storage and shower facilities, an increasingly recurring feature in corporate offices as cycling to work gains traction throughout the region.

With the King George SkyTrain station a brief five-minute walk away, the development's highly accessible location should attract a range of medical and business professionals. Though the building has not yet received any cladding, the concrete skeleton has risen seven floors above the street, just four floors away from its structural zenith. Delivery of the second phase is expected at the end of 2017; the Lark Group website also advertises a third phase that would add 116,000 square feet to the complex.
