Surry, British Columbia

Robust growth is accommodated through sensitive urban infill 

The City of Surry, a suburb of Vancouver British Columbia, anticipates a doubling of its population by mid-century. This proposal, which completes the street-and-block network and which optimizes the underlying green infrastructure, presents the policies, designs and infrastructure investments necessary to accommodate this growth. Design studies demonstrate how more than half of the residential growth, in the form of accessory units, granny flats, and contextual multi-family buildings, can be essentially “invisible”.
