South Surrey is one of the most desirable and rapidly expanding communities in Surrey. With a population of 104,051 (2016 census) and growing, and with more families seeking a new home in this community, Miracon has decided to construct our next three development projects in this spectacular area. So why have over 20% of Surrey’s population decided that they want to make South Surrey their home?
We’ve discovered five aspects of South Surrey that we think makes it a winner:
#1 – Desirable Family Community:
South Surrey boasts a high concentration of people over the age of 60, but in recent years there has been a significant increase in residential development. This provides the perfect opportunity for young families to relocate to this family-oriented area of the city. Miracon’s three South Surrey developments – WESTSIDE, SOUTHSIDE, and SOUTHCREST, provide ideal neighbourhoods that will allow downsizers and young families alike to find a balance between their busy lifestyle and their desire for comfort and convenience. Safe, friendly streets never go out of style and our home buyers love what we have to offer!
#2 – Outdoor Activities:
With an abundance of parks, outdoor trails, and recreational activities available, South Surrey appeals to outdoor enthusiasts of every age. Redwood Park, Semiahmoo Trail and Dart Hill Gardens are located nearby all three of our new communities. Check out the many opportunities for energetic joggers and cyclists, as well as those just wanting to take a relaxing walk through nature.
South Surrey is home to Softball City, one of North America’s leading softball and slow pitch sporting complexes. This outstanding facility hosts the Canada Cup International Softball Championship every year in July.
Outdoor festivals and events take place in this community throughout the year. Our Miracon team gets involved in as many of these outdoor activities as possible. Not only do we work at building new homes in this community, but many of us live here too. Together, we’re building for a successful community of the future!
#3 – Abundant Beaches:
Who doesn’t love going to the beach? South Surrey is home to two of Vancouver’s most popular summer destinations; Crescent Beach and White Rock Beach.
All three of Miracon’s neighbourhoods – WESTSIDE, SOUTHSIDE, SOUTHCREST are located less than 10 kilometers from both of these incredible beach destinations.
Spend an afternoon at Crescent Beach. Swim in the ocean, play beach volleyball, grab an ice cream cone and wander the trails. Blackie Spit Park is well-known for its five kilometer nature trail walk, home to almost 200 species of birds, and families of harbour seals. There’s even an off-leash beach for your dog!
If you want a little more urban ambience, White Rock Beach and the famous Strip, located on Marine Drive in South Surrey, has great restaurants, for both casual and fine dining! The eight-kilometer stretch of sand along Semiahmoo Bay is a very popular summer destination for locals and tourists alike. Imagine how easy it will be to grab your beach bag and picnic lunch and head out to the beach for the afternoon, when you live at one of Miracon’s new neighbourhoods. You’ll be the envy of all your friends!
#4 – Shopping:
We’re guessing that you’ve already heard of the very popular Grandview Corners Shopping Centre and the Shops at Morgan Crossing. Home to a number of trendy outlet stores and boutique shops, these two shopping districts are must-see destinations for shopping, fitness centers, coffee shops and restaurants.
You’ll be able to easily walk to or drive to this unique outdoor shopping experience from all three of Miracon’s newest neighbourhoods. They feature over 60 national and boutique style stores and services, for all of your shopping needs. With plenty of free parking, dog friendly amenities and numerous locations to enjoy lunch or stop for coffee, you’ll want to be there. Whether you live at our WESTSIDE, SOUTHSIDE, or SOUTHCREST neighbourhood, we know that you’re going to appreciate the convenience that this will bring to your busy lifestyle!
#5 – Fantastic Schools:
We know that when you’re moving into a new home in a growing area, access to good education can be an important part of your decision. As the fastest growing school district in British Columbia, the Surrey school district currently has seventeen elementary schools and three high schools located in South Surrey. The district is also planning a new 1500 student high school in the Grandview Heights area, scheduled for completion in approximately 3-4 years. There are new elementary schools also planned for the area around Miracon’s WESTSIDE, SOUTHSIDE, and SOUTHCREST neighbourhoods.
South Surrey is also home to the very-desirable Southridge School; a K-12 private school that has been ranked amongst the top five academic school in the province over the last five years.
All three of our current developments are ideally situated to provide young families with abundant options for their children’s education.
Post-Secondary education is accessed via Surrey’s major highway networks and transportation systems. SFU Surrey Campus, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, UBC, Trinity Western University are just some of the options available.
