Hungerford Properties has advanced through 3rd reading of the zoning bylaw with the City of Surrey, getting one step closer to launching Hazelwood, a new 152-unit family-oriented townhome development at 16560 and 16561 17a Avenue. Located in one of the fastest-growing, up-and-coming areas in South Surrey, Hazelwood is set among forested land and green spaces, near the retail hub of Morgan Crossing, and within easy reach of White Rock beach. The South Grandview neighbourhood also offers convenient connections to the United States through the Peace Arch and Pacific Highway border crossings.

Exceeding the City of Surrey’s environmental and infrastructure requirements for new developments, Hazelwood is set on 10 acres of land and will include 2.72 acres of publicly-accessible open space, a habitat corridor, parkland, and over 5 acres of trails. 380 new trees will be planted on site, supplementing the existing extensive retention of trees and native vegetation throughout the development. Hazelwood also delivers significant road network improvements on 164a Street and 17a Avenue.

Hungerford Properties sees their impact in a broader context, honoring a social corporate responsibility for our community, one of our core values. Using this approach enabled the project team to achieve considerable environmental benefits at Hazelwood, building a legacy and solidifying a positive impact on the South Grandview neighbourhood.

As part of Hungerford’s efforts to continue to develop its team’s environmental knowledge, skills and experience, and give back to the community in collaboration with the City of Surrey’s Stewardship Program, a group of Hungerford employees removed invasive plant species at the Hazelnut Meadows Community Park.

Ciccozzi Architecture, Aplin Martin, PGL, and Arbortech were all instrumental partners in working with Hungerford Properties on the rezoning approval. The development of project amenities and environmental protection were accomplished through the hard work and commitment from both internal and external consultant teams and in collaboration with the committed and professional planning team at the City of Surrey.

Construction is set to begin in 2019.
