Closed Surrey school for sale for $9.8 million

Fleetwood Elementary on the market

Fleetwood Elementary is on the market for $10 million.

Do you have an extra $10 million or so in your bank account? If so, a decommissioned Surrey school and the land it sits on could be yours.

Fleetwood Elementary, on 88 Avenue near 152 Street, is being sold by the Surrey School District.

The school was closed in 2009 due to its inappropriate location in a commercial area between three major thoroughfares (152 Street, 88 Avenue and Fraser Highway).

The district, as required by the B.C. School Act, put out an expression of interest to see if any government agencies or community groups had a suggested use for the school, but nothing came of the effort.

So now, the 1944-era building and surrounding 5.2 acres of land is for sale, with an asking price of $9.79 million.

In May, the school district also put out a request for proposals for Anniedale Elementary. The traditional program at that school was moved last fall because of the rapidly changing neighbourhood it was in near the Golden Ears Bridge. Eventually it, too, could be put up for sale.

While Surrey is desperate for additional school space in several parts of the city, the closed schools are in neighbourhoods where student enrolment is not increasing, in addition to being in inappropriate and busy areas.

Offers for Fleetwood Elementary are being accepted until Aug. 23. More information is available at www.sd36.bc.ca
