Surrey’s newest all-rental complex boasts 514 homes next to SkyTrain

July 1 is opening date for ‘Metro’ project

Surrey’s newest all-rental residential “village” is set to open with 514 homes built next to Scott Road SkyTrain station.

Comprised of four six-storey buildings, “Metro” is WestStone Group’s second purpose-built rental building in Surrey.

A ribbon-cutting event was held Wednesday (May 26) at the 126A Street site, adjacent to the Home Depot store and across the road from North Surrey Sport & Ice Complex.

July 1 is the opening date for “Surrey’s first completely transit orientated rental property,” according to details posted on Centurion Property Associates’ website (cpliving.com), with monthly rental fees starting at $1,375.

Metro info is also posted to weststonegroup.com, the Surrey-based developer’s website.

The housing project is “a modern and urban mixed residential custom rental village,” according to Bob Dominick, WestStone’s vice-president.

“Metro, along with its virtual concierge, offers a transit-orientated lifestyle to Surrey’s growing population,” Dominick said. “Metro features 365,460 square feet of residential space along with 11,867 square feet of ground-floor retail.”

Another WestStone Group project, the 146-unit Fusion, opened near Surrey Memorial Hospital in 2018 as the first dedicated rental property building in the City Centre area in close to 25 years.
